Your coverage needs are as unique as you are.

At AmFi, we believe life insurance should be tailored to each individual based
on their specific financial circumstances, responsibilities, and future plans.

The amount of coverage you need can change over time.

You’ll want to consider...

Before you start to calculate your coverage needs, there are several factors you’ll want to consider:

Household Expenses

Ensure your family can maintain their current lifestyle by securing coverage for day-to-day expenses such as housing costs, utilities, groceries, and transportation.

Outstanding Debts

Protect your loved ones from financial burdens like outstanding loans or credit card debts.

Medical Expenses

Safeguard your family’s financial security by ensuring there are funds available to cover medical bills, ongoing healthcare expenses, or potential long-term care needs.

End-of-Life Expenses

Cover the costs of your funeral, burial, or cremation to give your loved ones peace of mind in a difficult time.

So, how much coverage do you really need?

While consulting with an agent is optimal for a comprehensive assessment, if you prefer a broader
perspective on life insurance, this straightforward calculation can serve as a solid starting point,

Now Here Is The Math...

Let’s take Adam’s salary, \$65,000, and multiply it by seven to get Adam’s ideal coverage needs.

How Is That Money Spent?

The \$455,000 in coverage is tax free cash to be used at the discretion of Adam’s beneficiaries. However, Adam’s family would likely use it to pay off debts and provide financial cushion to supplement for the loss of Adam’s income.

FAQ

Term life insurance provides coverage for a specific period and offers a death benefit if you pass away during the term. Universal life insurance, on the other hand, provides lifelong coverage and offers a death benefit alongside the potential to accumulate cash value.

Most adults who are in good health can apply for life insurance. Adults under the age of 59 are eligible for universal life insurance policies. Only individuals between the ages of 20 and 50 are eligible for term policies. You may not be eligible for life insurance if you have cancer, heart conditions, or other life-threatening medical conditions or lifestyle habits.

Absolutely! We pride ourselves on being there for you when you need us. We process claims in less than 24 hours and typically have the cash in your bank account within 3 days.

Members with SGLI coverage have two options if they want to convert their life insurance after their service ends. The first option is that they can convert their SGLI to VGLI, a renewable term insurance that has no cash value that builds over time and has premiums that can increase over time, making it a more expensive option long-term. The second option is that they can convert their SGLI to an individual commercial policy with providers like American Fidelity. American Fidelity’s coverage is meant to provide a more permanent alternative that keeps your costs low and provides full benefits, including cash accumulation.

SGLI is issued to active-duty service members, and once these service members are discharged, they have 120 days during the military separation period to transfer to either VGLI or a commercial permanent policy. Additionally, Retired Reserve soldiers are typically not eligible for SGLI and must convert to one of these options. You cannot convert SGLI to both VGLI and individual commercial life insurance at the same time. However, there is nothing preventing you from converting to one and separately obtaining the other. Converting your SGLI to a VGLI policy can be cost-effective at first, but over time, it doesn’t provide any living benefits and gets more expensive as you grow older. Our universal life insurance policy allows you to stay covered at a fixed rate and offers living benefits like cash accumulation.

To convert from SGLI to an individual permanent insurance policy with providers from participating companies like AmFi, you must also convert within 120 days of the date of separation from the military. After this period, you still have an additional year to convert, but you would have to show proof of insurance and good health to convert if it’s past the initial 120-day period.

Policies with AmFi start at \$9 per month. The exact amount you pay each month (your premium) is determined by your choices in the coverage amount and length of term, as well as your age, health, and lifestyle choices.

No. With our 5, 10, and 20-year term policies you will be charged the same amount every month for the duration of your policy. When the policy expires, your rate may change based on age and insurability at that time.

We sure do. We don’t advise canceling your policy because your coverage will lapse, but if you cancel within the first 30 days, then we will issue you a full refund. If you cancel after the initial 30 days, then we’ll simply stop charging you.

In addition to life insurance coverage, this policy grows cash value that isn’t taxed right away. This cash asset is a tremendous advantage of our universal policies.

Please contact our office or one of our agents to discuss the universal life insurance policy and to see whether this is the best policy for your needs.

Just like with all our policies, the death benefit is completely tax free. The universal policies accumulate cash value that is tax-deferred. Please contact our team to learn more.
