Life Insurance Made Simple: Keep It Simple

Published: May 2016

Video Transcript

LIVE ACTION SEGMENT — ACTOR PLAYED

John stands triumphantly at the kitchen table with a mirror and sketch pad like he's doing a self-portrait. Julie walks by and stops.

Julie: Heyyyy… (laughs) Whassup?

John: I've been thinking that rather than a tombstone, I'd like to go with a stone statue monument.

Julie: (amused) That sounds pretty expensive… Julius… Caesar…

John: (dismissing her joke) I've gone ahead and set us up with a simple life insurance policy, so the kids don't have to worry about funeral costs. John shows Julie a rough sketch of the monument: him in a heroic stance riding a majestic battle horse. (we need to make a really funny sketch prop)

John: Whatta ya think?

Julie: (fighting back giggles) Wow, that's… impressive.

John: The statue… ?

Julie: Yeee-ah, and the life insurance thing, too.

Sometimes simple is better. John and Julie don't want to burden each other—or their kids—with their funeral costs and related final expenses. All they want is protection that covers the basics. A simple and affordable smaller whole life policy can be designed to cover the essentials. With whole life insurance, the money paid out doesn't go through probate court and is income-tax free, so loved ones easily receive the money without delays, taxes, or extra legal costs.

John sculpts a horse statue out of butter sticks or mashed potatoes—a la Close Encounters of the Third Kind—with butter boxes/instant mashed potato boxes littered around (MUSIC TONES FROM "CLOSE ENCOUNTERS."

Julie shakes her head.

Julie: I'm good.
