Peace of Mind for you and your Loved Ones

Hardy Insurance Agency provides life insurance to individuals in Fairfax, Chantilly, Alexandria, Falls Church, Springfield, Reston, and surrounding areas.

Individual Life Insurance

Many individuals consider life insurance to be the cornerstone of a sound financial plan. And while no one likes to think about passing on, Life Insurance can relieve you of the financial worry your loved ones may face in the event of your passing. 

Your beneficiaries will be able to use your Life Insurance policy to help pay for anything from expensive funeral costs and estate taxes to making up for lost income or funding your child’s education. It can even be used to continue payments on your mortgage to help ensure that the family home stays in the family.

At Hardy Insurance Agency , we know that choosing a Life Insurance plan is a big decision with many important factors to consider. Our knowledgeable team of insurance professionals is committed to walking you through the process and providing you with the best insurance solution to give you and your family the peace of mind you deserve. 

Types of Individual Life Insurance

Hardy Insurance Agency offers several different coverage options for your consideration: term life, whole life, universal life, and variable life insurance.

Term Life – This is typically the simplest and least expensive insurance option. Term life insurance provides coverage at a fixed rate for a specified period of time. It is a benefit policy that is used primarily to cover financial responsibilities of the insured, with the benefit to be paid only if the insured were to die during the specified term. Most term life policies can be converted to a more permanent insurance solution such as whole life, variable life, or universal life insurance.   

There are two types of term life insurance: 

  • Annual Renewable Term is purchased for a period of one year, with the death benefit to be paid only if the insured were to die during that one-year term, along with the option to renew after the term period.
  • Level Term Life guarantees a fixed premium for a given period of time, usually in terms of 10, 15, 20, or 30 years. Your premium is based on your age and coverage options, with longer terms being more expensive.?

Whole Life – As the most common type of permanent insurance, a whole life policy guarantees a death benefit for the lifetime of the insured as well as a cash value account for savings. Your premium remains constant throughout the duration of the policy while payments over and above your premium are credited to your savings, which earn a fixed rate of interest. 

Universal Life – Universal life policies are designed to be more flexible than other permanent Life Insurance. You are still guaranteed a death benefit for the duration of the policy as well as savings that accumulate cash value, but the flexibility of a Universal Life plan allows you to change certain aspects of your plan to accommodate life changes. 

Depending on your options, you have the flexibility to change the overall value of the death benefit as well as the time and amount in which you pay your premium. This gives you the option to focus on building your policy’s cash value, or pay a lower premium and focus on guaranteed protection. It is important to note that changes to your universal life policy can affect its guarantees and limits.

Variable Universal Life - With a variable universal life (VUL) Insurance policy, you get the same flexible benefits of Universal Life while being able to take advantage of potential economic growth in the stock market. Instead of creating a cash value for savings, the value of your VUL policy is invested in professionally managed funds that reflect the performance of the stock market. This also means that as the policy owner, you assume the risk and responsibility of monitoring your own investments.

Life Sound Basis - As your personal situations change (i.e., marriage, birth of a child or job promotion), so will your life insurance needs. Care should be taken to ensure these strategies and products are suitable for your long-term life insurance needs. You should weigh your objectives, time horizon and risk tolerance as well as any associated costs before investing. Also, be aware that market volatility can lead to the possibility of the need for additional premium in your policy. Variable life insurance has fees and charges associated with it that include costs of insurance that vary with such characteristics of the insured as gender, health and age, underlying fund charges and expenses, and additional charges for riders that customize a policy to fit your individual needs. 

An insurance specialist with Hardy Insurance Agency will review your current life insurance situation and help you design a policy to plan for the future.

At the end of the day, one of the biggest investments you can make is an investment in yourself. 

Hardy Insurance Agency is here for you

There are many things to take into account when purchasing life insurance, and changes in your life situation can reflect changes in your insurance requirements. That is why it is important to carefully consider the different policy options and ensure that you have the right solution to meet your long-term life insurance needs.

Clair Prenatt has been my Insurance agent for over thirty years. When I call him with a issue it gets done and he lets me know when it is done. Over the years there have been car accidents and our home was robed and just a few weeks ago the basement flooded. I called Claire and he told me what to do and I did just that. Once the claim was started another agent came to my home and looked at the damage and then went to his car and wrote up the claim and he came back inside and talked me through each and every line on it. Very detailed. So detailed I got bored :) LOL and then he handed me a check right on the spot. WOW. Now that is what I call service. It is very hard to find the service levels that Clair and Nationwide provide today. I will be a customer for life. Thanks

He is an outstanding agent and always makes me feel he is looking out for what is best for me.
