Life

Life insurance is the foundation of most financial plans and can do everything from replacing the paycheck of the bread winner who dies too early or supplementing the income of the investor who lives a long time.

Depending on the need that is being covered by the life insurance policy, there are many products and ways to fund them. Paying down the mortgage, replacing family income, guaranteeing funds for a college education, providing money to continue a business, funding for retirement and creating liquidity in an estate are all common uses for life insurance. With such varied uses, it is no wonder that there are so many different products each designed to work best to fill certain needs.
