Life insurance FAQs

Life insurance is something everyone needs but few people to understand. You can read about it on the Internet but that may not leave you feeling as if you are protected. With an independent insurance agent who has taken the time to get to know you, you can count on getting the information you need to make an educated decision. At Fortress Insurance Agency in Overland Park, KS, we believe in building relationships with our clients that allow us to offer them more choices and sound advice. 

Is there a best time to buy life insurance?

The obvious answer is before you need it. But since there is no definitive time when it will be needed, it is best to be proactive and have it well before you think you might need it. When you are young and healthy, you will get the most bang for your buck so it is a good time to start. 

Do I need my own life insurance if I get some from work? 

Yes, you do. Can you guarantee you will always work for this company? What if you get sick? Will you be able to keep your policy? Do you want your employer to be in charge of your family’s future?  Think of employer life insurance as the bonus that it is, the frosting on your financial cake. 

How much life insurance do I need?

Only you can answer that question. How much per year will your family need and for how many years? Multiply that by your yearly income and you have a place to start. 

Can my life insurance be canceled?

The most common reason for cancellation is the nonpayment of the premium. Another reason is lying on your application. Tell the truth and pay your premium and you are pretty safe.
