Frequently Asked Questions

Why would I need Life Insurance

Life insurance is commonly used to protect your loved ones and provide a death benefit to help cover expenses in the event of your premature death and loss of income. Xpert Insurance Services also features living benefits that can be used while you are still alive.

Im single with no kids. I have no need for life Insurance.

Of course you have no need. Anyone who NEEDS life insurance cannot acquire it simply because they’ve now become Uninsurable. We can’t predict the future but we can PROTECT it. 

Why do I need it today?

Because today is the cheapest day you’ll ever pay for life insurance. The older you get & the longer you wait, naturally, it is more expensive to insure yourself because of the increased risk of disease & imminent death. Waiting rather hurts you then helps you. 

Life insurance: It's too expensive

Most things are nowadays. But what if you knew 86% of people haven’t bought life insurance because they assumed it was too expensive, yet overestimate it’s true cost by more than double.

I already have it through my employer. Why would i need more?

This is great news that you have something in place! The only issue that leaves you unprotected is the insurance Carrier has the right to adjust your premium to rate you at your age of termination & not the age you initially received the policy.
