Meet R&R's Dedicated Life Insurance Team

With only 44% of US households holding life insurance policies, the decrease in coverage comes at a time when premiums for term life insurance are significantly lower than a decade ago.  Approximately 11 million households with children under the age of 18 are living without this safety net.

Unlike home and auto insurance, life insurance is voluntary.  Too often this leads to procrastination in purchasing.  Many people overlook the need for life insurance until it is too late; if a health condition is uncovered without insurance, the life insurance premiums are significantly higher.  And many times prices are out of reach at that point.

R&R has put together a team of life insurance experts with over 200 years of experience to better serve our clients.  This team will have an increased focus on our wide range of life insurance products to best suit your needs. 

Stop procrastinating and contact one of our knowledgebrokers today!
