Is the Cost of Life Insurance Holding You Back?

Living life can be expensive. We all have important needs to cover, such as food for our families and transportation to get us to and from work. We also have costs in life that we don’t always think about, like taking care of pets and celebrating special events.

These “life costs” add up – and we might not even realize how much we’re spending. For example, dog owners spend an average of $1361 a month to take care of their pet. The costs of more “urgent” living necessities are even higher – the average person spends about $584 on food per month2!

How would your family cover these expenses if you’re no longer there?

A practical way to cover these expenses in the event something happens to you is by having life insurance. But is life insurance out of reach? Many people think so. In fact, most Americans overestimate the cost of life insurance by three times.3

In reality, life insurance can be a surprisingly affordable purchase to help protect your family. In fact, depending on your health and other factors, it can cost less per month than the daily cost of food!

Life insurance can be a valuable part of your family’s financial security. Overlooking this important way to help protect your family could be a costly decision that could leave those you care about the most without the future they deserve.

Consider making life insurance another “essential” to help protect the most important parts of life. Get your life insurance quote at, or contact your local AAA Life Insurance Specialist at - NATIONAL DOG DAY - This Is How Much Americans Spend on Their Dogs - Aug 26, 2016
