Life Insurance Myths

There are a lot of “do” this and “don’t” do that when it comes to life insurance, but here are some common myths that need to be debunked when it comes to life insurance.

MYTH: Lowering my premium means poor quality

Saving yourself money does not mean your life insurance policy is poor! By simply removing items that no longer serve or apply to you, can save you money.

MYTH: All life insurance is the same

You and your family have different needs to the family next door, so your life insurance should match that and not someone else’s needs. What you want is fully underwritten life insurance that is tailor-made for you and ensures there are no unnecessary delays or surprises at claim time. You are assessed up front in your application process by asking questions about your health, lifestyle and more.

MYTH: You can set and forget your life insurance policy

What was good for you when you first took out your policy may no longer be good for you now. Did you quit smoking? Did you decrease your mortgage? If you made any positive life changes, your premium could change in your benefit. Review your policy and make sure it still serves what you need.

There are the 3 most common life insurance myths: BUSTED!

Don’t you think it’s time to review your policy and make sure it has everything you still need today and for the future!

Joseph from NSW commented:

I am retired, have no mortgage or other debts, my children are grown up and we have prepaid our funerals. Other than to leave my kids some extra money once we die what good reason is there for us to have life insurance? Additionally, which insurance company is going to provide life insurance for someone nearing 70 with reasonable premium cost.
