Life Insurance What is a Life Insurance?
Life insurance is bought by someone in order to protect his or her family in case of death. This may be mainly bought by people who are the sole breadwinners of the family: without that money in the event of that person's death, the family couldn't survive. However, not many people truly know how life insurance policies work. Many people don't believe they can afford any life insurance and a few see it as an unneeded cost.
