families an even greater level of financial security. Consider term life insurance if:

Life Insurance with a Reliable Income Stream:
What is it, and why would you want it?
We don’t really like talking about it, but death… is part of life. And while we can’t plan when that will happen, we can take steps to help make sure our loved ones are taken care of, financially.
That’s where life insurance comes in.
Most life insurance pays a lump sum of money to a beneficiary when the insured person dies. While that’s a valuable benefit, how do you know your loved ones will have enough ongoing income to maintain their current lifestyle? How will they stay in your home? Continue to pay the bills? Or save for the future?
We may have an answer. But let’s start by understanding there really are two types of financial needs when someone dies – Immediate, and ongoing.
By immediate, we mean expenses that occur within a couple of months of someone’s death…
Like their funeral. In 2019, the average funeral and burial cost over $9,100.1
But then there’s debt, too, which doesn’t go away when someone dies. Did you know that 73% of Americans die in debt? And the average amount they owe? It’s over $61,000.2
1 National Funeral Directors Association, 2019 Statistics. 2 Experian data as reported to Credit.com, accessed Sept. 2020. Includes home loan balances.
Okay, immediate expenses. They’re real.
But then… there are ongoing expenses, and by that we mean costs your loved ones will need to continue paying to maintain their current lifestyle.
Ongoing expenses can add up. Now what?
With Income Choice Term from Western & Southern Life, you decide how much money your loved ones receive when you die, as well as how much they receive as regular payments into the future. That helps create peace of mind, knowing your loved ones will be taken care of, financially.
Income Choice Term. Life insurance that pays an up-front death benefit and provides an ongoing, reliable income stream.
