Can somebody with HIV get Life Insurance?

Yes! Healthy people living with HIV are now eligible to apply for life insurance. Life insurance companies are coming around to the notion that being HIV Positive does not hold the same mortality that it once did. Previously, buying Life Insurance if you have the HIV virus was next to impossible. Practically all life insurance applications would ask whether the potential client had ever tested positive for the HIV virus. If answered yes, this was an automatic decline for new life insurance policies.

As time goes by, and medical advances continue, the HIV virus is now being treated as a condition in the eyes of some insurance companies. More specifically, as insurers began to underwrite these types of life insurance risks, they were extremely rigid and based their acceptance or declination on test results such as the client’s CD4 viral count. What is being found is that a more holistic approach to underwriting is presenting good risks for life insurance companies and more opportunities for people living with HIV to obtain coverage.

The key component being examined now is whether individuals have their treatment under control. Are they taking care of themselves, eating well, exercising, taking their medications as prescribed by their physicians and keeping an eye on their overall health and well-being. If you or someone you know is living with HIV and wants to get Life Insurance, please have them contact us for a private consultation.

Life insurance products currently available include Term life insurance, Universal Life Insurance, Whole Life Insurance and even Group Term Life insurance. Let’s all be happy with the progress we have seen with treatments and the goal of putting an end to the entire HIV epidemic by 2030.

Meet Debbie.
Debbie is going to share the story of Bob.

Bob was a man from a large family, with a lot of drive, and successful in business and at home life.
When Bob’s father died, he left his family penniless and Bob decided that he would never leave his own family in that same state of affairs. He made sure that he had insurance all of his life and was able to make it have a cash value that could be borrowed at a decent rate. This story is a real example of why it is so important to have life insurance.

Think Before You Act

I watched a report on television tonight about drugs and alcohol abuse. It wasn’t just one of those statistical reports that spouted off mindless numbers and socioeconomic causes. The show interviewed numerous different people:

Current addicts
Former addicts
People currently in rehab centers
People in hospitals due to permanent damage from substance abuse
People in jail due to killing someone because of substance abuse
Friends, family, and loved ones affected by users/abusers

I have experienced people I love go down the road of addiction. Sometimes an intervention worked and other times it didn’t. This show reminded me of that. It was painful and sad to watch, but also a major eye opener. Addiction or abuse of drugs and alcohol aren’t the only issues that plague the health and wellbeing of those closest to us. A loved one that you knew at one time could have been perfectly healthy and on the right track and the next thing you know, they have made a sudden decision that altered their life forever. While abusing drugs and alcohol is no joke, this sudden shift from the right track to the wrong one can be the unfortunate case in some many other aspects in life. It only takes one small movement or ripple to cause a massive wave in our own lives and in the lives of those around us. Sometimes we fail to look at the big picture and don’t truly underst and cause and effect.

Take a minute to reevaluate the decisions you think you are going to make today or don’t be so quick to leap before looking. Your life is so much more important than that – and so much more important to those that love you than you can ever imagine.

Only Human

Things in our lives are constantly evolving, changing. It’s inevitable. There are many people who crack under the pressure and stress of change, making complicated situations even worse and slowing the growth process.

We currently have numerous opportunities afforded to us that our ancestors quite possibly couldn’t even comprehend. I think those “perks” make the wheels of change turn even faster than they once did. Life is fast-paced and hectic. We often convince ourselves that we have the strength and endurance of superhero. Certainly we can argue that we’re all superhero material in our own way, but we still have to remind ourselves that failure can and will happen. We are only human after all. Sometimes change comes in the form of a sudden event – illness, car accident or any event that can turn life upside-down in the blink of an eye. When those moments strike, we don’t want you worrying about ANYTHING other than getting back on your feet.

Take a moment and look at life insurance through a different lens. Buying life insurance doesn’t have to be stressful. We underst and the struggles of comparing life insurance companies and policies, because we’ve been there. It can be confusing and frustrating, which is why we are here for you now. We wanted to make it easy for you to feel financially protected and we have done just that. We can offer protection whether you’re old or young, sick or healthy, male or female, gay or straight, married or single.

No matter what, we’ve got you covered.

Don’t Be Afraid

Are you afraid to talk about life insurance?  Do you have life insurance?

Often our blogs are loosely related to insurance, because we want to be able to relate them to your everyday life. 

YOUR LIFE.

You know, that gift you were given and hopefully making the most of every single day. 

Sadly, we have lost many friends over the past few years, because they no longer viewed each day as a gift.  They chose partying over more responsible priorities and unfortunately, overdose, poisoning, and fatal accidents happened.

Whenever someone you love dies, you will always feel like they were taken away from you too soon.  In my personal experience, it has been hard for me to accept losing so many people in my life to such careless and tragic acts.  It has been even more difficult to watch the victims of these deaths – the loved ones and families – deal with mourning AND the financial aftermath. 

So many people go without life insurance and when they are taken too soon and/or without notice, there is absolutely nothing to help their loved ones maintain their st andard of living, cover the bills, or even cover funeral costs.  Don’t be afraid to discuss your life insurance needs with your loved ones or to contact us to get all the information you need.  It is never too early to set yourself up for the future or to make sure you loved ones will be taken care of no matter what happens.

Plan and Prepare

There are numerous ways you can plan, prepare, and do to ensure a long and healthy life.

*Eat healthy – Veggies, fruit, whole grains, lean protein, low fat dairy *Find a physical activity – CrossFit, basketball, football, baseball, running, kickboxing, boot camp, muai thai, MMA or other martial arts, even walking with a friend on a consistent basis). Pick one. *Find your bliss or mix and match – he options are endless. *Put your head in a good place mentally – the power of positive thinking; what you believe you attract *Choose happiness – no matter what life throws at you, choose to find a piece of good in all things

New information is thrown at us daily in regards to ways we can learn about new tricks to staying healthy and living a long life.  However, sometimes, fate steps in and takes the reins for a moment or two, often mangling our plans in extreme ways. There’s nothing you can do to stop the inevitable, but you can plan appropriately. Again, the key word being PLAN.

We know that it is hard for some people to be comfortable with the idea of purchasing life insurance. Knowing the inevitable can still be a hard pill to swallow – but you have to.

You can do everything possible to live a healthy life, but you still have to take the extra steps to protect yourself and more importantly, protect your family.

Life insurance, disability insurance, critical illness insurance ( and more) are all polices you should make part of your entire plan. Knowing you are living a healthy life isn’t enough to plan and prepare for the future. Financial planning and protection must be part of your daily health plan as well.

No More 9-5

Our lives change daily and sometimes super-fast and dramatically. It isn’t as ‘easy’ as it was back in the day. The 9-5 lifestyle of the man working and the woman at home has changed. Yes, it still happens, but it is not as common as it once was. It has become more common for both parents to work outside the home, because of the increase in the cost of living and the need to cover all expenses. Trying to cover basic needs can be overwhelming. Keeping a roof over your head, gas in the car and food in the fridge is a herculean task in itself, let alone trying to afford private school tuition for your kids or paying off college loans or even simply building up the savings account so you can cover unexpected costs like repairs for your car.

Imagine if you didn’t have all the income you needed to cover all your expenses. Imagine of you were suddenly left without the second income – or worse, left without your spouse due to a sudden and unexpected death. The stress of thinking how hard that would be on your loved ones is why we talk so often about the importance of having a life insurance policy that will support your family when you die. There is a lot of comfort in knowing your family won’t have to struggle through a financial mess, that your kids will be taken care of, that your small business will still survive.

There are plenty of options when it comes to your life insurance. We offer a very personalized service – as personalized as you want. Whether you speak to use directly purchase online, we hope you get a life insurance policy sooner rather than later.

“Fall” Into a Policy

Just like that…September is over.

Bring on PUMPKIN TIME!

I LOVE October. The weather finally starts to cool off (a little), the leaves change, and pumpkin foods fill the stores.  Costume and c andy time will come at the end of the month, but until then it is all about fall weather and pumpkins for me.  Beside Halloween, it is pretty much the last month of relaxation and mellow time before the holiday frenzy sets in.  It is probably a really good time to create your monthly to-do list and re-prioritize.  The more projects, err ands, and such that you complete during October, the less stress you will experience during November and December.  After all, who doesn’t want to feel more focus when planning the holidays and doing all that shopping?

If you didn’t put this on your list at the beginning of September, it is no time to put it at the top of your to-do list for October – IT IS TIME TO GET A LIFE INSURANCE POLICY.

Come on…no more procrastinating or excuses. There is absolutely no reason for you to continue without a policy.  Do it today and get it out of the way.  You will have the rest of the month to work through your remaining to-do list and can do it without the stress of worry about a life insurance policy.
