Life Insurance Awareness Month a good time to re-evaluate coverage

Now is an ideal time for dentists to re-evaluate insurance coverage, which can have huge implications on the lives of their families and their ability to retire.

Life Happens, a nonprofit organization formed in 1994, has dubbed September Life Insurance Awareness Month. The associated awareness campaign is intended to help consumers understand life, disability, long-term care and health insurance.

To ensure Americans understand the need for life insurance in their financial plans, the Life and Health Insurance Foundation for Education coordinates Life Insurance Awareness Month with more than 100 of the nation’s leading insurance companies and industry groups.

TDIC Insurance Solutions reminds dentists that it is essential to obtain and expand proper life insurance coverage as their life insurance decisions can make a big impact on their futures, as well as their families’.

According to the industry group Life Insurance Market Research Association, the proportion of U.S. adults with life insurance protection has declined to an all-time low, as 41 percent (95 million) of U.S. adults have no life insurance at all. Both men and women are less likely to own life insurance today than they were in 2004 — only 61 percent of men and 57 percent of women have some sort of life insurance coverage.

There are specific changes a dentist can make not only to protect the future of their families, but also to generate supplemental money for such things as retirement.

TDIC Insurance Solutions partners with several of the nation’s most respected insurance carriers to offer plenty of choices to policyholders.
