A Complete Road Map for Understanding Life Insurance and How to Use It to Protect Your Financial Future
VERO BEACH, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, April 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — During these uncertain times, many consumers have rushed to buy life insurance. The pandemic has given many people the impetus they needed to make the life insurance purchase. For the majority of Americans, however, research has shown one of the major reasons they do not buy the life insurance coverage they need is that they do not understand the products available and the benefits life insurance provides.
In his new book, The FinancialVerse: Today’s Life Insurance – A Protection Tool for Your Future ($16.99 print and $7.99 eBook), author Harry N. Stout takes his over twenty-years’ experience in the life insurance industry and creates a clear path for consumers to follow in making the decision to purchase life insurance coverage.
According to Stout, most American adults have little or no formal personal finance education and do not understand the new technologically-driven world of finance. They will have spent more time learning to drive an automobile than learning about how to use and manage money. Adults spend more time on social media each week than looking after their financial situations. As a result, Stout says many individuals live in a world of almost constant financial anxiety and stress. In fact, most people, regardless of their economic background and level of education, do not fundamentally understand the financial matters that allow them to successfully navigate the key financial decisions and risks they will face throughout life. This applies to life insurance, one of the building blocks of a strong personal financial foundation.
Ideal for consumers of all ages, the book provides a clear roadmap on the key questions and concerns of buying life insurance including:
What is Life Insurance?
The Core Product Benefits
When Coverage is Not Needed
How Much Protection Is Needed?
The Different Product Types
The Major Positives and Negatives of Available Products
