Life Insurance
Life insurance can protect you, and those you care about, for a limited period or for your entire lifetime, up to age 100. It's an excellent way to protect your family and help secure their financial future if you're not around.

Life insurance is an agreement that you'll make a series of premium payments. In return, the insurance company will pay the death benefit to your beneficiary when you die. Your beneficiaries can use the death benefit to pay off debt or maintain their lifestyle. The amount and type of life insurance you choose depends on your goals and financial situation.

Critical Illness Insurance
Critical illness – such as life-threatening cancer, heart attack, and stroke – is one of the greatest threats to most people's desire to be financially independent. Recovery from a critical illness is often lengthy and expensive – involving the loss of personal wages and your ability to pay for care and treatment.

Critical Illness Insurance can protect you from the potentially devastating financial effects of critical illness. If a life-threatening illness occurs as defined in the policy, Critical Illness Insurance pays you a benefit to help protect your quality of life with the freedom to use the money however you choose.

Annuities
Annuities, unlike savings accounts and Certificates of Deposit (CDs), are tax-deferred savings vehicles. Under current tax laws, interest earned is not taxed until you withdraw the money. Annuities are available as a fixed product that pays a guaranteed interest rate declared by the Company or as a variable product where the contract owner decides how to allocate the annuity funds and bears the risk.

An annuity is a vehicle that returns the proceeds in an agreed-upon schedule. You make a single payment or series of payments, and the annuity value grows tax-deferred. At a point of your choosing, your annuity value is paid out to you; you also decide how to receive the money. One popular option is to arrange a stream of income payments that continue for the rest of your life.

Mutual Funds
Mutual funds are an excellent way to invest. There are a host of funds available that can meet your needs and fit within your financial plan.

A mutual fund is essentially a pool of stocks, bonds, or other invested assets. You and other investors with similar goals invest your money in a particular fund. A fund manager administers the combined dollars, deciding when to buy and sell fund assets based on market conditions. With a mutual fund, you hold shares in a greater variety of assets than you could by investing on your own. That spreads your risk and makes it easier to buy or sell your mutual fund shares.
