Health & Medical Insurance
EMS– Voluntary, tax-free supplemental benefits coupled with Tax-Free retirement income.
The future is unpredictable, but we do know three things typically occur in everyone’s life: critical illness that becomes a long-term income liability, early death, or you beat the odds and live too long.
Normally you have to choose which specific coverage you want to buy. Are you concerned about cancer, or heart problems, being injured in an accident, or premature death? If you choose wrong – you lose! Even if you buy them all and nothing happens – you’ve lost a lot of money that could have gone towards your retirement.
The Better Way– Particularly poignant for Commercial and Residential Real Estate Agents and Brokers. Instead of guessing and paying for multiple coverages for critical & chronic illness or critical injury. Under our, ONE single policy, your family gets money if you die prematurely, … a larger lump sum of cash if you have a critical illness, like Cancer or Heart Attack, …. a large lump sum, if you have a critical injury, … a monthly amount if you can’t perform 2 activities of daily living and require care at home or need to go to an Assisted Living Facility. Think about it…you no longer have to guess what to protect against. Our plan does it all and more. Life Insurance You Don’t Have To Die To Use. It’s voluntary, tax-free benefits coupled with Tax-Free retirement income.
I know and appreciate how hard Realtors have to work to prosper. Don’t wait for me to contact you. Feel free to reach out anytime to schedule a visit. Find out how to protect yourself, safeguard your family, with financial flexibility. Thorn Bigley – 214-212-8707 | firstname.lastname@example.org
