    Adrienne Greene, CLTC, MBA New York Life Insurance Company Agent 520 Broad Hollow Road Melville, NY 516-983-8647 by Debbi Spiegel November has been called Thanksvember. Your family’s financial security is definitely something to be thankful for. Adrienne Greene, a licensed agent with New York Life Insur- ance Company, offers a full suite of products that can help you meet a number of insurance and financial needs. Some pretty important people count on you. Life insurance can give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing that they’ll have what they need, even if you’re not here to give it to them. Having a life insurance policy can go a long way to giving you the comfort of knowing that your loved ones will be cared for if the unthinkable happens. The basic premise is simple. Life in- surance gives you peace of mind while you’re alive, and financial support for your loved ones when you’re gone. There are sev- eral types of life insurance pol- icies, including term and whole life. Adrienne prides herself on educating her clients. She ex- plains that term life insurance (which is life insurance protec- tion which lasts for a certain period) is like “renting an apart- ment” and whole life insurance is like “buying a house.” Some- times thought of as “death insur- ance policies,” final expense policies pay benefits to the people you designate as your beneficiaries when you die. Certain term life policies can be

    converted to a permanent policy which is a useful benefit if your life changes and you need ad- ditional protection. Whole life insurance (which is permanent life insurance) builds cash value over time, and if your needs for the death benefit change, Whole Life gives you the option to take out a tax-free loan if needed for things like col- lege funding, retirement, manag- ing costs for extended periods of care, and lifetime income strategies. Accessing the cash value of the whole life policy will reduce the available cash surrender value and the death benefit so that needs to be taken into consideration. In addition policy loans will require interest payments during the payback period. Dividends are paid and provide an opportunity for the cash value to grow, although div- idends are not guaranteed. Adri- enne will analyze your needs and recommend appropriate so- lutions. Adrienne Greene and New York Life Insurance Company provide personal strategies for life insurance, retirement, wealth transfer, education funding, 401k rollovers, charitable giving, and long-term care. Business owners can learn about offering their employees benefits, retirement planning, business succession planning and asset protection. No matter what stage of life

    you’re in, whether starting out, newlyweds, growing a family, or approaching retirement, Adri- enne will get to know you and create a custom solution to meet your financial goals. Enrollment is open and not subject to the deadlines of health insurance plans. New York Life has policy options to fit your needs and budget. Life insurance isn’t just necessary, it’s essential for peace of mind. New York Life Insurance Com- pany has been in business for 175 years. It is a mutual life in- surance company, which means that its primary focus is on the needs of its policyholders , not outside shareholders.. They are committed to humanity, integrity and financial strength. Their pro- ducts offer security in this world of uncertainty. Generations of Americans have turned to New York Life to help them protect their loved ones, prepare for r
