Life Insurance Awareness Month (LIAM) is in September – a month devoted to public education and awareness on the need and impact of Life Insurance.
While you may know Anthony Anderson from his hit TV show black-ish and as host of Eating America, this September he is taking on a new role as the 2015 national spokesperson for Life Insurance Awareness Month. While growing up in Compton, Anthony remembers his parents not having much; however, they did have Mary. Coined, ‘The Insurance Lady’, Mary visited the family’s home throughout the year to review and update his parents’ life insurance policies. There was great emphasis on the importance of planning for the future by having Life Insurance. “Even on their limited income, my mom and dad instilled upon all of us the importance of planning for the future and the fact that tomorrow isn’t promised to anyone,” Anderson says.
Tragedy struck Anthony’s family twice is a short period of time – first his brother in an accident and then his dad to diabetes. “It was rough getting through those deaths, but the fact that they both had life insurance made it so much easier,” said Anthony.
Life insurance is extremely important to discuss with your family, especially because it isn’t meant for you—it is for those you leave behind. You work hard to make sure you can provide for, protect, and pave the way for your loved ones; however, in the event you’re unable to fill that role – whether it’s due to sickness, injury or loss – life insurance gives surviving dependents the financial freedom to continue down the path you started.
