17 Loves Worth Insuring

by Amanda Prischak on February 8, 2017


Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, Presidents’ Day—February may be the shortest month of the year, but there is a lot going on.

You can also add Insure Your Love Month to that list. The nonprofit organization Life Happens creates and coordinates the campaign each year in recognition of the number one that people buy life insurance:Because they love someone and want to make sure they’d be financially protected if something unfortunate happened.

When people think of who they’d protect with life insurance, they typically think of kids and spouses. But there are many other people—and nonpeople!—who can benefit from life insurance. Here’s a list of “loves” that can be protected or benefit from a life insurance policy.

  1. Your husband

  2. Your wife

  3. Your domestic partner

  4. Your child

  5. Someone who’s like a child to you

  6. Your stepchild

  7. Your grandchild

  8. Your niece

  9. Your nephew

  10. Your mom

  11. Your dad

  12. Someone who was like a mom or dad to you

  13. Your favorite waitress who could really use a windfall

  14. Your place of worship

  15. Your favorite charity

  16. Your alma mater

  17. A trust that can benefit your pet

If someone or something on this list could benefit from life insurance protection, now is the time to talk about how to insure your love. An insurance professional like an Erie Insurance agent can tell you about options that work with your life and budget.
