I can still clearly remember many years ago that whenever some insurance agent approaches me and starts talking about getting myself a life insurance policy, I am starting to imagine dragging that man up to the topmost floor of the building, put his head inside a trash can and shove him out of the window and watch him fall down with grace. Well, you see, I considered people like this to be nuisances and in my mind, I always thought that they are just here for the money. Well, they are and it would be hypocrisy on their part if they say they are not in it for the money.
But, when I finished college, found worked and married my love of my life for a decade and our love bore a beautiful daughter, I started to think about my future and I also started to think about those life insurance agents that I imagined pushing them out of that window. Now, I don’t think of them as life insurance agents but as financial analysts and they are actually there to help you out with your future, my future and my family’s future, too.
Last year, I found myself scanning through the internet pages looking for a life insurance company near our place and even try to find the best rates for life insurance. I haven’t got any idea how much a life insurance policy could cost until I have cleared out some things regarding everything about life insurance policy. I have found one life insurance company and I felt lucky it was the one that I’ve chosen when I planned to buy life insurance.
I have learned that you are not actually throwing out money when you buy life insurance. It is just like depositing money to the bank but the returns are enormous. Another thing that I’ve learned about life insurance is it is way better than depositing money in your bank account because even if you have just made your first monthly premium payment today and next week, something happens to you, the declared insured money written on your life insurance policy contract will be given to your bereaved family and all of the unpaid future balances will be fully waived.
It is also interesting to know that the rates of a life insurance policy are based on the age of the would-be policy holder, his medical status as well as the age of his beneficiary. Since my daughter is still around a month old when I bought that life insurance, my premium payments are way very cheap or are very friendly on my pocket. Additionally, it was even cheaper because I’m kind of a health-conscious guy and I haven’t got any of those underlying diseases like diabetes, asthma, hypertension or the like. That means to say that if a person who is fit and healthy and is still young will buy life insurance, he can have the best offer.
When I bought a life insurance policy not too long ago, because I can have cheaper premium payments, I insured myself for $50,000 and if something happens to me anytime, either I’ll go down for good because of an accident or a disease, I’m sure that my family will still have a brighter and richer future ahead of them. But, of course, at the end of the paying period and I’m still alive, I can have the option to get the money through one-time payment from the life insurance company or through monthly or quarterly payments or even yearly payments, that is, if that’s what I want.
