Lesson To Learn From The German Wings Tragedy by Barbara Kempen | Mar 28, 2015 | Life Insurance Many of my clients ask me how I feel about the disaster of the German Wings airplane crash, being an American/German citizen. This tragedy not only saddens me, but is also incomprehensible. A NPR interview with Kenneth Feinberg, the Attorney who was in charge of the distribution of the 9/11 Victim’s Compensation Fund, summarized very well what we can learn from such tragic events. “Nobody is immune from life’s misfortune... We all face uncertainty and risk. All the more reason to pause today and carefully plan for tomorrow.“ He points out that in the 9/11 tragedy only half the people had a will or sufficient life insurance in place. By now you know me enough to know that I don’t push sales onto my clients. But from me to you, I really want you to review if your will is up-to-date and your life insurance meets your current and future family needs. Be prepared. Please contact me if you have any questions in this matter. I have great resources to meet your life insurance needs and prepare a future will.
