What is whole life insurance?

00:05:10 - 00:08:02
It's a very important way that you could help protect

00:08:02 - 00:10:01
your family's financial future.

00:10:03 - 00:13:03
Whole life insurance is designed to financially help

00:13:03 - 00:15:17
your loved ones if something happens to you.

00:15:17 - 00:18:21
It's coverage designed for your whole life.

00:18:22 - 00:20:08
Think about this.

00:20:08 - 00:23:13
You know your family depends on you for so many things.

00:23:15 - 00:26:08
And you try to provide for them, take care of them,

00:26:10 - 00:27:19
and to help protect them.

00:27:19 - 00:30:01
But what if something happens to you?

00:30:03 - 00:34:03
What happens to bills and expenses and plans for their future?

00:34:05 - 00:38:02
This is where whole life insurance could help make a big difference.

00:38:02 - 00:41:04
By providing financial help through difficult times.

00:41:08 - 00:44:06
Whole life insurance is designed to provide coverage

00:44:06 - 00:45:19
for your entire life

00:45:19 - 00:48:11
with premium costs that don't increase as you age

00:48:11 - 00:50:09
even if you get sick.

00:50:11 - 00:53:09
And your coverage amount won't go down as you get older,

00:53:09 - 00:55:07
as long as you pay your monthly bill,

00:55:07 - 00:58:13
your policy can build cash value over the years.

00:58:13 - 01:01:08
So if you need a cash payout or loan from the plan,

01:01:13 - 01:04:08
it could be there for you during your lifetime.

01:04:10 - 01:08:07
Whole life policies may also have some great tax benefits.

01:08:09 - 01:11:17
Isn't it always a good time to plan for your family's future?

01:11:19 - 01:14:12
And have financial coverage to help cover things

01:14:12 - 01:18:00
like funeral expenses and medical bills at the end of life.

01:18:02 - 01:23:00
