Did you know this about life insurance?

See also

Life insurance is a dynamic financial vehicle but most people only refer to it as death insurance. Yes, if you have a policy and you’ve been paying your premiums and you pass away, a sum of money will be paid out. Who or what gets that sum of money is totally up to you.

Many of you reading this might not have known this but people actually use life insurance while they’re alive. Did you know that life insurance can be used to fund a child’s education? Did you know that people utilize life insurance to supplement their retirement income? Did you know that if you borrowed against (taking a loan) your life insurance policy, that in some cases you don’t have to pay the loan back? Life insurance is phenomenal tool but it gets such a bad reputation, however there are so many ways that people can use life insurance while they’re alive. It's one of the most flexible products that exist, but most people don't take the time to educate themselves properly.

If you didn't about those awesome things that life insurance can do (and that was only an appetizer), perhaps you should schedule an appointment with an insurance agent and let them explain it to you.
