Nearly 68 million Americans have no life insurance coverage–and those who do are often grossly undersured. But the Life and Health Insurance Foundation for Education (LIFE) is out to change all that.

It also gives some great recommendations on how to find a good agent in your area. [Find them here: September's Life Insurance Awareness Month Calls Attention to the Need for Financial Protection]
