Life Insurance Awareness Month: Remember to protect the ones you love

09/01/2011

LINCOLN, RI – September is Life Insurance Awareness Month, so Amica Life reminds consumers that now is the perfect time to think about their life insurance needs.

“Life Insurance Awareness Month is an opportunity to educate consumers about the importance of proper life insurance coverage,” said Ed Naya, an assistant vice president who oversees Amica Life’s Marketing Department. “Whether you’re getting married, buying a house, having a baby or caring for aging parents, you need life insurance to protect the people you love.”

Life insurance is one of the most important purchases a person can make, Naya said. “If something happens to you, life insurance can help your family pay the bills, provide for a child’s education, protect a spouse’s retirement and protect your aging parents if you’re no longer here.”

There area variety of life insurance options out there, including term, whole life and annuities, Naya said. But it can be tough to figure out the right type, or even how much is needed. And a person’s needs can change as the person’s life changes – whether buying a house, having children or preparing to retire. That’s why it’s important to consult with a life insurance professional who has the knowledge and experience to help navigate through the offerings, he said.

“At Amica Life, we’ve got a team of trained life insurance professionals who’ll take the time to get to know you, so we can help you figure out which insurance is best to protect your loved ones – at a price you can afford,” Naya said.

Amica Life also makes getting life insurance easy, he said. Consumers can get a quick and easy quote online in minutes at Amica.com/Life, or by calling 800-234-LIFE to speak directly with someone who has the information and answers.

“Clear, simple answers from people who care – that’s Life with Amica,” Naya said.
