Americans seem to focus more on mortality risk than expenses when analyzing fictional characters’ life insurance needs.
Researchers at the Life and Health Insurance Foundation for Education, Washington, gathered data supporting that conclusion when they sponsored a recent survey of 1,019 U.S. adults.
The LIFE survey team asked participants to identify which of 5 television fathers appear to need the greatest amount of life insurance.
The TV fathers were Homer Simpson, Cliff Huxtable, Ray Barone and Mike Brady.
Tony Soprano of “The Sopranos” came in first, with 25% of survey participants naming him as the character likely to need the most life coverage.
