Fool’s Gold-What your employer did not tell you.

Many people think that their employer is supposed to provide ALL their family’s benefits, including life insurance coverage for the employee, and maybe even life insurance coverage for the spouse and kids.

Here are some TRUTHS behind group life coverage thru work:

You don’t own it.  The company you work for owns it.

You don’t control it.  Has an employer ever changed their benefits plan? Did they consult you first?

You don’t get to take it with you. Will you work at this job forever?

Insurance Tip: Sit down with an agent and figure out the exact amount your need to cover your family correctly.  This is YOUR responsibility NOT your employer’s. Make sure you cover 10-12 times your income OR 5 times your income + paying all your debts.

As always if you would like to review all your options call or email and we can talk over the phone or set up a face to face meeting.  We are here for you!
