Leveraging is when pennies can buy dollars or when one dollar can do the work of many dollars, and it’s designed for economic times like these. Challenging times require our clients’ dollars to work as efficiently as possible. These dollars must protect against calamity and simultaneously achieve financial goals. Our responsibility as insurance and financial professionals requires three essential duties: protection, safe growth and efficient provision of benefits.
The greatest leverage that we provide is income. When families, businesses and estates need income because of premature death, we provide the appropriate amount at the exact time it is needed.
But we recommend cash-value insurance because there are many times income is needed when there isn’t a death. Job loss, sudden illnesses and other catastrophic occurrences come to mind. If none of these unfortunate events occur, the money can then be used for happier things like extra retirement income.
