Chris Noth, an accomplished actor who is probably best known for his leading roles on Sex and the City and Law & Order, grew up in a life insurance family. Both his father and grandfather were agents for Prudential. Sadly, that’s not where Chris’ connection to the industry ends. His father died in an automobile accident when Chris was nine years old, leaving his mother to raise three boys on her own.
To support her family, Chris’ mother, a broadcast journalist, continued to work following her husband’s death. Fortunately, she was also able to rely on her husband’s life insurance coverage. The insurance helped maintain the family’s standard of living and was particularly important when Chris’ mother was in between jobs and not bringing home a paycheck. Insurance proceeds also helped put Chris and his brothers through college.
“I know from experience that life insurance can be the bedrock of your family’s financial security,” said Mr. Noth. “I’m very excited for the opportunity to use my story to deliver this important message to the American people. Life insurance is not a subject that people like to talk about, but it needs to be talked about.”
