Whole Life Insurance

Whole Life Insurance in PA and Beyond

Whole Life insurance is more than just an insurance solution, it is an investment, and one that can be borrowed against. Although whole life is more expensive than term life, unlike a term policy, it is a product that allows you to gain equity. The eventual equity ownership of your whole life policy means that you can keep it for its intended purpose of providing life insurance, or you can choose to use it for other reasons. For example, you can borrow against your equity in a whole life policy at predetermined interest rates. Additionally, you can sell most whole life policies to investors if you prefer to benefit from their cash value during your lifetime. This flexibility in addition to offering robust life insurance makes Whole Life an important product to consider as part of both your retirement and life planning.

Disability Insurance

Individual Disability and Supplemental Disability Insurance

Are you relying on your employer’s group disability coverage to maintain your income in the event of an injury? Are you a business owner with no means of income if you are unable to work? If so, you may be significantly underinsured and in need of disability insurance. Disability insurance provided by an employer may be helpful, but this coverage will commonly cap at just a percentage of your working income. This means that between 30-40% of your expected income can disappear if you get injured off the job.

By working with our team of knowledgeable and caring insurance brokers, you can obtain reasonably priced disability insurance quotes that can either cover your entire income or fill in the income gap left by your limited group disability plan. Our team will be able to work with you by reviewing your existing group plan coverage and understanding its limitations related to stipulations like coverage length and income percentage covered. We will tailor an individual disability policy that fills in any potential gaps. Though we hope you never get injured off the job, we all know that injuries can occur to even the most careful people. Having adequate disability income coverage can help you avoid a financially stressful recovery. If you are interested in acquiring a disability insurance policy, you can contact Hilling-Pfeffer today to begin the complimentary quoting process.

Final Expense Insurance

Unlike life insurance coverage, which is still an important purchase, Final Expense Insurance is designed to pay out promptly (typically within 24-48 hours), which helps your family avoid paying out of pocket when you pass away. This coverage is not intended to replace life insurance completely, but it can be an affordable solution that will help a family financially endure the passing of a loved one.
