According to a recent study, ownership of life insurance by families making less than $100,000 per year has declined by 25%.
What’s so troubling about this is that many of these families, who stand to be hurt the most by COVID-19 and the economic downturn, may have nothing to fall back on if the unthinkable happens.
To put it bluntly, low- to middle-income families are missing out on the security that life insurance provides.
Many Millennial Families Don’t Know that Term Life Insurance is Affordable
The top reasons cited for not purchasing life insurance were related to money. Responders said they had other financial priorities or felt that life insurance was simply too expensive.
The study also showed, however, that this belief may be rooted in a misconception! According to those surveyed, half of Millennials believed that the estimated cost for a term life insurance policy ran into the thousands. In reality, the yearly or monthly cost is much lower.
Term Life Insurance Rates are at a 20-Year Low
Now is actually the perfect time to purchase a plan that will provide security for your family. That’s because rates are at a historic low.
For example, a 40-year-old male, non-smoker and otherwise in good health, can get a $1,000,000 10-year level term life insurance policy for less than $24.00 per month!
