"I think I have Some Life Insurance At Work...?"
- Bluestone Staff
- July 6, 2022
This is how many of our conversations with our customers begin. They vaguely remember that they have some kind of life insurance through work, but they don't know what it is or how much. If that's you, you're not alone.
The life insurance you have at work is called Group Life insurance. It is generally included as part of your benefits package and is valid as long as you work at your company. It is often one or two times your salary which is a good start, but may not be adequate protection.
How much coverage should you have? A recommended guideline is 10 to 15 times your income. That might sound like a lot until you think about what you want to protect. Here are a few questions to ask yourself:
- Do you have debts or loans that someone else could be responsible for if something happened to you?
- Are you planning on getting married or thinking about having a baby in the next few years? Getting life insurance before some of life’s big events may ensure that financial assets, liabilities and responsibilities are covered and not a burden.
- Are you in relatively good health today? Being young and healthy is a good time to buy life insurance as it gets more expensive as you age, and if a health issue develops in the future, you may not be able to get life insurance at all.
- Would you like to leave a legacy to nonprofits you care about? Life insurance can be a philanthropic tool as well. Bluestone Life offers a complimentary benefit that supports nonprofits in the 1% for the Planet network. You choose a nonprofit that you'd like to support with your life insurance.
Where do you begin? At Bluestone, we offer individual life insurance to help you close the gap between the amount you may have through work and how much coverage will better protect your family and give you peace of mind. And, we are not sales people. We are customer care activists working for your family, our community and the planet. With us, it starts with a conversation where we'll gather basic information so we can provide you with a quote and talk to you about the specific needs for you, your family and your lifestyle.
