Life Insurance can provide peace of mind for those who want to plan ahead to meet future financial needs.
Life insurers provide products which protect against the financial risk of premature death, the possibility of outliving your assets in retirement, the loss of income due to a disability, and the high costs of long-term care.
The resources on this page can serve as an introduction to these basic insurance products.
We have also provided links to national organizations which can provide additional information on life insurance products as well as a variety of other insurance topics.
