Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
Most people have no understanding of today's life insurance products and the valuable benefits they have to offer. In most cases, people don't fully understand how to protect themselves against the financial risks they face using life insurance. They are not informed about how life insurance can help protect their financial futures and the process of purchasing life insurance. This book walks the reader through the entire process in an easy to understand manner. This book is part of the FinancialVerse book series. These books present in a straight forward, easy to read style - what the reader can expect at each stage of their financial lives and offers ideas and resources to assist decision making. The FinancialVerse as author Harry Stout writes is made up of the knowledge, decisions, resources, risks, and tools that an individual encounters in life's financial journey. Each book has been written to help people reduce their levels of financial anxiety and stress. Authored by financial services leader Harry N. Stout, the FinancialVerse series provides a much needed roadmap of what to expect in our financial lives. This starts in our Adulting Stage, to working in the Striving Stage to the final or Fulfilling Stage of later life. Harry acts as your guide and spells out, in a very understandable way, what the risks, opportunities and key decisions the reader will need to make as they move through each stage. He explores what it is like to make decisions influenced by today's technology, economic trends, and work opportunities. Harry believes that most people, regardless of their family's economic background and level of education, do not fundamentally understand the key financial decisions and risks they will face in life. He believes improved financial education and literacy are needed as our lives become increasing more complex driven by technological innovation.
