What is Life Insurance?
Life insurance is a legal contract between the policyholder and the life insurance company. It’s similar to most forms of insurance in that you pay a set amount in return for a pre-determined benefit. A premium/lump sum of money is the death benefit your beneficiaries receive with your life insurance policy. You list a beneficiary or beneficiaries as the recipients of the premium when you pass away.
I’m a widower in my sixties. Should I invest in life insurance?
Perhaps. Life insurance may still be a good investment even if you are older. Life insurance can pay for your burial as well as other final expenses. It may be a good investment for these simple reasons. Furthermore, life insurance can also take care of a spouse, offspring, a mortgage, and any financial obligations. It can also take care of living expenses and medical expenses. If you’re an older person who still has significant financial obligations, life insurance may still be a wise investment. However, if you’re over sixty years old, term life insurance is probably a better investment than whole life insurance because it provides coverage for a set period. Also, it’s usually less expensive than whole life insurance. If you have questions about life insurance, call us. We’d be happy to help you explore your options.
