Why You Need Life Insurance

This post is sponsored by Bestow. However, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
 

Something Jordan and I always talk about in our home are how can we be smart with our money. How can we make sure we are spending, and saving it wisely. Something we talk about too (now that we have three kids) is planning and making sure the boys are taken care of in case anything were to happen to Jordan and me.

Today lets talk about money! I know money talk can get uncomfortable. Especially when it’s not with someone you don’t know. But we all have questions like how much should I really be spending? How much do I save? Does life insurance really matter, it’s not like I’m old or sick?

At the end of the day, how you choose to spend your money is really up to you. But I wanted to share something that Jordan and I always talk about, money, ha! I recently found out about Bestow, and I wanted to share them with you. They’re a startup right here in Texas that’s taking the uncomfortable stuff out of life insurance, like the medical exam, meeting with a stranger and talking about your death and all.

Jordan, more so than me, is very diligent with money. And I am happy he is…or else we would be like the rest of the 41% of Americans who don’t have life insurance. Can we pause for a second to let that sink in? 41% is A LOT of people.

As a stay at home mom, I know it can be tempting to think it’s not essential for you to have life insurance since you don’t technically get a paycheck, right? Wrong! Jordan and I don’t have life insurance just for our gain. We have it for our boys. It’s one thing we don’t have to worry about (God forbid) if something were to happen to us. We need to know that we are leaving enough for the boys to be more than okay.

Also, something to think about, if anything were to ever happen to me, Jordan is going to have to hire someone to help. He can’t stay home and not work. I’m going to put it this way…if you have kids, you need life insurance.

I know the misconception is that life insurance is hard to get, it’s too expensive, it takes too long to get. The exam, lab results, it’s all a pain in the rear. To top it off you’re never quite sure if you can really trust your agent. Does he want my money or does he have my families best interest at heart? I get it, I really do!

Bestow can assess your health risk in minutes, and give you an instant quote (YAY for no medical exams or waiting). Once you receive your quote you can buy life insurance right then and there. Bestow is also backed by two huge insurance companies, both A+ rated.

This means you get the same policy as a big insurance carrier, just without all the hassle (because ain’t nobody got time for that). What use to take 2 weeks – 4 months can now be completed in less than 15-minutes, and you get the same quality of coverage. Like I said, Bestow is changing the game and making life insurance more attainable and not as expensive.
