Life insurance protects your family

When you are buying life insurance, make sure you know what type it is and how the policy is structured. What is the difference between term and whole life?

Term insurance ends at term. If you outlive the end of term insurance, all the premium you paid for the last 10 or 20 years is gone. It does not build cash value. You do not receive premium paid in.  It does not renew. You must go through the application process again.  This time 10 or 20 years older and at higher premium. One of the deciding factors of premium is age. The older you are the higher the premium. If you outlive your term insurance even 1 month past when the term is up, too bad. If you don't have another policy in place, then you have no life insurance to cover funeral expenses and other death related expenses. The financial burden will placed upon family members left behind.

The final expense programs Monumental Life offers are guaranteed that premium will never change and will provide funds to your survivors when they need it most as long as premiums are up to date. Monumental Life offers whole life policies. Whole life policies build cash value and outlive you. At the time of your death, the policy comes alive and provides the monies necessary to cover funeral and other death related expenses. Additionally, whole life policies offer living benefits.

Beware of programs that have a decreasing death benefit. While premiums typically remain unchanged, the amount of coverage you leave your loved ones can be drastically reduced. The final expense programs Monumental Life offers have guaranteed death benefit that will never decrease.

Beware of companies that have association fees. They will market guaranteed premium programs disguised with other fees. The life insurance premium rate is guaranteed but the association fees can increase at the company's discretion. The final expense programs offered by Monumental Life have no association fees. Therefore, the rates will never increase.

Does your current life insurance cover you for both accident and illness? If your death is caused by illness and your life insurance is accident only, your family will not collect the death benefit from that policy.

Monumental Life offers programs that cover both accident and illness. There is no waiting period and coverage begins after the first month's premium is collected. Death does not wait until you are ready. Be prepared and be completely covered. The application process is quick and easy. You are at your healthiest and youngest you will ever be. Now is the time to start the application process and financially protect your loved ones.
