As soon as my husband and I moved across Pennsylvania and bought our first home, we signed up with Erie life insurance and have never looked back! One of the smartest decisions we’ve ever made, and never more so than when we started having children…but why? Why do parents need to get life insurance? Why is it so important?
So many bits of life are uncertain and ever-changing, so adding security to your gig makes so much sense. In the past twenty years of our life together, my husband and I have moved, bought two homes, gone to school, welcomed two children into the world, adopted three rescue dogs, and changed jobs more times than my fingers can count. In short? It’s been a life of change. And change is full of uncertainty. There’s not much we can do to guard against this uncertainty, but life insurance offers some security amidst the storm. For parents, it’s absolutely essential to get life insurance.
5 essential reasons parents need to get life insurance
- It’s more likely the family home can be kept if a loss of income is incurred.
- Your children’s future college goals can still be pursued.
- Burial and funeral costs can be expensive; life insurance can cover these expenses.
- The burden of switching to a single-earner income can be lessened for a surviving spouse.
- More peace of mind NOW before anything might happen. You can relax knowing your family is taken care of, regardless of what happens.
Despite life insurance being so valuable, it’s not always understood well. Check out the findings of this recent national survey. Erie Insurance conducted: it was found that many people are confused about life insurance, including how it works, what it covers, and how much costs. (Many people assumed it costs way more than it does!).
So talk with your insurance agent, who can walk you through how the various coverages work and help you determine the type and amount that’s right for you and your family.
