Ultimately, it helps ease the financial burden on your family if you were to pass away.

Because people count on you. You may not know what the future will bring, but if you were to pass away, help make sure your loved ones are financially protected.
For living expenses and to pay off debts. In the event of death, proceeds from a life insurance policy can be used to help cover things like: mortgage or rent payments, child care, outstanding credit card or loan debt, maintaining a current lifestyle, or providing care for an elderly or disabled relative.
To plan for the future. An education fund, a secure retirement — the loss of your income due to death could adversely impact your family’s ability to plan for the future.
To cover final expense costs. Proceeds from a life insurance policy can be used to help pay funeral expenses and memorial services.
Business continuation. If you own a business, life insurance may help ensure that this dream you’ve worked so hard for continues after your death.
A Lasting or charitable gift. Life insurance may be a way to support the organizations or causes that are important to you even after you are gone.
