Allen Harmon Insurance Agent: Do you own any life insurance?
Valued Client: Yes, I have $100,000 through work.
Allen Harmon Insurance Agent: Did you know that you probably don’t own that policy? Usually, life insurance provided at work is owned by the employer, who cancels the coverage when you leave the company. What happens if you get sick, lose your job, and your life insurance cancels because you aren’t employed anymore? How are you going to replace your life insurance policy when your illness makes you ineligible?
We pose this question many times to our clients. A study by the Life Insurance Marketing Research Association (LIMRA) recently revealed that life insurance ownership by individuals is at all all-time low. According to the study, only 44 percent of American households own individual life insurance policies, even though 85 percent of consumers say most people should have it.
Why the huge gap? First, consumers believe it is too expensive and that “we are already covered at work” (as you can see from the example above, that may not be the best solution). Second, they say they don’t have time to shop for it. Allen Harmon Insurance, through an exclusive arrangement with Cincinnati Life Insurance, has knocked down both of these barriers.
