While there are many uses for life insurance, one of the most common is to replace the loss of income that would occur in the event of your death. When your paychecks or other benefits cease, proceeds from a life insurance policy can help keep your loved ones financially protected and secure. BSNB Financial Services* is here to help you evaluate your need for coverage and to guide you if you are considering investing in life insurance.

What is life insurance? 

Life insurance is an agreement between you and an insurer. You pay premium payments to the insurer and in exchange, the insurer promises to pay a certain sum to your beneficiary upon your death based on the terms of your policy.  At a time when resources may be limited, proceeds of the policy can help your family supplement their living expenses or pay off any debt you leave behind.    

How much life insurance do I need? 

Our Infinex Financial Consultant can help you consider a number of factors that influence life insurance needs, including whether or not you are married, the size of your family, and your financial picture.  As your needs change over time, we can also help you re-evaluate your coverage needs.     

What are the benefits of life insurance?

The two basic types of life insurance are term life plans and permanent life, or whole life, plans.  Our Infinex Financial Consultant can help answer your questions and provide guidance given your specific situation.  

Term Plans

  • Provides coverage for a fixed period of time
  • Most affordable coverage initially
  • No cash value accumulated

Whole Life Plans

  • Premiums are higher initially but never go up
  • Accumulate cash value which grows tax deferred
  • May be able to borrow against your cash value for personal use
