Assuring an indelible legacy

When the unexpected happens, lives change, but memories indelibly remain. And although you can’t predict what tomorrow will bring, you can help control to protect your family’s financial future with life insurance from Great-West.

Individual life insurance is simply a contract between a life insurance company and an individual. In its most basic form, a person makes payments to a life insurance company today, which agrees to distribute future benefits to the insured’s loved ones in the future upon the death of the insured.

There are many types of insurance, and it can be a bit challenging to choose the type of policy that fits your situation. Your financial professional can help you with this important financial decision. Here is some basic information to help you get started.
