Regardless of where you are in your career and how successful your practice becomes, there will always be things you can’t control. Between your job, caring for kids and keeping yourself mentally and physically fit, there’s not a lot of time to worry about life’s great "what ifs".
- What if I’m diagnosed with an illness?
- What if I become disabled and can’t work as a lawyer?
- What if something happens to my practice?
- What if my investments tank?
- What if I die?
These are all common stressors that come up throughout your working life and well into retirement. Your Lawyers Financial advisor can help you tackle each one as part of a comprehensive household financial plan that allows you to stop thinking about “what if” and focus on "what I can do now".
Reduce stress at every stage of life
Here’s how an insurance plan can anticipate your needs and protect you from life’s unknowns.
|What if...||We've got a plan for that||How does it work?|
|I'm diagnosed with an illness and can't work for a long time?||Our critical illness insurance policies cover 25 of the most common illnesses that could require you to take time off for treatment and recovery.||You’re eligible to receive a one-time tax-free payout as soon as you’re diagnosed with a qualifying condition. You and your family can spend that money any way you choose.
Learn more about what to expect when you’re unexpectedly ill.
|I become disabled and can’t work as a lawyer?||Lawyers Financial disability insurance can provide monthly income from now to retirement if you can’t work as a lawyer. You can’t be forced to take another occupation.||Once it’s determined that you can’t work as a lawyer, you receive an income based on a percentage of your salary every month until you return to work or reach the age of retirement.
See for yourself how disability does not mean downfall.
|Something happens to my practice?||From flooded floors to cybercrime, you can easily protect your practice from unexpected losses, damage or data theft.||Your Lawyers Financial advisor will help you assemble the right combination of insurance policies to keep you safe and get you back in business as fast as possible.|
My investments tank right before I need the money?
Of course, you want your investments to grow and you expect the money to be there when you need it.
|Early in your career, your lifetime earning potential is your greatest asset. Term life insurance can replace your income so that your family can carry on without having to sell assets.||You buy life insurance in a series of terms (typically, 10-year increments) and can renew your policy up to the age of 80. If you die while you’re covered, the policy pays a tax-free benefit to your beneficiaries.|
Add it all up
When you stop worrying about “what if” and plan ahead for life’s unknowns with a thoughtfully prepared insurance policy, you can:
- Reduce stress: Feel good about checking insurance off your list and worry less because you’ve got a plan to protect your family and your firm.
- Lock in your legacy: Life insurance, particularly permanent coverage, ensures that you can leave an inheritance to your children. So there’s less pressure to stockpile money.
Let your Lawyers Financial advisor help you plan for all the “what ifs” early in your career, so you can focus on your practice and your life.
