Life Insurance

Life Insurance Explained

Obtaining good life insurance for you and your loved ones gives you the ability to pass on wealth to others should you pass away. This kind of coverage can be put to use for almost any purpose and, oftentimes, the money is even tax-free.

What Is It?

Life insurance coverage is obtained for an individual or for a group, like a whole family. If one or more policyholders die, a specified amount of funds is then released and provided to the named beneficiary or beneficiaries.

Who Benefits

Anyone can purchase this kind of insurance for themselves or for their family members. A business can also obtain policy coverage to protect itself if an important key leader, or “keyman”, should pass away. This is protection to ensure that the business would go on regardless of such a loss and any inherent consequences due to said loss.

How It Operates

Insurance that is bought on the life of an individual is purchased for a specified amount. For example, two spouses may purchase a $50,000 policy on each other, and then the requisite monthly payments are made. Should one or the other spouse die, the payout of $50,000 goes to the surviving spouse.

Different Kinds of Coverage Available

There is a myriad of types of coverage available. Some will have an accumulation of funding via their interest rates, while others might have separate but connected accounts to build value on the policy. The following are the most common kinds of coverage:

  • Whole life is a popular type of comprehensive life insurance coverage. Policyholders pay their premiums, which are determined from a litany of health questions and the amount of coverage desired. Assuming the policyholder pays his or her premiums on time, the policy remains intact and coverage is in effect.
  • Another popular option is term insurance. Term insurance, conversely, provides similar coverage but for only a set period of time. For example, should you have a 15-year term insurance policy, you will be covered for 15 years. However, after that period ends, you must purchase new coverage.
  • Universal life offers similar coverage as whole life. However, there is also the option of investing some of the premiums. This sometimes can notably increase the benefit amount should the investment strategy turn out well.

Big benefits

Life insurance is often an excellent method for providing for your family if a breadwinner should pass away unexpectedly. This coverage can assist in covering the expense of medical bills, a funeral, living expenses while the children are still at home, to help pay off debt, and to even leave an inheritance.

In today’s financial environment, it’s important to know that there are some things you don’t have to worry about. Life insurance can be the foundation of financial security for you and your family. It can be the base upon which other insurance and investment decisions are built.

I just want to know, WHO BOUGHT THE CAKE? This place sure takes it. In all my years of buying insurance, I have never had a agent renew a policy with more coverage at less price. That is unheard of. That you Joe. I will definitely refer you to all my family and friends. Did you ever meet my brother John?

Joe is really helpful and looks out for our best interests! I especially recommend him for Expats as he takes the time to explain the details well for people who are also not so familiar with US or Michigan insurances.

John has ALWAYS been transparent and honest to a fault. He never pushed me to sign up for coverage, he gave me the numbers for what I asked for and let me decide. He gave me options not problems. It is rare for me to go out of my way to do reviews as I don't have time. That is how much trust I have with A. Young Insurance! You won't be disappointed.

Things had changed and I knew I was being overcharged for car insurance. Obtained a few quotes but still wasn't happy with the results. SO glad I contacted A. Young, Joe is awesome to work with, made the switch painlessly easy and... are you sitting down? My new rate is HALF what I was paying. HALF!!! So delighted!

John was extremely helpful and down to earth. With me being clueless with anything to do with business insurance, he took the time to explain exactly what I needed and DIDN'T need for my business. John also made the entire process effortless and painless for me.
