5 Reasons to Get Life Insurance Now

By Jake Bronstein Jun 23, 2017

There’s never been a better day than today to get life insurance checked off your list. Here are five great reasons why.

1. There Are People Depending on You

As long as there are people depending on you, it’s important to make a plan for them financially in case something were to happen to you. If you weren't around anymore, how would your spouse support the family? Who would pay for your children's college education? Life insurance should be an important part of the plan. Putting it off isn't helping anyone.

2. It’s Better to Buy When You're Healthy

As you get older, your risk of dying increases. As a result, the cost of life insurance will go up over time. Feeling healthy? Perfect. Now is a great time to buy.

3. Technology Makes It Easier Than Ever

Getting a life insurance policy used to mean meetings with agents, going back and forth over pricing and paperwork, and waiting. Lots and lots of waiting. Then we launched Fabric. You can apply for life insurance online in minutes, without ever speaking to an agent. It's basically as easy as it gets.

4. You Wouldn’t Want to Fall Behind

Odds are if you’re a parent who’s putting off getting life insurance, you’re comforted by thinking your friends are in the same boat. But just because your friends haven’t told you they got a policy doesn’t mean they didn’t get it taken care of. Ask someone you trust. Better yet, get life insurance now, tell a friend, and break the cycle of silence once and for all!

5. It Feels Great

Being a great parent starts with checking off the basics. You know the relief you feel when you take care of a lingering chore? That’s the feeling that most of our customers report after discovering how easy we make checking life insurance off the list.
