Life Insurance Awareness Month

Every September, Life Insurance Awareness Month promotes the importance of life insurance in financial planning.

Fifth Third Insurance proudly supports this initiative and invites you to discover which personal life insurance plan may be for you.

  • Life insurance is an important aspect of your family's financial future and should be addressed accordingly, but the lack of adequate coverage - or any coverage at all - is a growing issue for Americans. Only 62% of people carry life insurance, and of those, 50% say they need more coverage (LIMRA's Life Insurance Consumer Studies).
  • In fact, the recommended life insurance coverage is about $405,840, while the average amount actually owned is less than half of that (The Bureau of Business and Economic Research).

When is the last time you had your policy reviewed? The importance of a routine policy review is often overlooked, but our insurance professionals can meet with you to understand your insurance needs and help you determine what type of plan makes sense for your situation. Keep in mind that changes in your life, the economy, and insurance industry could affect your coverage needs.

Life-changing events that may affect your life insurance needs include:

  • Change in job status
  • Marriage, divorce, or death of a spouse
  • Birth or adoption of a child
  • Children "leaving the nest"
  • Purchasing a new home
  • Significant changes in assets or debts

A Fifth Third Insurance professional can help walk you through details on how to incorporate life insurance into your family's long-term financial strategy. We'll help you explore the possibilities and help choose a policy to fit your circumstances, so you can help protect those you love against uncertainties.

Since evaluating your personal insurance coverage, have you:

  1. Gotten married or divorced?
  2. Experienced the birth or adoption of a child?
