CHICAGO, Aug. 31, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- September is Life Insurance Awareness Month—a month designated to helping consumers understand the importance of life insurance, coordinated by the non-profit organization Life Happens. Combined Insurance, a leading provider of individual supplemental accident, disability, health and life insurance products and a Chubb company, joins these efforts to help educate consumers at all stages of life about the importance of life insurance.

"Life insurance is important at any stage in your life for the future protection of yourself and your loved ones," said Doug Abercrombie, Chief Agency Officer at Combined Insurance. "At Combined Insurance, we aim to educate consumers about their options and provide personalized support and understanding, so they can purchase the life insurance that best suits their needs."  

According to a 2018 report published by LIMRA1:

  • More than one third (35 percent) of all households would feel adverse financial impacts within one month if a primary wage earner died.
  • Among individuals with life insurance, about 1 in 5 say that they do not have enough.
  • In 2017, only 48 percent of employers offered life insurance to their workers, a 23 percent decline from 2006.

Additionally, LIMRA reported that 40 percent of people do not know how much coverage they need and what type of life insurance to buy. Millennials in particular, nearly six in 10, feel this way2.

"We strive to make life insurance easy to understand, so you can have a peace of mind when the unexpected happens," said Abercrombie. "Our agents take pride in educating customers and offering the product that is right for them."

Combined Insurance issues a variety of life insurance products, and agents are available throughout the country, including Puerto Rico, to meet with prospective customers and discuss their insurance needs.

Consider the Family Life Protector, a simple whole life policy that is intended to pay for final expenses, and offers a term life rider that provides accelerated death benefits to help cover costs while you are still living3. This combination of benefits can give consumers the best of both worlds4.

With nearly 100 years of success in the industry, Combined Insurance was founded on 'doing the right thing, because it's the right thing to do'—a quote coined by the company's founder, W. Clement Stone.

Combined Insurance Company of America has an A+ (Superior) financial strength rating by A.M. Best, one of the world's top insurance rating firms. The company has also been recognized for eight consecutive years on Ward's 50® Top Performing Health-Life Insurance Companies list.
