Coming to you with a Finance Friday topic - Life Insurance. For those of you who don't know, September is Life Insurance Awareness Month. 2012 marks the 9th Anniversary of Life Insurance Awareness Month and what the celebration does is raise awareness to the world about the need for Life Insurance.
Now more than ever, it is vital that consumers protect their financial security. Life Insurance has been providing this kind of protection to Americans for more than 200 years! I'm not sure if anyone has experienced this, but within the last year I suffered the loss of a relative and our family experienced something I have never experienced before in my life and I have encountered death and attended more funerals in my life than care to remember.
My relative passed away very unexpectedly and was uninsured. That left the family in a horrible place trying to collect funds in order to provide a worthwhile Home Going Ceremony for our loved one.
Speaking from a painful experience, I have to share with those unknowing it is extremely imperative that you obtain some form of Life Insurance. The last thing that you want to think of while grieving is how to come up with money that no one has. I understand with these trying economic times, families have re-designed their budgets to try and eliminate every unnecessary expense they can think of. Well, I'm here to tell you, YOU CAN NOT AFFORD TO ELIMINATE Life Insurance from your monthly budget!!
