4 Reasons Why We Should Insure our Children?

calgary Life Insurance Quotes

It really can set them up for a more financially secure future

This is a difficult conversation, but it is something that should be discussed.
Here are 4 reasons why you should consider insuring your children & grandchildren:
1. Guarantee insurability for the future. Just in case down the road, as an adult, they become uninsurable not only because of health issues but also because of lifestyle choices such as skydiving, bungee jumping, paragliding or drug usage.
2. It’s a wonderful legacy gift to be able to provide your child with a fully paid up permanent insurance policy as an adult, with cash value. Many insurance companies include an option for your child to increase coverage as an adult. This is great because they don't have to qualify to get it. The kids can eventually borrow against the cash surrender value of a permanent policy. This is how we bought our first good used car after we got married.

3. If the unthinkable happens then having insurance on your child will help ease the financial strain of funeral expenses. Dealing with a tragic loss does not need to be compounded by financial stress. Having proper protection in place allows you to take the necessary time off work to grieve.
4. It is very inexpensive. Especially if the policy is taken out at a young age. Permanent insurance works best and can be paid for in full within 20 years or less and will continue to grow in cash value for years to come. It's also a great strategy to grow money on a tax-sheltered basis.

I contacted Langford Financial to see if they could help me with specific questions on retirement & estate planning, efficient tax strategies, CPP and OAS benefits, and income drawdown strategies. I was very nervous at first about whether they would be a good fit for my needs, but my concerns were quickly put to rest and Willis and his team made me feel at ease right from the very first meeting.

They are very easy to work with, are very knowledgeable and resourceful, are able to break down complex matters into an easy-to-understand manner, and are always quick to respond to any questions. They reviewed my situation and were able to tailor a plan to fit my specific needs, to my complete satisfaction.

The plan included amongst other things, the best way to utilize efficient income tax strategies. helped me to understand the correct drawdown of assets which would result in larger savings, and provided guidance on insurance products and efficient estate planning.

As a result, I have a much clearer picture of my financial situation now and feel very confident and satisfied with the plan that they have proposed for me, going forward. What I appreciated the most about Willis and his team was that, in addition to their friendly, personable and professional approach, at no time was there ever any pressure to purchase any products.

I am very happy with the service I received from Willis and his team and would recommend Langford Financial to anyone looking for advice on their retirement planning needs. You will not be disappointed!
