Insurance offers benefits that are both emotional and financial, from providing long-term security for our loved ones to replacing income if we can’t work.
50% of Americans today believe they have enough insurance coverage, which is a good thing. Yet many people remain underinsured. Some think insurance is too costly or complex. Some put it behind other financial priorities. Others just don’t like to think about it.
This insurance gap affects everyone. Adequate insurance can help make sure we don’t leave a financial burden on our families, and protect against the financial challenges of a disability or critical illness.
Prudential is committed to closing the insurance gap. We’re working to expand awareness of the real risks we face and create solutions that are easier to access, afford and understand.
Despite the financial and emotional benefits life insurance can provide, ownership is at a 50-year low. Prudential examines the reasons why so many Americans are underinsured and offers strategies for how financial professionals can help to close the gap.
