(MADISON) – Senator Lena Taylor (D-Milwaukee) released the following information to encourage and motivate Wisconsinites to get life insurance. September is National Life Insurance Month and Senator Taylor is working with Debra Gillispie, founder of Mothers Against Gun Violence (MAGV), to highlight the importance of life, health, car, home, and renter’s insurance.
In anticipation of National Life Insurance Month, Debra Gillispie shared the following statement:
“I knew how it felt to go through the loss of your child. I lost my son to gun violence. At the same time trying to figure out, how am I going to pay for his burial? There’s so much information about insurance that our community has no clue about. For instance, life insurance can be used to pay for retirement or for disability. So it’s a living benefit, too.”
Senator Taylor added, “it’s important to think about final expenses early when it doesn’t cost as much, rather than crowdfunding a campaign later to assist in covering funeral expenses. We want to educate our community, so families can be prepared.”
The Senator is asking residents to come to the Clinton & Bernice Rose Center, North Dr. Martin L. King Jr Drive on Wednesday, September 4, 2019 from 9:30 AM to 12 noon for information and resources on life insurance but all insurance needs.
