  • Life Insurance

    At Dusenbury Insurance Agency LLC, we want to make customers aware of how easy and affordable life insurance is. We know many people in Columbus think they cannot afford to have a good policy that protects their financial interests. That is why we work with Nationwide to provide customers with the diverse coverage options they need to sleep peacefully at night.

    Affordability is a major concern for most. In addition to choosing coverage based on what you can afford, you need to think about how you or your loved ones may need to use your policy proceeds. Maybe you’ll need to replace lost income or pay for long-term care expenses and your kids’ college education. These issues may not completely encompass your current concerns. However, keeping them in mind will help you discern the proper coverage level for your situation.

    There are circumstances where customers find it more beneficial for them to layer several term life insurance policies instead of purchasing whole life insurance to give them long-term financial security.

    By speaking with a life insurance agent who works with Nationwide, you can gain a better understanding of options that are ideal for your situation. The amount of coverage you need can help you meet your current and future financial goals.

    To better understand coverage options, we encourage you to contact Renae D Dusenbury Waldman at (828) 894-2546 to arrange a time to meet in office at 60 Walker St,Columbus,NC,28722 to discuss your needs. For additional convenience, our agents are ready to help you go over coverage options over the phone.
