Life Insurance

Life insurance is a tool that delineates what happens when a consumer passes away, financially. It decides how the money is delegated to beneficiaries. Life insurance also comes into practice when a person is unable to provide for their family due to unforeseen illness or disability. Life insurance acts as a safety net for cases of emergency. Signing up for insurance entails picking a policy, paying premiums, and then filing a claim for the payout when needed. The beneficiaries in the life insurance policy get the payout in either a lump sum or in payments, based on what is written in the contract. In the United States, policy holders must pay taxes on the federal and state level for these premiums.
