AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of Life Insurance Awareness Month, Austin Allstate agency owners are thanking those who help protect lives every day. On Sept. 29 Allstate agency owners will deliver pizzas as a thank you to the medical professionals at Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas, part of Ascension, the nation's largest Catholic and nonprofit health care system. "As we encourage Texans to schedule life insurance check-ups to make sure they're protecting their families, we want to say thank you to those who help protect lives every day," said Chris Lewis, a local Allstate agency owner in Austin. "Dell Children's is a major part of our community. We're providing a small token of gratitude to its medical professionals for their role in saving lives."
Austin Allstate agency owners ask Texans to join them in saying thank you to those who help protect lives – and to start the important conversation about life insurance with their loved ones.
About Life Insurance
Life insurance is particularly important if you have a spouse and/or children who depend on you. Most obviously, the insurance death benefit can help to cover unpaid medical bills or replace lost income, providing financial assistance during difficult times. Some life insurance products are used to accumulate savings or as a source of retirement income.
Advice from Allstate
- Keep important papers in a place that's readily accessible to family members. For example, you might want to designate a drawer in your desk at home for copies of insurance policies, wills and other important papers. A safety deposit box is safer for the original documents, but it's less readily accessible to your beneficiaries.
- Check your life insurance beneficiaries – and update names if needed – by contacting your insurance agent or insurance company. You can find the agent's and insurance company's contact information on the life insurance policy or premium notices. Make sure your beneficiaries know they are named on your policy.
- Schedule a visit with your insurance agent to determine if you need life insurance, and if so, how much. As part of September's Life Insurance Awareness Month, Allstate agents and financial professionals are offering complimentary insurance check-ups to help you assess your current insurance coverage based on your long-term financial needs. This information can help you make important decisions about life insurance and how it can fit into your budget.
