COVID-19 Caused Changes in Life Insurance for Massachusetts Residents
As reported by the Patriot Ledger, the pandemic led to business closures, layoffs, and furloughs for many MA residents, particularly in the service and hospitality industries. If you were forced to find new employment, you lost your company-sponsored benefits. If those perks included life insurance, it’s time to buy a new policy — especially if you’ve purchased or sold a home.
The Massachusetts Real Estate Market Exploded in 2021
If you bought a home in 2021, it’s time to:
- Buy a term life policy to protect your spouse or partner and pay the mortgage if tragedy strikes.
- Buy a whole life insurance policy that will build a cash value in a few years (you can borrow those funds later for emergency home repairs)
If you downsized in 2021, it would be a great time to put some extra funds in an annuity. Then you can safeguard it for retirement.
Finally, even if you’re not interested in buying a life insurance policy right now, it’s always a good idea to check on your contact information and beneficiary information. Make it a fall tradition!
