Why is life insurance so important?

Life insurance isn’t fun to talk about, never mind think about, but it is very important. Here’s why:
Number one reason: If you have any bills or outstanding amounts owing, you owe it to your survivors to have it covered. This includes everything from funeral costs to mortgage payments and other outstanding bills that may not have been taken care of earlier.
Other good reason: Ensuring that your survivors and future survivors aren’t scrabbling to pay the bills or looking for a cheaper place to live because they can’t afford to live in your family home any longer.
Another good reason: Peace of mind.
The younger you are, the better your rate. If you have dependents and you don’t have life insurance, pick up the phone and get it sorted out - today!
