Restoring Security in Tough Financial Times

Raleigh, North Carolina (PressExposure) June 02, 2009 -- Life Insurance Can Give a Sense of Confidence to Families

Current economic conditions have left the long-term financial plans of many in disarray. People are wondering how much value they have lost in their portfolios and, more importantly, how they can get their plans back on track to ensure the financial security of their families. W. Landon Watts (, wealth strategist for Banyan Rock & Talent, believes that life insurance can address these concerns and be utilized as an asset replacement vehicle.

"The economic environment we're facing holds no biases; it's affecting everyone—from young couples just starting out to those nearing retirement," says Watts. "We all want financial security for our families. Adding life insurance into the mix is one way of achieving it."

Adding life insurance to a family's portfolio can offer an array of benefits, including the ability to pay down debt or a mortgage, providing funds for a college education, covering funeral expenses when the insured dies and providing income to a widow or widower.

Individuals should take note, however, that there are numerous types of life insurance. Watts recommends that individuals and families take time to thoroughly investigate which policy might be best for them. Age, health, children, fiscal goals and the family financial situation are all factors that he believes need to be considered before purchasing a policy.

"You can't rush in when looking at life insurance," adds Watts. "There are too many choices, and even more questions. Speaking to a professional is a good start at bringing clarity to the issue."
