IF A CHILD, SPOUSE, LIFE PARTNER OR A PARENT DEPENDS ON YOU AND YOUR INCOME, YOU NEED LIFE INSURANCE
There are two major types of life insurance—term and whole life. Whole life is sometimes called permanent life insurance, and it encompasses several subcategories, including traditional whole life, universal life, variable life and variable universal life.
Term Insurance is the simplest form of life insurance. It pays only if death occurs during the term of the policy, which is usually from one to 30 years. There are two basic types of term life insurance policies: level term and decreasing term.
Whole life or permanent insurance pays a death benefit whenever you die—even if you live to 100! There are three major types of whole life or permanent life insurance—traditional whole life, universal life, and variable universal life, and there are variations within each type.

What is disability income insurance? One myth about disability income insurance is that it is only for rare, catastrophic accidents. In reality, many rely on these policies to cover the income they’ve lost due to relatively common conditions such as heart disease and arthritis.
Disability insurance pays a portion of a worker's salary if that worker becomes disabled and is unable to work at his or her job.

The truth: 70 percent of Americans older than age 65 will need some form of long-term care.
Long-term care is a range of services and support for your personal care needs. Most long-term care isn't medical care. Instead, most long-term care is help with basic personal tasks of everyday life, sometimes called activities of daily living.
MEDICARE AND LTC:
Medicare does not cover long term care, as stated in the official Medicare handbook. Millions of Medicare enrollees must pay for long-term care services (such as personal assistance at home, assisted living, and nursing home care) entirely from their own income and savings.
