September is Life Insurance Awareness Month

More than 80 percent of Americans agree that most people need life insurance to protect loved ones from experiencing financial loss; so, why is it that 40 percent of Americans haven’t purchased life insurance or explored more protective plans?

Life insurance may not be on everyone’s radar, but for most, it should be; according to a 2016 Insurance Barometer Study by LIMRA and Life Happens, every one in three households would struggle to pay for living expenses if the primary earner died.

To make sure Americans recognize the need to have life insurance, Rafail Insurance Group joins more than 100 of the nation’s leading insurance companies and industry groups in educating citizens during September’s Life Insurance Awareness Month.

The peace of mind and incredible source of financial security life insurance offers grieving families is priceless.

As families have fewer financial resources than in the past, now is more important than ever to ensure that your life insurance coverage is enough to protect your family. If you’re not sure if your coverage is adequate, consider this: LIMRA and Life Happens found that 40% of Americans don’t possess adequate life insurance coverage.

What is life insurance used for, exactly? These are the top three reasons Americans purchase a life insurance policy:

  • Cover burial and final expenses (91%)
  • Assist with lost wage replacement (66%)
  • Transfer wealth (63%)

Given the importance of life insurance, what could be causing the reluctance to purchase a policy? Here are a few possibilities:

  • Not knowing how much insurance to buy.
  • Prioritizing other financial obligations.
  • Uncertainty about pricing – most consumers estimate the price of life insurance to be more than three times its actual cost!

There are several types of policies available, such as Term Life Insurance, Whole Life Insurance, Universal Life Insurance, and more, and we are happy to help you navigate your choices.
