Life Insurance

What happens to my family, financially, after I die?

It’s a question far too many people don’t ask themselves. And for the ones who do ask it, and take steps to protect their loved ones financially, it all too often proves to be one of the best decisions made.

Don’t leave the future of your loved ones and yourself to chance. The staff at Insurance Advantage can help find the right life insurance for you. We work with each person individually to find the coverage that best fits both their needs and their budget.

Maybe you have purchased life insurance in the past but think that you may need a policy “tune-up”. For example, maybe you have experienced some changes in circumstances such as:

  • You recently married or divorced
  • You have a new child or grandchild
  • You’ve opened or expanded a business
  • You recently purchased a new home
  • You or your spouse recently received an inheritance
  • You have a sizable estate and are concerned about taxes

Advantages of Life Insurance

Having the right life insurance is essential to planning for your present and your future. Not only can life insurance provide assurance for your family after you are gone, many life insurance options offer other benefits and investment opportunities you can take advantage of while you are living.

Life Insurance Death Benefit

When you pass away, your life insurance provides income (tax-free) to your named beneficiary or beneficiaries that can be used to pay funeral expenses, debt, tuition, estate taxes, or virtually any financial need. Your policy can help provide security for your business as well, by enabling partners to buy out the interests of a deceased partner and prevent a forced liquidation.

Living Benefits

The cash value growth of a permanent (whole) life insurance policy is tax-deferred, meaning you do not pay taxes on the growth of cash value, unless money is withdrawn. Loans or withdrawals can be taken against the cash value of a permanent life insurance policy to help with expenses, such as college tuition or the down payment on a home.

The right life insurance coverage for each and every one of our customers is unique. Talk with a member of the Insurance Advantage team today to find out how to protect your family and your future with the right life insurance.

Types of Life Insurance

There are several different types of life insurance products available – the most common include:

Term Life Insurance

Term life insurance provides protection for a specified period of time. If you do not currently have life insurance, term can be a good place to start. It’s generally less expensive than permanent life insurance, and is available in varying time periods with fixed premiums from a one year (annual renewable term) to 30-year (level term) period.

Furthermore, term life insurance is sometimes convertible to permanent coverage, providing you with flexibility as your needs change.

Whole Life Insurance

Whole life insurance is a form of permanent life insurance that remains in force for your entire lifetime, provided premiums are paid as specified in the policy. Whole life insurance can be an investment opportunity, as many whole life insurance policies also build cash value over time.

Universal Life Insurance

Universal life is a form of permanent life insurance characterized by its flexible premiums, face amounts and unbundled pricing structure. Universal life can build cash value, which earns an interest rate that may adjust periodically, but is usually guaranteed not to fall below a certain percentage.
