Security General / Family Life Insurance Policies
Term life insurance is offered to meet the needs of all family members as the family grows and matures. Family life also sells other types of life insurance to fit an individual’s or family’s requirements.
Family Life also sells mortgage protection life insurance; this insurance assures that a mortgage will continue to be paid in the event of the death of a homeowner. Children and survivors will have the peace of mind to know that they will not lose their house on top of losing a family member to a premature death. The premium for this insurance can be added into the mortgage payment to create one monthly bill to be paid. They are one of the largest providers of this type of life insurance in the US.

Eight different standardized plans are offered to allow for differing needs, budgets, and health of clients.
