Why Does ANYONE Do This?

We have been candid and completely forthright with our thoughts about TEXTING and DRIVING or DISTRACTED DRIVING!  One action IS NOT worth the results of what can happen when you are behind a wheel of a car or riding with someone driving who gets distracted.

AT&T has come forward with their “IT CAN WAIT!” campaign and it’s eye-opening to say the least.  I’ll say no more and let this following video speak for us and so many others in saying: “IS IT WORTH IT!?”

 

Insurance rates are already being affected by distracted driving claims.  In the future, auto insurance rate increases could be mostly based on these unfortunate events that could cost you your life or the life of someone you love.  Let’s hope more can be done to prevent future occurrences of these events happening.  Life is a gift and too special to be wasted away with a 1 or 2 second glance away from the road to read something on a phone that certainly can wait until you or we stop driving. 

Feel free to EMAIL us at info@BentonWhite.com or TEXT or CALL – 615.377.1212 if we can help you with your insurance.  We’re here to encourage you to stay safe and we’re always ready to earn your business!

4 Questions To Help You Decide If Long-Term Care Insurance Is Right For You!

Buying long-term care insurance is about risk management. It boils down to how you answer these four questions: 1.    Would a tragic event (i.e. becoming disabled and requiring long-term care services) overwhelm and deplete everything you own? 2.    Given your family history, what is the probability of you needing long-term care? 3.    Do you have ample retirement assets and income to pay for all the costs of long-term care? 4.    Do you mind reducing your estate if the need for long-term...
