These are just some basic explanations of terms used in insurance to educate visitors to my website. There are too many uses of life insurance and annuities to discuss here. This is one reason I don’t provide quotes on life and health insurance. This is different from property and casualty insurance where you ask for a quote. You’re buying insurance to protect your family not an object like a car or boat. You may want to call me for a quote on a term life policy but I won’t give it to you because it might not be the right product for you. I like to meet my clients personally and go over their individual financial situation and protection needs to best determine what they need and what they an afford. Based on this meeting, I’ll determine the most appropriate and affordable insurance product for your specific situation. The best suggestion I can give you is to setup an appointment with me to discuss your specific situation and insurance needs. Everyone is different and no two situations are alike. The notion that you should buy a $50,000 or $1,000,000 policy because that is what your neighbor did is not smart. Set up an appointment with me to discuss your personal situation in the privacy of your own home if you like. It costs you nothing but time and is time well spent to protect your loved ones and give you peace of mind. If you die tomorrow, will you have the peace of mind to know that you left your family taken care of. Watch the You Tube video at the bottom of this page. I urge you to contact me and schedule a free no obligation appointment to protect you and your loved ones before it is too late.
