Why Should I Own Life Insurance Forever?
By: Amy Regenstreif, LTCP/CLTC/ Patient Advocate / Rare Cancer Survivor / Life Insurance Agent / Long Term Care Insurance Professional
As a Life Insurance Agent, one of my mentors told me that I would discover the importance of my work the day I delivered a check to a family. And that would be true. And then I think of the checks I can not deliver because they had no life insurance.
I can not deliver a check to the 80 year old woman who lost her husband. She had $400,000 in medical debt and now lives on just her social security.
I can not deliver a check to my friend in her 30’s whose husband had a heart attack on a tennis court and died. He left her with 2 young kids, a house, and much financial responsibility.
I can not deliver a check to the dad whose wife passed away from breast cancer and all he wants to do is stay at home with his kids for a year before he returns to work. He did not understand the monetary value of his stay at home wife. He does now, wanting to be a stay at home dad for a year….and then some.
What is the value of your lives and those around you both monetarily and emotionally should a death occur in your family?
This is the true meaning of life insurance. Sit down with an experienced professional and learn what your options are today. Then no matter what, you can really rest in peace knowing that those around you are cared for should you pass away unexpectedly or of old age.‘Amy Regenstreif has had an insurance practice for over 11 years in Southern California with New York Life Insurance Company.
