Life Insurance Awareness Month

September is designated as Life Insurance Awareness Month in the United States. It aims to educate consumers about the importance of life insurance and its role in safeguarding family financial security.

The global pandemic has heightened people’s awareness of the fragility of life and the importance of being prepared for unforeseen circumstances. According to research by LIMRA, 31% of Americans stated that they are more likely to purchase life insurance due to COVID-19. This proportion is even higher in various demographic groups, including millennials (44%), African Americans (38%), and Hispanics (37%).

Studies indicate that individuals with life insurance are more likely to feel financially secure. Nearly two-thirds of insured Americans express a sense of financial security, compared to less than half among those without insurance.

Overall, 41% of Americans indicate that they do not have sufficient life insurance coverage. Several underserved markets have greater insurance needs, including:

  • 44% of women believe there is a gap in their life insurance coverage.
  • 45% of Asian Americans say they need more insurance.
  • 47% of millennials face a life insurance coverage gap.
  • 48% of African Americans admit to not having enough life insurance.
  • 50% of LGBTQ+ Americans express a need for more understanding.

This is becoming increasingly important as research by LIMRA reveals that one in four households would face financial difficulties within six months if the primary wage earner were to pass away. For one in five individuals, financial hardship would arise within a month.

At least 106 million Americans are covered by life insurance. To help raise awareness about life insurance, the government designates September as Life Insurance Awareness Month. Many life insurance companies also launch “Protecting Our Families” campaigns to promote insights and knowledge on the vital role life insurance plays in providing financial security for families.
