What Types of Ways Are There for Paying for Life Insurance?

If you have been thinking about buying a life insurance policy but you don’t know how you are going to pay for it, it is pertinent that you come up with a plan for a budget so that you can make the premium payments. You can ask anyone and you will hear over and over how important it is to invest in life insurance. Not only does it provide you with peace of mind in knowing you can leave your loved ones financially protected if you were to pass away but it’s also a great way to invest money if you buy a whole life policy that comes with a cash value. For now, Linda Dugan Insurance serving the Astoria, OR area would like to share two tips for budgeting for a life insurance policy. 

Get Your Priorities In Line

Sure, that $2 McChicken and small fry from McDonald’s might be quick and convenient for lunch each day, but this is costing you $60 a month. What if you chose a healthier lunch option that you can bring from home and instead of spending the money at McDonald’s, you invest it in an insurance policy? Budgeting for a life insurance policy starts with getting your priorities straight. 

Set a Goal and Stick to It

If you want to invest in life insurance, you can set a goal to set aside $50 a month to pay for your premium. When you set goals, studies have shown that they become much easier to meet rather than trying to accomplish something without putting a plan in place.

As Your Business Grows, So Should Your Coverage

Commercial insurance policies provide coverage for many different aspects of your business- from liability and property damage to business interruption coverage. As your business grows its value is also increasing. We recommend that all of our commercial clients in the greater Astoria, OR area sit down with one of the agents at Linda Dugan Insurance each year to review their policies and discuss any changes that may need to be made.
