Survey looks at consumers’ resistance to discussing life insurance

Half of consumers say they would rather do their taxes than have a conversation about life insurance, a Penn Mutual survey indicates. In addition, 41% said they would rather stand in line at the Department of Motor Vehicles, and the same percentage said they would prefer to be called for jury duty. The “lighthearted” survey is a part of Life Insurance Awareness Month, Penn Mutual said. (9/15)
