Certified financial planner Jeff Rose created the movement to raise awareness about the importance of having enough life insurance coverage to protect your family financially if something were to happen to you. He writes on his blog, Good Financial Cents , about a client who was left struggling financially after her husband died because he did not have a life insurance policy.

When they leave their job, they're no longer covered. Read more about the Life Insurance Movement on Rose's blog.
