  • Is your current disability plan adequate to meet your income needs if you can no longer work?
  • Have you purchased the maximum additional disability insurance available to make up the shortfall?
  • Will your survivors have adequate income in the event of your death?
  • Will your life insurance be enough to pay off the mortgage or fund your children's college education?
  • Are you paying too much for life insurance?
  • Is it more affordable if you purchase life insurance independently rather than through an employer?
  • Should you keep your term insurance or convert it to a permanent policy?

  • Is your health insurance plan the best plan available for you and your family?
  • If you're leaving your employer, have you made arrangements for continued medical insurance?
  • Do you have the right automobile insurance coverage for your situation?
  • Do you know how to choose the optimal auto insurance deductible and liability limits?
  • If you're age 55 or above, have you determined whether you need long-term care insurance?
