I No Longer Stress About Family Finances. Here’s Why

Until recently, I hadn’t realized I might not be adequately guaranteeing my family’s long-term financial security. For months, my wife Francesca touted the idea of life insurance, and at first, I didn’t take it seriously. Why should I pay for something that I won’t actually use? Plus, I vividly recall the one other time I tried to purchase life insurance, and the process was a hassle: with so many plans and options out there, I didn’t even know where to start. I realized that this is why so few Americans have life insurance policies – the process is overwhelming for anyone to tackle. Thankfully, we had a trusted partner in our life insurance search that made policy shopping a seamless and painless process: SelectQuote.

SelectQuote took the headache out of our life insurance plan search by doing the searching for us. SelectQuote lets us skip the process of obtaining quotes and estimates from multiple trusted life insurance companies*, and compiles them for us in one easy to understand estimate. No more endless searching and comparing — just one step. All we needed to do was enter some basic information on the SelectQuote website, and they took care of the rest. SelectQuote aggressively comparison shops highly-rated companies that they represent to find you the company with best rates. Francesca and I now have trustworthy life insurance plans that cost us around $19 per month, thanks to SelectQuote.

Though our plans are low-cost, they have high value. Our low monthly premiums pay for plans valued at $500,000 – that’s about four times our annual family income. We pay what feels like pocket change to give our daughters Marie and Charlotte years of stability if something happened to us, and that felt worthwhile despite my prior resistance. The peace of mind having life insurance provided, however, is priceless. 

We went through the SelectQuote process nearly a year ago. Since then, we’ve been nothing but thrilled with our life insurance plans. I speak for both of us when I say that our only regret was not buying our plans sooner. Now that we’re insured, we can ensure Marie and Charlotte that we’ll be there for them – even when we’re not.

If my story has compelled you to consider your life insurance options, you can begin your journey right now. Leave the heavy lifting up to SelectQuote: they’ll find you a price you can afford. Just click here to compare plans, sign up for a policy, and take a significant and important step toward caring for your family forever and always.
