What Is Life Insurance?

Life insurance offers a way to replace the loss of income that occurs when someone dies (usually the person who produces the majority of income in a family situation).

 A good life insurance program does more than just replace the loss of income that occurs if you die. It should also provide money to cover the new costs that arise after your death — funeral expenses,  taxes, probate costs,  the need for housekeepers and child care, and so on.

In almost all cases, your beneficiary can use the cash benefits in the way he or she sees fit, without restriction.

 What Happens To Your Family If You Don't Have Enough Coverage?

Under any circumstances, the loss of a loved one is a traumatic experience.  But, if your family is also left without sufficient money to meet  basic living needs or prepare for future goals, they will have to cope with a financial crisis at the same time.

y to "get back on their  feet" emotionally and financially, your family might be forced to move to a less desirable home or community, abandon education  and career plans, reorder family priorities (such as the amount  of time spent with the children) and, in general, cut back on the  quality of life you have worked hard to achieve.

 Your family might even be forced to go into debt simply to pay the expenses,  like funeral costs,  taxes, and medical bills, that result from your death.  A moment's reflection will tell you that the lack of sufficient life insurance coverage when a loved one dies can have devastating consequences for a family...consequences that can last for years.
