Lifeline Direct Insurance Services Now Offering Life Insurance for Active Duty Military with No War Zone Exclusion


San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 31, 2011

Working in any part of military entails lots of responsibilities. Military men and women adhere to the duty of protecting the country even if it means they might lose their life. Due to the danger and perilous circumstances that military service members face, getting an adequate life insurance policy is a necessity.

The military offers a Service members’ Group Life Insurance (SGLI) program, but it is a low cost insurance that covers the basics. SGLI benefits are sometimes not just enough cover the needs of the solder’s loved ones. SGLI only amounts to $ 50,000 up to $ 400,000 in coverage, which is definitely not adequate enough for the needs of soldiers that have families with young children, as well as soldiers who have substantial debts that will need to be paid off if they should die. Many service men and women worry about how their children will be able to afford college if they die. Securing their child’s future is one main reason why many military service members choose to have a supplementary private term life insurance. Many military service members want to supplement with another insurance plan, to ensure that their family will have plenty of money to cover their debts, their funeral expenses, and still have some left over to take care of their family for many years.

A supplementary private term life insurance is also ideal because the plans are affordable and military service members can be confident that their families will be compensated appropriately in case they die. While these men and women are away from their families on active duty, they will have the peace of mind knowing that their insurance coverage will be enough to adequately take care of the needs of their families.

Typically private insurance coverage can equal up to 20X the proposed isureds annual income and the military service member will be able to maintain the insurance even if they retire or leave the military. Lifeline Direct Insurance Services is working with multiple insurance carriers to ensure that the men and women of the armed forces and families alike are protected with generous and affordable term life insurance coverage.

Matrix Direct Releases Infographic on America’s Most Deadly Jobs


San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 10, 2012

Matrix Direct, a nationwide leader in direct-to-consumer term life insurance products, today released a new infographic showing which jobs put American workers at the greatest risk of dying.

The informative and innovative infographic can be seen by visiting http://www.matrixdirect.com/about-us/insurance-education/is-your-job-killing-you. By sharing the infographic on Social Media or blogs, consumers can help Matrix Direct spread the word about Americas most dangerous jobs.

The new infographic illustrates that work-related accidents and mishaps are a leading cause of death in the United States every year. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 4,547 Americans died on the job in 2010. Thats 23% less than 2000, when 5,915 people died at work, but still an alarming number of work-related deaths.

The statistics also mean that in 2010, about 3.5 workers died for every 100,000 people who are employed in the United States. While the odds of dying on the job are not as great as being killed in a car accident or in other more common causes of death, work-related deaths still claim thousands of Americans every year.

Top 10 Most Dangerous Jobs

According to the U.S. government statistics, the most dangerous jobs in 2010 were (listed in descending order, with the most dangerous on top):

Fisherman

Logger

Airline Pilot

Farmer/Rancher

Mining Machine Operator

Roofer

Sanitation Worker

Truck Driver/Deliveryman

Industrial Machine Repairman

Police Officer

Help Protect a Financial Future

People who work in one of the top 10 most dangerous jobs or in other professions that are equally as dangerous do have options. And it doesnt have to mean getting a new and safer job, either.

Purchasing a term life insurance policy can be a great way to help financially provide for a spouse, child, or other loved ones long after a policyholder dies in a work-related accident. For less money than most people spend on coffee or cable television each month, workers can help protect their familys financial future with affordable and reliable term life insurance.

In some cases, workers in dangerous professions may be excluded from buying term life insurance, due to the higher-than-normal risks of death associated with their work. For those workers, an Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance policy might provide some type of financial protection against serious injury or death in on-the-job accidents.
