REASONS TO PURCHASE LIFE INSURANCE:

Keeping a Home in the Family

Jason and Amy are raising a family while paying down their mortgage. Whatever happens, they don’t want their children to lose their home or be burdened with their debt.

What’s the answer?  

Jason and Amy purchased 30-year term life insurance policies to pay off their mortgage. Their wish is to have the home passed down to their children. 

Leave Them with Memories, Not Bills

David is the primary wage-earner for his family and worries about a time he might not be there anymore. He wants to ensure his family isn’t burdened by costs for his funeral or unpaid medical bills.

What’s the answer?

David purchased a permanent life insurance policy from Erie Family Life to provide the funds necessary to pay final expenses. He feels better knowing it might help ease their pain during a stressful time.

Safeguarding Your Family’s Lifestyle

John and Lisa each contribute to their household of seven. They want to make sure the income they provide today is there for the family should something happen to either of them.

What’s the answer?

20-year term life plans from Erie Family Life put John and Lisa’s concerns to rest. Each policy can be used to help pay off debt and pay the monthly bills in order to maintain the family’s lifestyle. 

What if College Dreams are Cut Short?

James and Mary are proud of their daughter who is in college. They hate to think about it, but what if something was to happen to her? Could they pay off the student loans they cosigned?

What’s the answer?
