Protect your wealth with an Insurance Policy through HollisWealth Insurance Agency Ltd.
  • Term Life Insurance

    Having adequate life insurance to be able to provide income replacement to your beneficiaries in the event you passed away could be key to your families financial success. Life Insurance can ensure your loved ones are able to pay off outstanding debts like mortgages, car loans, and lines of credit. Without an effective insurance strategy, your families living standard is at risk.

  • Disability Insurance

    Disability insurance is designed to provide income replacement in the event that you were to become disabled. With workers compensation only covering on the job injuries, disability insurance becomes imperative for protecting your families wealth. Even if you already have disability insurance through your employer, it may not be enough. Plus, if you change jobs, your employer-sponsored disability insurance will most likely end with your employment.

  • Critical Illness Insurance

    Critical illness insurance offers income replacement if you were to ever get diagnosed with a critical illness and were to see a permanent loss or reduction in income. If you were to become ill with an illness covered by your HollisWealth policy and survive the waiting period you would receive a lump sum cash payment. This could help you or your family pay outstanding debts, private nursing costs, or child care.

  • Long Term Care Insurance

    Unfortunately, there sometimes come a time in someones life where they can’t perform the basic necessities of day to day life. It then becomes the responsibility of your spouse or loved ones to take care of you if you can’t afford long-term care. This policy covers an array of costly expenses like medical equipment costs, private nursing costs, reduction of income, or even child care. This allows you to have more control of your care by being able to choose from in-home care or facility care.
