  • Texas – What you need to know about life insurance

    Billy R Martin Insurance Agency can help you select the best life insurance coverage for your needs. There are several different types of life insurance products available – the most common include:

     

    • Term Life Insurance

    Term life insurance provides protection for a specified period of time. If you do not currently have life insurance, term can be a good place to start. It’s generally less expensive than permanent (whole) life insurance, and is available in varying time periods with fixed premiums from a one year (annual renewable term) to 20-year (level term) period. Furthermore, term life insurance is sometimes convertible to permanent coverage, providing you with flexibility as your needs change.

     

    • Whole Life Insurance

    Whole life insurance is a form of permanent life insurance that remains in force for your entire lifetime, provided premiums are paid as specified in the policy. Whole life insurance can be an investment opportunity, as many whole life insurance policies also build cash value over time.

     

    • Universal Life Insurance

    Universal life is a form of permanent life insurance characterized by its flexible premiums, face amounts and unbundled pricing structure. Universal life can build cash value, which earns an interest rate that may adjust periodically, but is usually guaranteed not to fall below a certain percentage.

     

    So what type of life insurance is best for you? Talk with the team at Billy R Martin Insurance Agency today at: 903-581-8191, and we can assist in identifying the best protection for you.

  • What are the advantages of life insurance

    Having the right life insurance is essential to planning for your present, and your future. Not only can life insurance provide assurance for your family after you are gone, many life insurance options offer other benefits and investment opportunities you can take advantage of while you are living.

     

    Advantages of the life insurance death benefit: When you pass away, your life insurance provides income tax-free money to your named beneficiary or beneficiaries that can be used to pay funeral expenses, debt, tuition, estate taxes or virtually any financial need. Your policy can help provide security for your business security as well, by enabling partners to buy out the interests of a deceased partner and prevent a forced liquidation.

     

    Advantages of Living Benefits: The cash value growth of a permanent (whole) life insurance policy is tax-deferred, meaning you do not pay taxes on the growth of cash value, unless money is withdrawn. Loans or withdrawals can be taken against the cash value of a permanent life insurance policy to help with expenses, such as college tuition or the down payment on a home.

     

    The right life insurance coverage for each and every one of our neighbors in Texas is unique – talk with the Billy R Martin Insurance Agency team today to find out how to protect your family and your future with the right life insurance.

  • How much home insurance is right for you in Texas

    Life insurance is a crucial step in planning for your future. Not only can life insurance provide assurance for your family if you are no longer around, there are life insurance policies that offer benefits while you are living.

     

    Based in Tyler, at the Billy R Martin Insurance Agency, we understand the life insurance needs of our customers.

     

    The necessity of life insurance depends on your own personal and financial needs. At Billy R Martin Insurance Agency we assist and help you determine the type and amount of life insurance that is appropriate for you and your family. Generally, you should consider life insurance if:

     

    • You have a spouse
    • You have dependent children
    • You have an aging parent or a physically challenged relative who depends on you for support
    • Your retirement savings are not enough to insure your spouse’s future against a rising cost of living
    • You have a sizable estate
    • You own a business

     

    Additional benefits of life insurance other than providing for your loved ones, in case something happens to you include:

     

    • The cash value earned and borrowed from a permanent life insurance policy can be used to help with large expenses, such as a college education or down payment on a home.
    • The growth of a cash-value policy is tax-deferred – you do not pay taxes on the cash value accumulation until you withdraw funds from the policy.
    • Life insurance can be used to cover funeral expenses and pay estate taxes – consult your tax advisor agent in Tyler for more information.
