Life Insurance:

Life insurance is one of the most effective ways to protect your family's lifestyle and future from sudden upheaval due to an unforeseen event. Why buy insurance? The reasons to buy insurance are different for everyone. At its core, the decision to purchase insurance is all about providing financial security for yourself and the ones you care about. The first step is to determine your goals, how much insurance you need to meet your goals over time, and what you can afford to pay. As a financial advisor I can help you with all aspects of this process. Next we look into what types of insurance can be used to meet your needs. After considering initial premium payments we look to other factors such as  any possible increases in premium over time, any additional death benefits, and any living benefits that can be utilized before you die.  From there I am able to advise you on the type of insurance policy (or combination of types) that best meets your needs. Some common examples of Life insurance are:

Common Types of Life Insurance

Whole Life:

Life insurance can be more than just a way to protect your family. It can also be a way to grow and protect your long-term wealth. Whole life is permanent life insurance, designed for the long-term, with steady cash value growth. Whole life can be a versatile tool to help meet several needs. The death benefit provides cash to your beneficiaries when you pass away, plus you get potentially tax-free access to your cash value while you’re alive. This is cash that can be used to help you fund college education, assist in a down payment for a home, supplement retirement income, or help pay for anything else you need

Universal Life:

Universal Life can be a cost-effective way to give your family the long-term financial security they need. Universal life offers a combination of long-term coverage and the ability to accumulate cash value with interest. However, because interest rate changes may affect your cash value accumulation, and consequently the premiums you need to pay over time, you need to monitor a universal life policy closely

Variable Universal Life:

As your financial needs change, you may want the freedom and flexibility to choose from a variety of investment options. Variable universal life policies provide death benefit protection and are long-term investment vehicles offering the potential for cash value accumulation—and you can adjust how premiums and cash value are allocated across a variety of investment options.

Linked-benefit Products: (Universal life with long-term care insurance benefits)

For those seeking to protect themselves from a long-term care event, a product that combines life insurance with long-term care insurance protection may help address your needs. A linked-benefit product provides multiple benefits in one product. By combining life insurance and long-term care insurance, the product provides a death benefit, or allows policy owners to use the death benefit for qualified long term care expenses. There is even an additional long term care benefit once the death benefit is exhausted for long term care. The product also provides a return of premium benefit for policy owners that terminate their coverage.

Long-Term Care Insurance:

Going through life may require a little help along the way. While life insurance is there to protect your loved ones, it is important to remember sometimes we need a little help too. Long-Term Care insurance can be an effective way to help mitigate the rising cost of covering a long-term care event. Long-Term Care coverage reimburses certain expenses that are needed to perform basic daily activities such as bathing and dressing as a result of a chronic health condition or cognitive impairment. This includes services provided in your home or a facility. The cost of these services are generally not covered by private health insurance or government programs.  So if you're planning ahead, long-term care insurance may help protect you or a family member's future plans and help preserve the assets you've worked so hard to build. The cost of an in-home nurse, or living in a facility can be very expensive. This can lead to a lifetime of savings quickly disappearing to care for you during the final years of your life, or during a long recovery process.
