Can Life Insurance Be Used As An Asset? (Round Rock, TX)

Policyholders often wonder if their life insurance can be considered a financial asset. Well, the answer typically depends on the type of insurance you have when it comes to life insurance. There are two main types term life insurance and permanent life insurance. Term life insurance covers you for a specific period of time, usually between five and 30 years and once that term expires. So does the coverage, it also does not build cash value and therefore it cannot be used as an asset. Permanent Life insurance on the other hand, provides lifelong protection. Now, this type of policy also has the ability to build cash value over time. This cash value can be accessed through policy loans or withdrawals and can be used for a variety of purposes while both types of insurance have their own advantages. Permanent life insurance is the one that has the potential to be used as an asset. Now, if you’re not sure what type of pol policy is right for you, speak with a life insurance agent to learn more about your options.

How Important Is Business Insurance? (Round Rock, TX)

At some point, most business owners will ask themselves how important it is to carry a business insurance policy. Now, I get it. This question is totally understandable, especially if you have never filed a claim before. However, it is so important to remember that just because you’ve never needed to file a claim does not mean that you never will. So first off, you need to keep in mind that some businesses are actually required to carry certain types of insurance. It’s an obligation to be insured.

Second, operating without insurance risks your livelihood; it risks the incomes of your employees; and it even risks the solvency of any businesses that rely on you for service. So before making a decision on how to structure your business insurance, it is definitely worth taking a step back and taking account of all the even more impossible situations that could cause your business to suffer. So once you’ve brought those up to your insurance agent, the good ones can help you shave off any unnecessary costs out of your business policy while still providing a solid coverage amount. Oh, and do not be shy about letting them know that you have questions or concerns. I hope this was helpful.

Can a Life Insurance Beneficiary Be Changed? (Round Rock, TX)

Look, I know we all understand the importance of having life insurance, right? But some policy holders are a little bit confused about whether or not the beneficiary of a life insurance policy can be changed. So in most cases, changing a life insurance beneficiary is relatively straightforward. Uh Typically you’ll just need to fill out a form or two from your carrier uh to the new beneficiary. Now, I will say in a few cases, however, changing the beneficiary of a life insurance policy will require the approval or permission of someone else. So if you live in a community property state and bought the life insurance policy after getting married, you’ll need the permission of your spouse before changing the beneficiary. Now, on a similar note, if your life insurance policy has an irrevocable beneficiary, then you will need approval from that beneficiary before changing the policy to make sure your life insurance policy is structured properly. The best thing to do is to just sit down with your insurance agent and have them show you your options.
