The month of May we celebrate Moms. Give Mom the greatest gift of all. It does not have to be a traditional one like flowers. A life insurance policy can be a unique and meaningful present, and helpful in ensuring that your family will be financially protected. I suggest that you consider buying life insurance for anyone who brings exceptional value to your family.
Who may need Life Insurance?
Working Moms: The impact of working mothers has changed dramatically over the past few decades, with 40% of mothers as the primary or sole earners. 70% of moms are in the work force, with 75% of them working full-time. Unfortunately, if something happens to mom, this could cause extreme financial strain to family.
Stay-At-Home Moms: A stay-at-home mom works many jobs. She’s a nurse, chauffeur, chef, teacher, playmate, housekeeper, laundry attendant, accountant and babysitter. Although she doesn’t receive a paycheck, according to Salary.com, a stay at home mom would earn $143,1002 a year for all of the jobs she performs. She is the perfect candidate for Life Insurance. If something were to happen to her, there is the financial burden of paying for childcare, housecleaning, etc.
Single Moms: Single moms face many challenges. She parents alone, sometimes without the other parent’s support, and is responsible for all financial, material, and emotional needs. Many single moms rely on a sole income to support themselves and their children. Regrettably single parents are one the largest sectors to not own life insurance. This is unfortunate, because they are the ones that need life insurance the most. According to a LIMRA study, 55% of single-mother households said their families would be in immediate financial trouble if the primary wage earner died, compared with 35% of all U.S. households.
Grandmas: Many families rely on Grandma to help with childcare. If Grandma is watching your children while you and your spouse work, she is providing a value to the family that is financially significant. If something should happen to her, they would have to end up paying for child care, which is very expensive and could be put in a financial strain. Show her she’s a valued part of your family, and discuss a life insurance policy for her.
Dads: Give your wife the gift of buying yourself a life insurance policy. When you’re a father, life insurance is one of many important ways to help provide for your family and show how you love them. Use this holiday to show your wife that you want to help ensure her future, and the future of your kids, from the uncertain.
