1 There are three common threats people need to consider when planning for the future. . . We can help yousolve the puzzle!Through National Life Group’s manufacturing companies, you have access to the products you might need for whatever life brings. From simply making sure your family or business is financially secure in the event of your death, to helping you plan for retirement, in case you’re diagnosed with a terminal, critical or chronic illness, or just want to accumulate income for college funding or taking that trip you’ve always wanted.

Would your children still be able to fulfill their dreams of college? Even the simple daily activities add up, like buying groceries, auto expenses, and paying utilities.Ask yourself this: “If you were to unexpectedly die, how long would your family be able to maintain their lifestyle before having to make uncomfortable sacrifices?Insured husbands in the U.S. carry enough life insurance to replace their income for only 4.2 years and wives only 4.9 years.*Many experienced agents recommend having enough life insurance to replace income for a term of 7 to 10 years. The typical married couple would need to double their current coverage to be able to provide this level of protection for their spouse.*Chances are, even if you do have life insurance, you may not have enough. And what if you don’t even have any at all??Life insurance can provide your family with a reservoir of funds to keep them on track.*LIMRA International, 20081 Life and Health Foundation for Education, 2007

Growing old in America is not what it used to be, and in many ways, that’s a good thing. People are not only living longer, they have better educations – resulting in better health, higher income, and a higher standard of living in retirement.But there is a flip side to the coin, as Americans continue to live longer a new challenge presents itself: “What if I run out of retirement savings?”What would be your options? Go back to work? At what age?Chances are, at a later retirement age, working may be to physically demanding. And even if you are physically capable of working, is that really how you want to spend your final years in retirement?Fortunately, you have another option: Our insurance products offer features that can provide a stream of income for life, guaranteed.1The Pew Research Center’s Social & Demographic Trends Project, May 20092 Guarantees are dependent upon the claims-paying ability of the issuing company.
