I Never Thought Life Insurance Was Worth It Until I Discovered Bestow

When we found out my wife was pregnant, it gave me a whole new perspective on life. Soon, I'd be responsible for a brand new, little human – it's equally as exciting as it is scary. I decided I needed to change a lot of things about my lifestyle so I can be there for my wife and our baby. I started exercising, eating healthier, and started reading parenting books.

Of course, this wasn't enough for my in-laws. No matter how hard I try to please them, they're never impressed. I always do something wrong – this time, it was life insurance. Sure, life insurance is a sensible thing, but I'm young and in good health! I mean, now that we're having a baby, we're under increased financial pressure, so life insurance felt like an unnecessary expense. But, of course, I said I'd look into it to keep the mother-in-law happy.

I googled a few things, but I found the process on most of the websites confusing. There seemed to be a lot of steps with paperwork, blood tests, and doctor visits. I had no idea where or how to even start. I was venting about the in-laws' nagging to my work friend, who has two kids. He suggested I look into Bestow, life insurance he got when he and his wife started having children.

I checked out Bestow's website, and the first thing I noticed was the application takes most people only 5 minutes, and plans start at just $5 a month. It seemed too good to be true, but they are so much clearer than the insurance sites I'd visited. It was so much easier than I expected to make an informed decision about life insurance.

They offer 2-year, 10-year, and 20-year terms. I decided to go with the 20-year plan. What I love about Bestow is there are no doctors' visits or blood tests. Simply answer the online application, and they tell you instantly if you're approved. After filling out answers to questions about my weight, general health, credit score, and medical history, I was approved! It's that easy. The whole process actually takes a few minutes.

That evening, I told my wife, and she was so impressed. Then and there, she read up about it too and then signed up on the spot! The next time I saw my in-laws, I bragged about it, and . . . they were impressed! "We're proud of you," they said! But most of all, I feel such peace of mind knowing if something were to happen to me or my wife, our little one would be covered. With a quick and easy process and such low prices, Bestow definitely makes life insurance possible.
