According to LIMRA, a company that conducts research about all things life insurance, 9 out of 10 Americans believe life insurance is a necessity. However, only 70% of eligible Americans opt for life insurance. Why do Americans value something as a necessity but fail to make the moves to acquire it?
First, we are too busy spending our time focusing on our “wants.” We are constantly purchasing things we do not necessarily need, like those new pair of tennis shoes that have “extra support” or the latest smartphone that we “can’t live without.” Our frivolous spending can be partly attributed to the overexposure of advertisements and a consumerist culture. In the 1970’s we saw about 500 ads a day, whereas in 2013, we are seeing over 5,000 day. This bombardment of ads has an effect of individuals ultimately blending the “need” category with the “want” category.
Another big reason many individuals do not purchase life insurance is because they are extremely busy. Traveling to and from work, taking the kids to soccer practice, and paying the bills are all important. We know you have an endless to-do list, and the process of getting life insurance sounds time consuming and bothersome.
