Life Insurance

Life insurance is a way to protect your finances and secure your loved one’s quality of life after you’re gone. Some benefits include income replacement for dependents, inheritance final expense coverage, and a source of savings. We offer our clients a choice of term or permanent life insurance policies.

Term Life Insurance

  • Provides coverage in incremental years
  • Pays a specified death benefit amount to beneficiaries 
  • Generally, has lower premiums 
  • No cash value upon maturity

Permanent Life Insurance

  • Builds up a cash value over the life of the policy term
  • Provides an option to borrow against the policy’s cash value 
  • The cash value can be applied to your retirement income or help to pay towards tuition expenses for your dependents

Annuities

Let an advisor from Competitive Advantage show you how to use annuities as part of a diversified financial plan. Annuities provide a simple and secure stream of income, no matter which way the stock and bond markets are moving.

Similar to an insurance policy, you pay an insurance company a monthly premium, which they’ll invest. Eventually, the insurance company will use the earnings to pay you back. It’s up to you how much you pay into the annuity, how much you collect, and how long you’ll receive payments.

Let us explain how annuities can put your money to work for you and your employees.

  • Provides a specified guaranteed benefit amount
  • Potential for tax-deferred interest earnings based on index performance

Types of Life Insurance

Term Life Insurance
  • Less expensive insurance because it covers a defined time period
  • Term coverage is sold in 10-, 20- or 30-year increments
  • We can also find providers for follow-up term life insurance when your existing policy expires
Permanent Life Insurance
  • Designed to protect you through your lifetime
  • Permanent insurance is generally more costly to purchase than term insurance, but the insurance premiums also accumulate cash value in addition to your death benefit protection
  • While it is more expensive upfront your loved ones stand to collect a higher value when it really matters
Key Person Insurance
What is it?
  • Essential to your business when you depend on key executives
  • They are the visionaries, innovators, and inventors who make the whole endeavor possible, and without one or more of them, the business could cease to exist
  • If an essential employee suffers an untimely disability or death, your firm could be seriously and negatively impacted
  • If your partner suffers the worst without a succession plan or proper insurance in place, you may find yourself partnered with your old partner’s spouse or children
    • Bills might not get paid
    • Customers might be left hanging
  • If it’s you who suffers, how can you assure that your own family will be justly compensated for your share of the business?
