Let's face it, our financial security isn't what it used to be
Wheeling, IL (Vocus) September 1, 2010
AccuQuote, a leader in providing term life insurance quotes to people across the United States, recognizes life insurance awareness month. The multi-carrier life insurance quoting and brokerage firm encourages consumers to use the month of September as an opportunity to review their life insurance needs.
“Let’s face it, our financial security isn’t what it used to be,” says Byron Udell, founder and CEO of AccuQuote. “Many of our homes have decreased in value, and with it have decreased or wiped out any equity we may have had. Our investments are worth less than they were just a couple of years ago, and we’re earning a fraction of a percent of interest in our savings.”
Even through an economic downturn, there is one source of financial security that still stands strong – life insurance. Life insurance serves as the foundation of a family’s overall financial security. If consumers do not already have life insurance, September is the perfect time of year to obtain coverage. Currently, term life insurance rates are near record lows. For instance, a healthy 40 year old male can obtain a $500,000 policy for less than $35 a month.
Families with existing coverage should conduct a free life insurance policy review and analysis. “Review your life insurance to make sure your current face amount satisfies your family’s financial needs. If you had a baby or bought a new home since you first purchased your policy, you may need to increase your coverage,” says Udell. “Also make sure that your beneficiaries are up to date.”
