Death is Inevitable and Happens When We Least Expect It

Death is likely the most avoided conversation subject there is. It makes people uncomfortable to consider the ones they love passing away and even more so to consider their own death.

The thing is, death is not something you can plan. None of us know the time or date. It often takes us by surprise and leaves our loved ones there to try and clean up the pieces while holding themselves together.

Consider for a moment it is you that is left behind. The one you are closest to has passed away in a freak accident. You feel devastated and alone. Now you have to pull yourself together to not only deal with your own day to day life but also take on the settlement of their estate, belongings, calling of family and friends, and even making funeral arrangements. It can be too much.

Adding to that many people do not have a life insurance policy in place. That leaves debts unsettled, bills unpaid (which can potentially be a problem if you share a household), and you taking time away from work to grieve as well as do all of this depressing paperwork.

What a life insurance policy does is help protect you. The living survivor. If you have a family or a loved one who depends on you or who would be finding it very hard to move on without you a life insurance policy is a gift of love.

In 2018 The Center for Disease Control reported that the top causes of the 2,896,793 deaths in the United States were:

  • Heart disease: 714,348
  • Cancer: 541,722
  • Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 152,101
  • Accidents (unintentional injuries): 149,053
  • Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 138,103
  • Alzheimer’s disease: 93,541
  • Diabetes: 82,488
  • Influenza and Pneumonia: 65,227
    Car accidents: 40,000

Some causes are hereditary while some are due to lifestyle choices, and some are just pure accidents. No matter how these individuals died, they all left people behind mourning for them. It is always difficult to lose someone you love, especially when it is unexpected.

We wanted to talk to you about death today not to be morbid or depressing but because we need you to understand how important life insurance is. Taking the time to find the best policy for you and your family long before an illness or tragedy occurs is vital. If you take care of your family while you are alive, you can also take care of them after your death.

By having a policy in place, you help to pay the mortgage, pay bills, fund your kids’ college bill, pay for your funeral expenses, and anything else that your family would look to you for support while alive.

We know, it is tough to consider your own death, but it is inevitable for all of us. Call us here at Centennial Insurance Services 239-247-5125 and we can put together the best life insurance policy for you and your family.
