Planning for your family’s future: Is your life insurance sufficient?

It is important to periodically review your life insurance to make sure that you have a policy that will stay in-force long enough to accomplish your estate planning objectives. Recent actions by the life insurance industry to increase costs associated with some policies make it very important to have your insurance reviewed.

Consider if you really need life insurance or if your policy is in danger of imploding. Strauss Troy attorneys can review your current life insurance and assist you if there is a problem with your policy. We can also assist you in evaluating how your policy fits into your current estate plan to ensure that your objectives in providing for your family are met.
