From the birth of a child to buying a new home … Happy times like these are what life is all about. They make you appreciate all you've done to provide for your loved ones and make you think about the legacy you want to leave them.

This video will show you how your Edward Jones financial advisor can help you figure out if you have what you need, or help you get started with your first life insurance policy from Edward Jones.

  • 84% of people say that life insurance is something most people need,1 but only 59% own some type of life insurance coverage.1
  • Most people estimate the cost of life insurance to be more than three times its actual cost but coverage for a healthy 30-year-old is as little as $14 a month, or $160 a year.2 That's a small amount when you consider that it can give you comfort knowing that those important to you will be taken care of.

Life Insurance needs change over time and with every life event, so whether you need your first policy, or want to review your current one, your Edward Jones financial advisor will work with you to use L-I-F-E to calculate your Liabilities, Income, Final Expenses and Education Savings needs. This will help you figure out how much and what type of coverage you need so your family can keep celebrating the good times…whatever the future brings.
