There’s a significant gender gap that no one’s talking about.
While our attention is focused on narrowing the gender pay gap, many don’t realize that fewer women have life insurance compared to men. Forty-eight percent of women have no life insurance, while only 38 percent of men are without life insurance. Women with life insurance also typically have less than their male counterparts; the average woman with life insurance has a $129,800 policy, yet the average man’s policy is worth $187,100.
The good news is that the life insurance gender gap is much easier to narrow than the wage gap. It all starts with education. Make it fun with the Life Insurance: How the Medical Exam Can Affect Your Quote quiz.
