Term insurance¹ provides coverage for a set period of time and is usually less expensive. It provides the greatest amount of coverage for the lowest initial cost. It's a good choice for your temporary needs or if your funds are limited. Permanent insurance, which includes Whole Life¹ and Universal Life¹, is useful when you want to cover a long-term need like income for a spouse, "inheritance" for children or end of life expenses. Permanent insurance costs more initially, but can accumulate cash value. It's difficult to say exactly which kind of Life insurance is better because the type of coverage that's right for you all depends on your individual circumstances and financial goals. Often, a combination of Term and Permanent insurance is the right solution. FL-04 09-13

    I really don't know much about Michael Hardman. I was referred because of the other man not giving me the time of day. I would say he would need to reach out to me if I like his service or not because right now I just call the office direct.

  • Rating 5.0
    I really appreciated Mike meeting me at my home as per my convenience. He kept in touch with me throughout the process and answered any concerns I had and that too.... immediately. It will be nice having an agent to answer my questions at moment's notice. Another convenience will be that it will renew every six months to provide flexibility to review the policy twice a year.
