What is Life Insurance?

            As agents and advisors, our creed is to help society help itself.  We support the American public in the most personal and meaningful ways.  When everyone else is at the door with his or her hands out, we are there to give and aid those who need it most.  There is no doubt that the insurance industry is one of the solutions to America’s economic woes.  Let us not forget this as we go about our everyday business lives.
            Recently I delivered a death claim to a client.  This process was two parts: I met with my client in the comfort of her own home and was able to spend a few minutes with her discussing recent events, and I assured her not to worry, that I would process the claim in a timely manner.  Ten days passed and I received a check in the mail for the death benefit amount and interest.  I reconnected with my client and returned to her home the next day.  When I saw her she seemed to have shrunk, her face swollen with grief and sadness.  She had lost all of her normal happy glow.  She said that she loved her husband and never thought she would need to call me.  When I presented her with the check, all of her emotion came to a head.  I instantly hugged her and offered my sincerest apologies.  Her lips were barely able to move, but the words “thank you” came out.  Every situation in which I present a death claim, no matter if these are clients I have known for my entire career or for just a short time, lives with me every day.
            I am grateful to be able to offer my services to my clients.  An agent that I worked with many years ago told me that when an agent has a death claim, it is his or her “turn to shine”.  What I do is not just sell life insurance, but also provide a lifetime of security.
