Depression and Term Life Insurance

QuickQuote Term Life Insurance Blog

With Thanksgiving tomorrow and the holidays right around the corner, our thoughts turn to celebrations, family gatherings, parties, shopping, gifts, food, drink and other festive activities. But the holiday season can be a stressful time of year for many people, particularly those suffering from depression.

With everything we have going on in our country and the world right now, this holiday season could be especially tough for some. High unemployment, a slow economy, unstable housing, war and other negative events can be hard to look past if you are already struggling with anxiety or depression. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates 1 in 10 Americans suffer from some form of depression. That number is sure to rise soon due to Seasonal Affective Disorder related to the holiday season.

If you or someone you know is suffering from depression, we hope you will seek the help you need and deserve. And it’s important you know that despite this disease, you may be able to purchase term life insurance. Our new article explains how we’ve helped hundreds of people with depression find a term life insurance policy to fit their needs. You’ll also learn how to prepare for your application and what to expect from the life insurance company.

We’d like to wish a Happy Thanksgiving and holiday season to all of our readers and customers!
