Goals: Ensure his family is protected and has enough money if he passes away
Juan and his wife Kathy have been married for three years. They recently welcomed their one-year-old son, Tom, into the world.
To ensure his family was protected, he knew he needed to purchase life insurance. Keeping his family in a great home and making sure they could replace his income were Juan’s top priorities but he also wanted to make sure there was a death benefit regardless of when he passed away. With welcoming a newborn into the world, Juan had a limited budget to work with. As he researched different products, he understood the importance of term insurance for larger coverage but was worried about spending too much on Term Life Insurance that only provided coverage for a certain amount of time.
Juan shared this information with his Catholic Financial Life Advisor. His Advisor discussed the benefits of Term Life Insurance for covering large, temporary needs and the importance of Whole Life Insurance for covering permanent needs. His Advisor mentioned the benefits of combining Value Life Insurance with a Term Rider for additional protection. After Juan reviewed the numbers of an individual Term Life Insurance plan or a Value Life Insurance plan with a Term Rider, it made more sense to apply for the combination plan.

Goals: Ensure her family has enough money if she passes away to cover funeral costs
Catherine is a 67-year-old recent retiree. When reviewing her finances and organizing important documents, she grew concerned that her three children would need to pay for her funeral/burial out of pocket since she didn’t have any life insurance. She only had group coverage through work that expired when she retired. Catherine reached out to a Catholic Financial Life Advisor and purchased a $25,000 Value Life Insurance policy for less than $90 per month. Her coverage will never decrease and her premium will never increase. Catherine was able to enjoy more of her retirement knowing her kids were financially protected if something were to happen to her.
