As a parent, life insurance for your child is probably the furthest thing from your mind. You have other decisions to think about like college funds and savings or a life insurance policy for yourself. The thought of talking about life insurance is probably like the sound of nails on a chalkboard, at least it was for a friend who is near and dear to me. Thankfully, we discussed the need, and she decided to purchase child’s life insurance for her son who was just an infant at the time.
When Child Life Insurance Hits Home
At the time, he was a healthy child and it was inexpensive and easy to obtain the coverage. Then, at the age of 7 years old, he was diagnosed with a devastating illness. Trying to get coverage post diagnosis would have been a challenge. He may not have qualified, and the cost may have been higher due to a now pre-existing condition. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the first time I’ve seen this happen. It has happened to several families close to me. I want to share this with as many parents and grandparents so that they can avoid this very unfortunate news.
Securing child life insurance early on allows you to lock in your child’s insurability and to purchase coverage at inexpensive premiums. The time to take action and secure their eligibility is now.
