You Leave Behind
As difficult as it is to think about your own mortality, this is one circumstance where ignorance is not bliss. Hospital bills, end-of-life care, and burial/memorial expenses can be debilitating for your surviving family and friends. And if you pass away suddenly, this financial stress only adds to an overwhelming emotional burden.
Yet despite the necessity of this coverage, more than half of all Americans have no life insurance and those that do tend to be underinsured.
Whether you have a family or not, your passing will have an impact on those you leave behind. And there is no better way to make sure that they are taken care of than a life insurance policy.
