Life Insurance and Financial Services

To put it simply, life insurance may be one of the most important purchases you’ll ever make. Life is unpredictable and you have no idea when you’ll need insurance. That’s why it’s crucial to plan ahead. Life Insurance is a cornerstone of any responsible financial plan.

Like many other types of insurance, your coverage needs will be different based on your unique circumstances. An established family or business person will have different considerations than a first-time homebuyer or new parent looking for coverage for the first time.

After analyzing your needs, we review life insurance policies to find you the best price for the coverage that fits your needs. MetzWood serves as a broker for more than 30 of the finest insurance companies, allowing us access to competitive pricing, robust product offerings, and varying underwriting guidelines.

Q: Is it a good idea to buy additional life insurance on top of the coverage provided by my employer?

A: Yes, this is typically always a good idea. Coverage from an employer is generally one or two times your base income. For many, this would not be enough to cover a mortgage, final expenses, and a year of income replacement. It is important that you have a coverage layer on top of your employer-sponsored coverage. Additionally, when you retire or leave the company, you will lose this coverage.

Q: Can I buy more than one life insurance policy?

A: Yes! Many people will have a large term policy with a small permanent policy so that they can accomplish different goals.
