About To Deploy

What can Juan do to prepare himself as he's about to be shipped overseas?

QUESTION: Juan will be deploying soon, and he wants to get some life insurance. He got the standard military insurance for $400,000, but doesn’t know much about anything else. Dave says there are a few things to look out for, and reminds Juan of another important document that he needs.

ANSWER: You can get more, but if you’re going out of the country, you need to check with the policy you’re buying, because some of them don’t cover war. You may be able to do an up-buy on your military insurance. Check with Zander Insurance to see if they can help you. Make sure to get your last will and testament done before you go. Everyone needs a will. For $15, you can go to uslegalforms.com and you can get one that is state-specific. You absolutely need to do that.
