Join Life Happens for a Twitter Chat to kick off Life Insurance Awareness Month. We’ll discuss new data that shows Americans are rethinking their finances and taking part in tough financial conversations in response to COVID-19.
The pandemic has been a reality check and made many of us seriously consider our mortality for the first time. We hope this chat serves as a reminder that life insurance can be a financial lifeline in times of uncertainty—and the best time to get life insurance is now. We anticipate plenty of activity from consumers, the media, insurance companies, agents and advisors.
Date: Wednesday, September 2 from 1:00-2:00pm EDT
