For many years, my husband and I considered investing in life insurance policies, but we were so overwhelmed by our options that we kept putting off researching them. However, when a good friend of ours passed away, we were amazed at how expensive the funeral was. We learned that funeral costs have been rising steadily and there is no sign that they will stop rising. We then decided that we needed to invest in life insurance soon, so we would not have to cover funeral expenses out of pocket when one of us passes away. We put a lot of research into our options and are eager to share what we learned with others on our new blog to be helpful to our community!
