Life Insurance Study

ING U.S.'s Insurance Revealed study uncovered striking disconnects in attitudes and behaviors towards life insurance.  The study revealed that the majority of consumers understood the value - particularly death benefit protection for their family - and felt the current economy made life insurance more important.  Yet, many lack confidence in their coverage amount and have not talked with their spouse about what would happen to the family finances if one of them passed away.
