The majority of Americans (66%*) agree that the pandemic has made them better understand the value of life insurance.
Life insurance is a different type of financial product - one you purchase for loved ones to provide peace of mind when they need it most. That has come into greater focus this year during a global pandemic and economic downturn. Now is a great time to review your life insurance policy to ensure you understand your coverage and benefits and confirm the coverage is still meeting your needs.
