Four ways life insurance protects the people you love

You might be surprised how The AIA Trust life insurance coverage from New York Life Insurance Company can provide for you and your family.

Picture this: You come home from a hard day at work. You discover dinner on the table and your son has made a hand drawn card that reads “I love you.” Suddenly, your day isn’t so hard any more.

Who are the people you love? Your children, mother, significant other, husband, sister—the people who make you smile, the ones who support you—the ones whose futures you want to be bright. These are the people life insurance was made for.

The AIA Trust has worked with New York Life to create life insurance coverage that works hard for you and yours. Because while you can’t put a price on love, providing for the ones you care about most—when it’s needed most—makes all the difference.

  1. Provide income for loved ones—when they really need it. Life insurance can’t replace you, but it can replace some or all of your income if you were to die. In the immediate term, it can cover the cost of funeral expenses, pay off debts and help defray day-to-day expenses like food, clothing and housing. Longer term, life insurance can help finance college tuition—and even ensure your spouse or partner’s retirement dreams are realized. Life insurance is about enhancing the lives of your loved ones both now and in the future.
  2. Meet essential household needs.Think of all the work parents do at home to run a household and care for the family. It’s invaluable—and insuring all they do is, too. Life insurance can pay for vital household services—like childcare, transportation and chores—to make the day-to-day lives of those you hold dear more secure in the event a provider is no longer around.
  3. Gain benefits you can use—during your lifetime.When life puts unforeseen challenges in your way, you need all the help you can get. Optional riders can help you customize the right type of coverage for you. And since The AIA Trust life insurance coverage was designed with people like you in mind, there are features built in which may address your needs.
  • The Waiver of Premium rider lets you continue coverage without paying the premium, if you become seriously ill or disabled and are unable to earn an income to pay the premium.
  • The Automatic Benefit Increase feature increases your coverage each year (typically according to a fixed increment) to keep pace with your anticipated changes in income and needs. Your premium costs adjust accordingly, but you won’t need to undergo additional medical underwriting on the new coverage amount.
  1. Leave a lasting legacy. Life insurance can create a financial legacy—funding the futures and fueling the dreams of the people of your choosing. From supporting a favorite nonprofit to starting a scholarship program, the legacy you leave behind is all up to you. But you need adequate funds to make a real difference. Life insurance can provide the assets you need to improve the lives of others in your name.
