Why Work With A Local Agent?
The internet has made shopping for insurance easier. These days you can compare rates, and benefits, and even apply online. Some insurance companies let you apply right from their website.
On top of that, there are TV ads bombarding us with Medicare free-bees presented by over-the-hill quarterbacks.
Does it still make sense to have a local agent help you choose a plan?
You bet it does.
Now more than ever!
Agents are insurance experts. It’s their job to help you shop plans from leading carriers so you can be confident you’ve found the best rates and benefits for you.
Four Reasons To Work With An Insurance Agent –
• It’s free! Agents collect payment from the companies they represent. So you get all the advice you want absolutely free.
• Agents guide you through the process. Buying an insurance policy can be complicated. An agent walks you through each step of the process and helps you make sense of all the insurance lingo.
• Agents offer you a choice. Your agent has a portfolio of plans to choose from, often from multiple companies. Your agent will know which policy will protect you the best.
• Agents troubleshoot mistakes. A mistake on your application can cause a company to raise your rates or even reject your application. Your agent will help you correctly fill out your application so you get the rates you deserve.
When you consider all the benefits, working with an agent just makes good sense.

What is Life Insurance?
Life insurance is a contract between you and an insurance company and is a way to protect your family in case of your death by providing funds to pay outstanding bills, taxes, and income loss. Under a Term Life contract, the insurance company promises to pay your beneficiaries a sum of money in the event that you die within a period of time defined in the contract (such as 5, 10, 15, 20 or 30 years). Under a Permanent Life contract, a portion of the money you pay in premiums is invested in a fund that earns interest on a tax-deferred basis. Over time, your policy will accumulate a “cash value” that you can use.
For instance, you can borrow against the value of your policy. Moreover, you can design a Permanent Life contract that will accumulate enough cash so as to be “paid up” by a certain age (e.g., “Paid-Up Age 65”). Your need for life insurance can change over a lifetime. At any age, you should consider your individual circumstances and the standard of living you wish to maintain for your dependents. In most cases, you need life insurance only if someone depends on you for support. Your life insurance premium is based on the type of insurance you buy, the amount you buy, and your chance of death while the policy is in effect.
