Life Insurance in the COVID Crisis: Protection You Need Now

Life as we know it has been upended by the COVID-19outbreak. Social distancing, practicing hyper-hygiene, stockpiling essentials and taking extra care to ensure our loved ones are safe and healthy have become our new normal for now. But taking safety measures alone is not always enough to protect your family against the potential financial ramifications of this or any unexpected event. You need to prepare for your and your family’s financial future.  Now is the time to consider life insurance.  If life insurance has been on your mind recently, you’re not alone. According to Forbes Magazine, record numbers of people are applying for life insurance in the wake of this virus, driven by panicked concern for their financial future.* 

But let’s put fear and panic aside. Life insurance can help offer your family financial stability and peace of mind, should the unexpected happen to you or a family member. It can help to:  

·     Replace income so your family can maintain the same standard of living if you or the primary breadwinner passes
·     Pay off debt to ease the financial strain on your family·     Fund a savings cushion or college education
·     Enjoy living benefits, such as cash value, that you can withdraw during your lifetime**
·     Ensure coverage that lasts your family’s lifetime 

However, getting the right type and the right amount of insurance may seem complicated, especially if you’re considering all the different kinds you may need. 

We have answers, and we’re standing by to help you.  

Although government mandates prevent us from meeting in person right now, our licensed agents at World Financial Group InsuranceAgency, Inc. and its subsidiaries (WFGIA) are available via phone call, video chat or email to help match you with the policy that you and your family need for today and beyond.  

And if you’re already covered by a life insurance policy, you can ensure that the coverage you have still meets your needs, but it’s also the time to make sure your beneficiaries are up to date. Updating your beneficiaries is necessary to ensure your wishes are met and requires only a quick review. Most people set their beneficiaries when they purchase their policy but forget to update as life changes. 

Whether you’re a first-time applicant or an existing policyholder, we’ve ensured the application and review process is quarantine friendly. From the comfort of your home, you can apply for life insurance without a medical exam visit, if you are in good health, and submit your application or policy updates electronically. We’ll walk you through each step of the way.  

While no one can predict what crisis you may face next in life, you can be ready for it financially. We care about your future.Let our agents at WFGIA help guide you and your family to financial safety. 

We look forward to serving you today and always.

Life Insurance in the COVID Crisis: Protection You Need Now

Life as we know it has been upended by the COVID-19 outbreak. Social distancing, practicing hyper-hygiene and stockpiling essentials have become our new normal for now — which proves that when a crisis hits, nothing is more important than protecting our loved ones and ourselves.

But taking safety measures alone is not always enough to protect your family against the potential financial ramifications of this or any unexpected event. You need a solid plan to insure your and your family’s financial future.

Now is the time to have life insurance.

If life insurance has been on your mind recently, you’re not alone. According to Forbes Magazine, record numbers of people are applying for life insurance in the wake of this virus, driven by panicked concern for their financial future.1

Panic aside, getting coverage just makes sense. Life insurance can help offer your family financial stability and peace of mind, should the unexpected happen to you or a family member. It can help to:

  • Replace income so your family can maintain the same standard of living if you or the primary breadwinner passes
  • Pay off debt to ease the financial strain on your family
  • Fund a savings cushion, college education or investment account
  • Enjoy living benefits, such as cash value, that you can withdraw during your lifetime 2
  • Ensure coverage that lasts your family’s lifetime

However, getting the right type and the right amount of insurance may seem complicated, especially if you’re considering all the different kinds you may need.
