I know this is not related to radios, but recently my grandfather passed away, and being the person that got me started with radios, I owe him this. When he passed he left my grandmother in a financial bind because she did not have readily available money for the funeral and final expenses.
If they have thought of life insurance a few years back, she would not have been in this pickle right now.
Most elderly people do not realize that they still can get life insurance coverage if they are in good health and never had any major medical issues. So, if you are over 60 years of age, do not wait any longer and see if you can get a policy today.
