Life insurance. Why you’re never too young to start planning ahead.

Life insurance can do more than just provide benefits for children. With life insurance from Guardian, you can set up your beneficiaries in lots of different ways.

Why life insurance adds value to any benefits mix

While 74% of those with life insurance obtain it from their workplace,1 more than 60% have either no life insurance or less than industry recommended coverage amounts.2

People tend to overestimate the cost of life insurance. Most don’t realize that the average monthly premium can be as affordable as other expenses, such as the cost of a daily latte.

That can be appealing to millennials – less than 50 percent of whom own life insurance. While younger millennials are less likely to own a house or have children (two key life insurance ownership triggers), they may not realize that life insurance can stretch beyond traditional uses to support causes they care about, too.
