Celebrate Life Insurance Awareness Month by educating your employees on the many benefits of life insurance.
Life insurance isn’t simple; there are many elements that must be examined carefully in order to get the right type of insurance and the right amount of coverage. It is important as an employer to provide your employee with peace of mind and the best options for insurance.
There seem to be a lot of misconceptions about how life insurance works, so during this month is the perfect time to talk about these things and clear them up for good to better help your employees, and in turn better help your business.
Let’s start by talking about some of the common situations you may be faced with:
- “I’m single with no kids, I don’t really need life insurance.”
- “It’s better to invest money than to buy any sort of life insurance.”
- “The breadwinner of the family is the only one who really needs life insurance.”
Many would like to believe this to be true, but it’s not necessarily the best way to go about it. Even though we have medical benefits, there may be something that isn’t covered – so singles need enough to cover their personal debts, funeral costs, and medical fees. If you don’t have insurance, you may leave your family with unpaid expenses. If you have insurance, you may be able to leave any of your remaining money to a cause that you believe in, or to your family.
With investment there is always risk, so there is no way of really knowing how investing will work out for you. You might want to do a combination of investment and insurance – this way you are able to have the best of both worlds.
The cost to replace the services that were provided by the deceased homemaker can be much higher than you would think. Cleaning, cooking, day care; these costs add up quite quickly and so does the time it takes to do all of these tasks. The primary breadwinner, the secondary breadwinner or homemaker should both have coverage to ensure that both parties are protected if the other was to pass away.
