Life and Death
In the immortal words of Tina Turner, ‘What has love got to do with it?’ You could say are we talking about life or death or both? In some circumstances love has to do with death as well, but that is not the area that we are talking about today. Maybe a better term would be ‘if you love somebody set them free’, the great poet Sting of course. Now you may wonder what all this has to do with a blog about life insurance? That is the crux of the matter. Would you get affordable life insurance to set them free?
There have been numerous studies about the number of Americans with life insurance and the age groups most likely to have cover or the amount of coverage by gender etc. However, the bigger problem is really the number of people who have no life insurance what so ever, not even enough to cover the costs of a simple burial. Did you know that today, the average cost of a funeral is $7,000 – $10,000. Not a small amount and for some people this sum of money, on top of the recent death of their loved one is enough to take them over the edge.
Cost of cover
Are you aware that many people are just put off buying life insurance because of the perceived cost and have not actually investigated it. It takes a couple minutes of your time to obtain quotes online from a number of different providers and compare the costs. Use your own zip code to see what companies are active in your location and investigate for yourself.
If you have seen the film, you know the words – ‘Love actually is all around’. It would be a strong argument to say well maybe that isn’t the case. If you love someone, and want to set them free, surely the least you can do is provide for your own funeral expenses? What has love got to do with it, everything!
