Life Insurance………………..WHY NOT?
The thought of purchasing life insurance for a child can create an uncomfortable feeling. No one wants to think about such devastation, however, a life insurance policy can also be utilized to help build up cash value that can be accessed in the future. You can help your child pay of education debt, help pay for a wedding or even their first home.
There is no clear answer if purchasing a life insurance policy for your child is right for you but educate yourself to make the best possible decision on behalf of your children. A few things to consider;
- If your child develops a chronic disease, it could leave them ineligible later in life to purchase a policy when they need it the most. If you purchase a policy with a cash value feature you can borrow money from your policy when it is needed.
If you’re considering a savings account for your child why not a permanent life insurance policy (cash value). You can access it at any time after the initial three to five years, with no tax implications.
So, let’s talk facts;
Why it’s a good idea to purchase permanent life insurance!
Protection from Tragic death, Funeral expenses, family counseling, and medical bills and let’s not forget when the parents need to take a leave of absence from work.
Savings and Insurability are the easy things to remember and talk about. The things that are difficult are just as important if not more important!
- Fees……………..Really? How can you even put a price tag on it!
- Most children don’t die………………Really? That’s just what we want to believe…..aren’t we always telling teenagers they are NOT invincible! We Parents need to practice what we preach!
- I don’t want to benefit from my child’s death……………………Really! No ONE benefits from a death but someone sure has to step up when it happens!

My first post!
WHO I am and WHY I do what I do….
I would say that I am an insurance agent, and business owner, but, I feel that I am so much more than that. Like many of you, I’m a parent, a family member, and a friend. I work at balancing home and work life and am happy to report that most of the time, feel like I’m rocking it!
I purchased The Insurance Agency of Cape Cod Inc. in 2006. I wanted to encompass my talents with a desire to provide the best possible customer service at my own agency. I wanted to create something that separated my agency from the rest. I feel that I have done this. How, you may ask? I have created an environment that is both large enough to offer the insurance products that any customer may need but with the feel and warmth of on office that is small enough to know who you are.
We have a family atmosphere that allows our customers the comfort of knowing we are just a phone call away and that we will be there for them when they need us!
So call me…..“Lets Talk Insurance”!
