Now. more than 100 companies, including State Farm, use this time to actively promote the need for life insur- ance. If a primary bread winner dies with- out life insurance, there is no guaran- tee that loved ones will be able to real- ize their dreams or continue living as to which they are accustomed. Life insur- ance is an important part of a sound financial plan which helps ensure that college, mortgages and bills won't be neglected. Make a call today and talk to an insur- ance professional who can answer ques- tions and help meet your life insurance needs. There are differeh't policies to fit a variety of budgets. The need for life insurance is that impor- tant. For the last several years, Presidents and governors have issued declarations about life insurance awareness; des- ignating September as Life Insurance Awareness Month. But why devote an entire month? Having one month dedicated to life insurance provides opportunities to inform people about the need for life insurance and the consequences of having inadequate or no coverage. Recent studies by Life Insurance Marketing and Research Association (LIMRA) International revealed 68 mil- lion adult Americans have no life insurance. Many Americans with life insurance coverage have far less than amounts recommended by experts. Working with State Farm, the Life and Health Foundation for Education (LIFE) designated September as Life UMC Choir Resumes Mt, Pulaski United Methodist Church's Choir will resume their season of singing during UMC worship services Sunday, September 13.
