Why Get Life Insurance

A Love Song for Real Life

Celebrate the love of your life with the real reasons we don't ever want to live without them. "I Can't Live Without You" may sound romantic, but it is a sentiment grounded in reality for most families.

I Can't Live Without You

We asked the Holderness family to explore all of the things families do to just survive daily life. From car pools to laundry to mowing the lawn, it's more than most couples can keep up with. But what would happen if we didn't have our partner to share the workload? It's a scary thought for sure. But the Holderness family helps us take a lighter look at all that we do to keep our families together and running smoothly. “I Can't Live Without You,” is a tribute to all families navigating life together. We celebrate all that you do for your family. Join in the conversation on our Twitter or Facebook page by sharing what you wouldn't want to live without by using the hashtag #LoveAndProtect.

While none of us want to think about life without our partner, the truth is that if you have a family, it's the responsible thing to do to plan for the 'what ifs' in life. So while you're here, we hope you'll take a minute to make sure your family is protected - so that you can enjoy and embrace today.

Resources for Real Families in Real Life

Like most people, your paycheck provides the resources to pay the bills and hopefully allows for a little extra to set aside for an emergency, your child's education and your own retirement. And the fact is, most of us rely on two incomes these days to make ends meet. 

So with this much riding on your income, how would the people you love survive if you died tomorrow and your paychecks were to suddenly stop? What are you doing to prepare for this very real and unpredictable reality?

So with this much riding on your income, how would the people you love survive if you died tomorrow and your paychecks were to suddenly stop? Most of us wouldn't think twice about insuring our homes or vehicles, but too many of us are going without the protection of a life insurance policy, and putting the people who depend on us for financial support at risk.

At Protective Life, we've been helping families get the life insurance coverage they need for more than a century at a price that considers every budget. Here are some helpful resources designed with families in mind:

Love and Life Insurance

Families depend on one another for all types of things. Picking up the kids from school, mowing the lawn, grocery shopping - you name it! The Holderness family is no exception. With so much love, the Holderness Family reminds us how we rely on each other to get through the days. While the Holderness Family teamed up with Protective Life to take a humorous look at this dynamic in their new video, there is also a more serious side. If something happened to you or your significant other, would your family be able to continue at the same level of financial stability? For most, this would not be the case. That is why life insurance is so important for families to consider, for the unexpected turns in life. Enjoy the Holderness Family's video, “I Can't Live Without You” for a chuckle and a smile, but we must also consider the reality of the situation and how that can be remedied with coverage from Protective Life.
