Ben Stein Loves Insurance Agents

An excerpt from Ben Stein’s article in the New York Times:

Many years later, an insurance broker came to call on my wife about disability insurance. I scoffed at him and told him how incredibly unlikely it was that a healthy woman like my wife would ever be disabled. ‘Yes,’ he said. ‘That’s what we think, too. That’s why it’s so cheap and pays so much if she does get disabled.’

I bought the policy, and when my wife did get temporarily disabled, it paid off magnificently and we needed it.

In particular, I’ve come to love insurance sales representatives. After many years of skepticism, and despite many warnings from consumer ‘experts,’ I have come to believe that you can rarely have too much insurance, and that whatever insurance you don’t have is exactly what you will wind up needing. The fact that so many people in insurance sell you what’s good for you, even when smart alecks are telling you not to buy it, makes their work extremely impressive. I wish I had paid more attention to them.

As Ben Stein has come to appreciate, we hope that you also trust that at Asset Security, Inc. operates in a different league.
