September is here, bringing with it the hectic first days of school and, for many of us, a return to a more structured routine. This time of year also marks Life Insurance Awareness Month—a reminder to consider whether your family is adequately protected should an unforeseen tragedy occur.

No one likes to think about their own mortality, but if you have financial dependents, you need to make sure they’ll be taken care of should you pass away unexpectedly. The best way to protect your family’s financial security is to obtain a life insurance policy. By doing so, you and your loved ones will have peace of mind knowing that proceeds from your policy can be used to:

  • Cover funeral and medical costs
  • Help pay bills and ongoing living expenses
  • Pay outstanding debts such as credit cards or your mortgage
  • Ensure that a family business remains viable
  • Finance education for children
  • Provide a spouse with an enjoyable and comfortable retirement

One of the most common misconceptions about life insurance is that it’s expensive. While the actual cost of a life insurance policy depends on several personal factors, if you’re relatively young and healthy, you may be surprised at how affordable life insurance can be. Our insurance professionals can help you determine how much life insurance coverage you need and provide you with affordable coverage options.

Put a life insurance review on your calendar this September. It doesn’t take long to evaluate the life insurance needs of your family and to make sure that your loved ones will be financially secure no matter what the future holds. Once you have a life insurance policy in place, you’ll be able to focus on enjoying these beautiful fall days with those closest to you.

Life Happens Campaign

There’s a growing crisis of underinsurance – too many Americans without adequate life insurance. According to the 2015 Insurance Barometer Stud of Life Happens and LIMRA, more than 40% of Americans have no life insurance. That’s why Kemner Iott Benz is partnering with Life Happens to bring awareness to this issue, educate Americans about the importance of life insurance, and help you get the coverage you need.
