  • How life insurance secures a Father’s legacy for years to comeBy Emily Miller

    Father’s Day is a celebration honoring fathers and father figures alike who have had a positive influence in our lives.

    It is a day that should be spent, not just showering our dads with gifts, but thanking them for all of their hard work and dedication We should all spend less time worrying about the gift and more time with him. In the long run, it is not about the gifts you give but about the memories you create.

    Unfortunately, not all of us are fortunate enough to still have our dads in our lives – as I lost mine when I was only 10 years old.

    Looking back at it now, I did not fully understand the financial and emotional strain the loss of my father had on my family. My mother, who was a stay-at-home mom at the time, had to pick herself up and go back to work, as she was now the sole breadwinner for our family.

    Thankfully, my dad not only had a life insurance policy but also had recently increased it as our financial needs had changed.

    As I have grown up and matured, I often think about what would have happened to my family if my dad did not have a life insurance policy and how different my life would be.

    Would my family be able to afford our current home?

    How would I have paid for college? Or would I have even been able to attend college?

    Would I have had to get a part-time job to help out?

    These are the types of questions that race through my head every year around this time and every year I am more thankful for what my father did for my family.

    While he may not physically still be with us, he will forever be in our hearts and in our minds. My life and my family’s life would not be the same without his responsible decision to set up a life insurance policy.

    Do not be afraid to talk about life insurance this Father’s Day as it should not be about death but about love and the desire to protect those close to your heart. Giving the gift of life insurance this Father’s Day may not seem so special right now but, take it from me, it has been the gift that keeps on giving.
