I am usually uncomfortable dealing with business people, but Hunter is a good guy and made me feel comfortable. I know he’s looking out for my best interests. Thanks to him, I’m sleeping easy again.

Foundation Financial Group offers the following advice from the company’s retirement affiliate, Foundation Retirement Services. With September being National Life Insurance Awareness Month, AVP of Retirement Services Hunter Stewart provides the opportunity to learn more about life insurance and find coverage that will protect your loved ones when you are gone.
“No one schedules a fatal heart attack or a deadly car accident,” said Stewart. “Younger clients think they will live forever, and older ones have often waited until they have health issues that drive up their premiums. Getting life insurance now is ideal for protecting your family against unexpected events. Remember: it’s never too late for life insurance until your life is over.”
About 30 percent of U.S. households have no life insurance coverage at all, and Stewart believes false assumptions and good old-fashioned procrastination are to blame. Having seen sick people get approved and healthy people get declined, he encourages everyone to pick up the phone and start discovering their options.
Life insurance was never a concern for Walter Stoffle, 66, until his own mother passed away in February. Her life insurance covered all of her burial expenses and got Stoffle thinking about his mortality. He began having trouble sleeping, plagued by nightmares of leaving his daughters burdened by the cost of his final expenses.
“I love both my girls and my three grandkids, so I called Hunter up and admitted that I was completely unprepared,” said Stoffle, who is described by family members as a free spirit that only lives in the moment. “He found me a plan I could afford on my limited income of only Social Security without having to hear the snap of a doctor’s latex gloves. I am usually uncomfortable dealing with business people, but Hunter is a good guy and made me feel comfortable. I know he’s looking out for my best interests. Thanks to him, I’m sleeping easy again.”
Life insurance may not be what most people think about when they begin retirement planning, but Stewart says it is a key element in providing for the future. The death of a spouse or primary breadwinner can derail even the best laid plans. Survivors are often left to process grief along with funeral costs and medical expenses that quickly deplete savings and investments.
When thinking about life insurance coverage, Stewart recommends starting with figuring out how much money would be needed to meet immediate obligations and how much future income would be required to sustain the household. To get an idea of your needs, use an online life insurance calculator. Contact a professional life insurance agent for a detailed analysis that encompasses your family’s specific situation.
“With a quick, consultative, no-pressure conversation, I’m confident I can find a solution for anyone,” said Stewart. “Walter dreaded a doctor’s visit, so I looked for a plan that approved him without an examination and that was within his budget. Foundation Retirement Services works with over 30 of the top carriers in the business. So when we shop for our clients, we find the best fit for each person.”
Hunter Steward is licensed in Life, Health & Annuities. His vast experience in the life insurance realm stems from having worked for one of the largest insurance companies in the world and as an independent agent. He prefers being a broker at Foundation Retirement Services because he can search multiple companies for the best options that will fit his clients’ needs.
