Life Insurance Awareness Month

September is Life Insurance Awareness month and LIMRA is out with their 2015 "Facts About Life."  This annual fact sheet is always a great source of information about consumers and financial security.

One interesting nugget in this year's report concerns online purchase of financial products like life insurance.  According to LIMRA, "while 71 percent of Americans say they research online, more than half want to work with a financial professional to purchase life insurance."

Consumers' strong preference to receive financial advice face-to-face is one reason we must all do our part to ensure every community has access to financial experts.
