Writing that post the other day really did get me thinking about life insurance. It's something I've only ever had if a company my husband or I worked for offered it. But life is different now with 3 children and driving along narrow streets on the opposite side of the car and the road.
It seems the older we get, the more difficult it seems to be to get insured at reasonable rates, but I've recently discovered Modex.com. Modex provides instant quotes for life insurance. There are many sites like this around, but I found two things about Modex to be superior: The first, and most important, is that they don't sell your email to a zillion third parties. They are actually insurance agents that help you find the best policy by comparing them for you. You will not start getting calls and emails from twenty people a day for the next 5 years!
The other great thing is that it doesn't matter how whether you're 20 or 70 years old. Specialized agents at Modex work to get life insurance for seniors at the best rates possible. That's a wonderful thing.
I plan on living until I'm 103, so my life insurance will likely benefit my grandchildren, but the important thing is that I have it. Insurance is assurance that they'll be taken care of and I can have a proper goodbye party.
