I Work for You

My goal is to make the the process fast, easy and effective. It’s all about helping you. That’s it. That’s what I do (sounds simple right).

LIFE INSURANCE POLICIES WITH LIVING BENEFITS
Did you know some life insurance policies come with “living benefits” too?
A critical illness benefit might pay you for a variety of health conditions (like cancer, heart attacks, strokes, etc.).
A chronic illness benefit might pay you if you are unable to perform 2 or more daily living skills (like walking, bathing, eating, etc.).
A terminal illness benefit might pay you if you are not expected to live more than a certain period of time (usually 24 months or less) so you can enjoy what time you have left.
These are just some of the living benefits that can add great value to your life insurance policy, and I am happy to discuss them in more detail with you when we talk.
