Life Sense

17 Loves Worth Insuring

Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, Presidents’ Day—February may be the shortest month of the year, but there is a lot going on.

You can also add Insure Your Love Month to that list. The nonprofit organization Life Happens creates and coordinates the campaign each year in recognition of the number one reason that people buy life insurance: Because they love someone and want to make sure they’d be financially protected if something unfortunate happened.

When people think of who they’d protect with life insurance, they typically think of kids and spouses. But there are many other people—and non-people!—who can benefit from life insurance. Here’s a list of “loves” that can be protected or benefit from a life insurance policy.

  1. Your husband
  2. Your wife
  3. Your domestic partner
  4. Your child
  5. Someone who’s like a child to you
  6. Your stepchild
  7. Your grandchild
  8. Your niece
  9. Your nephew
  10. Your mom
  11. Your dad
  12. Someone who was like a mom or dad to you
  13. Your favorite waitress who could really use a windfall
  14. Your place of worship
  15. Your favorite charity
  16. Your alma mater
  17. A trust that can benefit your pet

If someone or something on this list could benefit from life insurance protection, now is the time to talk about how to insure your love. An insurance professional like an Erie Insurance agent can tell you about options that work with your life and budget.
