Reno, NV – Frustrated and confused about life insurance? Whether you’re a first time buyer or in need of reviewing your current life insurance policy, you’ll want to participate in a free, online seminar, Thursday, March 30, featuring three of the nation’s top financial planning and insurance experts.

Braces, College and Really Expensive Wedding’s or, How Life Insurance Can Help You Plan for Your Family’s Financial Future” will feature presentations as well as question and answer sessions with leading financial advisors Ric Edelman and Morey Stettner as well as QuickQuote.com President Dan Wager. The seminar, part of a series called the “Insurance Enlightenment Seminar Series,” is designed to help consumers understand the options available in order to make the life insurance buying process easier.

“We know how confusing it can be to learn about life insurance, its legal jargon and its complicated application process,” said Wager. “We hope to enlighten consumers with this first-of-its-kind seminar for the online insurance industry that will kick off a series of seminars to educate consumers on various insurance products and issues.”

Topics to be discussed include:

  • What life insurance policies/plans are right for each stage of life?
  • How to avoid ‘bait & switch’ tactics in buying life insurance
  • What does an underwriter do with your personal information?
  • What to protect? How much coverage?

About the seminar Ric Edelman said, “I am excited to support QuickQuote’s efforts to teach consumers the importance of life insurance, and how to buy it easily and inexpensively. As one of the nation’s most active educators in the field of personal finance, I look forward to this opportunity to share the wealth of information.”
