People think of life insurance for the death benefit, but most people don’t know the powerful lifetime retirement and tax benefits of permanent life insurance. Life insurance creates more long-term wealth than any other investment. And because this wealth can be income tax-free as a death benefit, it’s more valuable than a tax-deferred retirement program. It’s a powerful leverage tool that creates wealth. Life insurance is a contract between you and the issuing insurance carrier.

“Income replacement insurance” might be a better way to think of this coverage, since that’s what it is designed to do. Long-term disability insurance usually replaces up to about two-thirds of your income if you can no longer do your own job.

We can help insure you in case a disability leaves you unable to work.
