Based in Alexandria, Louisiana, Andre Dobison serves as regional vice president of Primerica, a company that he joined more than three decades ago. Andre Dobison was attracted by the promise of being able to work exactly as many hours as he chose and by the opportunity to assist families in gaining financial independence and becoming debt-free.

Primerica operates by a number of distinct concepts, including the “High Cost of Waiting,” which emphasizes the necessity of putting away significant savings each month in order to attain long-term retirement savings goals.

The “Theory of Decreasing Responsibility” involves the premise that family responsibilities and life insurance needs peak at the same time. During the years when children are young and mortgage payments present a heavy burden, many families have not yet accumulated large savings. For this reason, a sudden illness, accident, or injury can have a major financial impact. The moment when funds are tight and the family is young is exactly when insurance coverage is needed the most.

The Primerica website at explores other core concepts, including the “Rule of 72” and “Power of Compound Interest.”


An Introduction to Term Life Insurance

As a regional vice president of Primerica, Andre Dobison oversees the distribution and marketing of the firm’s insurance and financial products. Andre Dobison maintains an in-depth knowledge of Primerica’s term life insurance and other coverage options.

By definition, term life insurance provides benefits to the survivors of a policyholder, assuming that the policyholder passes way within a particular period of time. The policy offers no benefits after its expiration date, although the owner may elect to renew the coverage when the policy expires. Some policies must be renewed on an annual basis, while others are valid for a multi-year period.

Annually renewable term policies are the most affordable kind of insurance at the beginning, but they may carry premium increases concurrent with the policyholder’s advancing age. This type of coverage is most appealing to those who anticipate a higher future income. Many with annual term policies use this coverage to protect their families should they pass on at a younger age, while saving in other ways for death at a later age. By contrast, level-premium term coverage protects the policyholder for a specified period and never increases in cost, regardless of the policyholder’s choice to renew. This is also a popular choice with those looking to increase their savings, but tends to be a more conservative option for those who cannot predict future income.
