What is Life Insurance

A time could come when death or a serious accident keeps you from providing for your family. Group Life insurance can help protect your family’s finances if something happens to you.

A death might leave your loved ones facing expenses they couldn’t pay without your income. Besides everyday bills, they could run into extra costs for things like final medical care or a funeral. If an accident left you with a serious injury, you might need to pay for special care and modified living arrangements.

How can Life insurance help make things easier for the people you care about?

  • Life insurance can be used to help protect the people who depend on your income by paying them an amount of money specified in the policy if you die.

These benefits can help pay for things like the mortgage, college tuition, child-care costs or daily living expenses. Usually, employers offer these two types of insurance together, but not always.


Over half of American households lack enough emergency savings to cover three months of expenses.

Karen’s Husband2

The $200,000 Karen received helped her pay for:

  • Funeral expenses
  • Remaining mortgage
  • Credit card and auto loan debt
  • Transporting remains to the mortuary
  • Living expenses for six months

Check with your employer to see if your employer’s policy from The Standard includes these benefits.
