5 Things You Never Knew About Standard Life Insurance

Standard Life Insurance in Edmonton from Vistaplan Financial Group

Many people in Edmonton don't get a standard life insurance policy because they believe they are unable to afford it or think their work policies are enough. The truth is, most people can't afford to not to have coverage, but because of how complex it seems, they are unprotected and in the event of their death, their families are financially devastated. If you find yourself wondering whether or not to get life insurance, here are five things you never knew about standard life insurance that can help you make your decision.

Life Insurance Isn't Only for Wealthy People

Standard life insurance in Edmonton comes with a premium that must be made for coverage so many people think it's only for the wealthy. Life insurance is actually a near necessity for anyone who has people relying on them financially. People who are independently wealthy may use life insurance as part of their wealth management, but generally speaking, standard life insurance is for people who have financial obligations that will have to be paid by those left behind that really need it. Some of these financial dependents may include:

  • Your spouse
  • Your children
  • Business partner
  • A dependent sibling
  • An ex-spouse

Standard Life Insurance Isn't Meant to Replace You

No amount of money can make up for the loss of a loved one and that isn't what life insurance is about. Standard life insurance is designed to cover the costs of final expenses, outstanding debt, mortgages and any other financial commitments that must be handled despite the loss. While people are suffering the loss of a loved one, the added pressure of meeting financial obligations is something life insurance can ease for them.

It's Not as Expensive as You Think

There are wealth-building policies that come with monthly premiums that can seem overwhelming, but coverage to protect your loved ones doesn't have to break the bank. The younger you are and the better health you are in when you apply, the cheaper your policy will be. There are also reasonable alternatives for people who are only interested in protecting their loved ones.

It's Not as Complicated as it Seems
