Consider carefully the quoted words of Ex UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill - the words remain as true today as the day they were spoken
If I had my way I would write the word 'Insure' upon the door of every cottage and upon the blotting book of every public man, because I am convinced that for sacrifices which are inconceivably small, families and estates can be protected against catastrophes which would otherwise smash them up forever."
It is our duty to arrest the ghastly waste, not merely of human happiness but of national health and strength, which follows when, through the death of the breadwinner, the frail boat in which the family are embarked, flounders, and women and children and estates are left to struggle in the dark waters of a friendless world
It is about meeting responsibilities and keeping promises.
If you own life insurance and a correctly drafted Will , it is because you view it from your family's point of view, not your own. You see life insurance as a tool that protects your spouse and children from the potentially devastating financial losses that can result if you die prematurely.
It has nothing to do with you.
You know that, should anything happen to you, the life insurance you have purchased is in place to protect and provide financial relief for those who must carry on without you. It's about them.
Should you die, the proceeds will help you keep the promises you have made to those people you care about.
Too often, when an income earner dies, survivors are forced to make tough, dramatic decisions -- and to do so quickly - at a time when they may not be emotionally in a position to make good choices.
Life insurance buys time and buys options.
It gives them a chance to adjust over time rather than need to look right away for a downsized home or new job.
Your life insurance gives your family choices by providing the benefits to help pay off debts; to help meet housing payments and ongoing living expenses; to help fund college educations for your children or grandchildren; and more.
Your policy is a valuable piece of property that can deliver a specified sum of money at the exact time it is needed most.
Upon your death, your family can be assured that the amount you have chosen - perhaps hundreds of thousands of dollars; maybe even millions -- will be there almost immediately.
And that money is generally not subject to taxes. A $500,000 policy provides $500,000 in death benefit proceeds.
