james lopez 10/4/12 The idea of using life insurance to solve financial problems after death is almost as old as the hills. People have a tendency to approach this in a manner that can be described as too casual at times. Sometimes sufficient thought is not given to the impact on the family if the breadwinner, or breadwinners, do not own sufficient life coverage to replace their incomes after death. It may be that people are so afraid of death that they develop some type of mental block. The amazing thing is that I see so many intelligent people who don't want to think about buying insurance. Quotes I have spent over 40 years in this business and I have seen families in pure panic after the death of their father and husband. On the other hand I have seen a wife bury her husband with such dignity and an open expression of love and respect for him that there are no words to sufficiently describe it. He left his wife and his children financially secure for the rest of their lives. They could continue living in the same house. The children could continue going to the same school, they could continue their same extra curricular activities, they continued wearing nice clothing. Money was available for college... All of these things guaranteed because the husband and father took the time to prepare for death. There was sufficient income for the wife he loved so deeply to live out her days very comfortably. The policy didn't replace the husband but it kind of made him immortal in a way. All this may sound like a fairy tale to many but ask any insurance agent who has been in this business for many years. Sometimes the beauty of the thing brings you to tears. How can the average person do the same for their families. You first must decide how much insurance you need ...then start off with term insurance.The reason I recommend this is not that I have any great bias
