What exactly is Life Insurance? In it’s most simplistic form, life insurance is a contract between two parties, the insured (a person) and the insurer (a company) that states the the insurer promises to pay a sum or beneficiary to the heirs of the insured upon their death in return for an investment amount either paid in lump sums or over time as a monthly, quarterly or yearly premium.
Having a local Nashville Life Insurance agent is important. It gives you someone you know that you can pick up a phone and call if you ever have any questions or concerns about your policy or contract. It is also someone who will personally deliver the check to your loved ones on your behalf and walk them through the process as you intended.
The truth is, the value of life insurance does not come into play during your lifetime. However, it has an enormous effect on those left behind. The insured has the peace of mind knowing the financial hardship of funeral costs and loss of income has been reduced by the payment delivered to the beneficiary. Most people think the only people that benefit from a life insurance policy are family members but that’s not true. There are many uses for this kind of policy for companies that have employees that are key to their survival, have partnerships and other business arrangements that need protection on the death of a person in the organization.
While it may seem easier and less expensive to go online and find the lowest cost for life insurance there are some things you need to know. One is the strength of the company that issues the policy. If they are not rated well your loved ones may never receive the benefits agreed upon and you well earned money is gone. Another that only sitting down with a licensed life insurance agent can prevent is the amount of coverage you need to accomplish those things you will not be around to see completed; sending your kids to college or making sure your spouse has enough money that he or she can stay home and care for younger children and many more. The third is going over the policy with you to insure it is right for your situation. Remember, your policy is a contract and like all contracts, they should be read and understood before signing.
