You may have had life insurance for as long as you can remember. You knew it was important to make sure that your family would be taken care of and be able to pay their bills if anything happened to you.
But now that you’re over 60, your children are grown, and your mortgage is paid off, you may feel you don’t need life insurance anymore. However, there are some circumstances under which it may still make sense for you to have life insurance:
• You still have substantial debt.
• You have dependent children or grandchildren.
• You want to be able to leave a financial legacy.
No business owner likes to think about handing over their business they’ve built from the ground up. But the fact of the matter is, you will have to do it eventually.

• Meeting with your insurance agent
• Reviewing your insurance options
• Purchasing insurance
• Filing a claim (when necessary)
An insurance agent can help you understand your policy covers, how much your deductible will be, and all the steps involved in filing a claim.
