You can’t put a dollar amount on your family, but you can ensure their future is protected. Individual life insurance is arguably the biggest investment you can make in your loved ones’ security. Life insurance can help your family with funeral costs, mortgage, and auto payments, protect your small business and retirement savings, provide spousal support/income replacement, and help provide for your family.
There are three types to consider: term life insurance, whole life insurance, and universal life insurance. The premiums you pay depend heavily on your age and medical history, along with the amount you want the policy to pay out. So, it’s important to seek expert advice before committing to life insurance.

No one wants to consider the unthinkable, so talking about child life insurance can be difficult. But, there are advantages to this type of coverage that you might not be aware of. We’ll talk you through the basics of a child life policy to help you decide if it’s right for your family.
Child life insurance is usually a whole life policy that starts much earlier in life than usual. It has three main advantages.
- One is that it can cover funeral costs, counseling, and leave from work in the tragic event that your child dies.
- The second advantage is that it can act as a form of savings, particularly for college fees. Most child life insurance policies build up a cash reserve that you can either withdraw (for a fee) or use as security on a loan. In most cases, the growth of this cash reserve is at a guaranteed rate.
- The final advantage is that starting a policy now reduces the risk of your child having trouble getting a policy themselves as an adult if they’ve developed a medical condition in the meantime.

Paying for life insurance for your employees is a valuable benefit that can be a big selling point when recruiting staff. Accidental death and dismemberment insurance is a variation on life insurance, but it only pays out if the death is from an accident (or in some cases a homicide). It usually only pays out if the death happens while premiums are still being paid (similar to term life insurance).
Accidental death and dismemberment insurance can be a policy on its own, or it can be added on top of the normal life insurance payout – however, neither of these policies are a substitute for workers’ compensation insurance. This is mandatory for most employers, and while it only covers injuries or deaths at work, it does pay out for medical bills, some lost income, and death benefits.
Serious illnesses or accidents can come out of nowhere. They can interrupt your life, and your ability to work for months—even years. The principle of long-term disability insurance is simple enough–you pay premiums and if you become disabled and are no longer able to work, you get regular payments to make up some of the lost income. As with life insurance, it’s often a smart way to make sure you and your family (or financial dependents) are protected if the worst happens.
Long-term care insurance may be your best option if you develop a chronic illness or become disabled and can no longer care for yourself for an extended period of time. While it’s great news that medical advances mean people are living longer, it does increase the chances of needing long-term care. This can be a costly service and is usually not covered by typical medical insurance. The potential expenses of long-term care are wide-ranging and long-lasting, covering nursing home bills, day care services, home modification, and assisted living facilities, among others. Long-term care insurance will pay out to cover these costs (and give you peace of mind before those costs arise). Contact us to explore long-term care insurance coverage and if it may be a good fit for you and your family.
Disability insurance protects your employees from a temporary loss of income and is a fundamental part of a quality health insurance package. Disability insurance pays out to an employee of your business who is unable to work because of illness or injury. Typically this pay out is equal to 60 percent of their typical salary and is often paid as tax-free income structured just for you. Want to know more about disability insurance for your employees?

In general, group health insurance is the first priority for employees and is the second largest expense for employers behind payroll. Depending on the plan, your business can cover employees only or can choose to offer coverage to the family and financial dependents of employees, as well. Additionally, your company can choose to cover the premiums in full or split the cost with employees. Ready to offer group health insurance to your employees? We can help you weigh your options.
