Episode 14: The conversation no one wants to have
On this episode…
For cousins Desha and Tanda, the unexpected passing of their aunt and “third musketeer” was a crushing blow—but it was also a wake-up call for their family finances. They discuss the tough lessons and silver linings that accompanied their loss and how their aunt’s savvy planning and life insurance helped them stay afloat amidst a flood of grief.
This episode’s expert is Brooks Tingle, President and CEO of John Hancock Insurance. Brooks helps us understand why sometimes the hardest conversations are the most important and offers insights into the life insurance process.
Take advantage of triggering life events—marriage, kids or a global pandemic—to start a conversation about estate planning and life insurance with loved ones.
If affordability is a barrier, remember that some life insurance is better than none at all.
Don't just start the process and forget about it. Setting up an estate plan and life insurance can be daunting but in a worst-case scenario, follow-through is crucial.
Review your life insurance policy and beneficiaries annually as part of your broader financial picture.
If you think you’re too young for life insurance, think again. Premiums can be less expensive when you’re younger and plans like John Hancock Vitality offer benefits and discounts you can enjoy now.
