"As Mother's Day fast approaches, we're reminded of the amazing contributions made by the women in our lives," said leading online life insurance expert Gary Lardy of IntelliQuote ( "Life insurance for women is particularly necessary to ensure that, should there come a time when a mother is no longer able to contribute to her family's livelihood or care for young children; there is a plan in place to continue to maintain the lifestyle to which the family is accustomed."

According to a recent study produced by LIMRA, a worldwide research, consulting and professional development organization, married households are less likely to buy individual life insurance for wives than for husbands. The study found that too many women remain uninsured or under-insured.

"Women, and in particular, those who are mothers, contribute immensely to a family both emotionally and financially," said Lardy. "Yet oftentimes, their contributions are underestimated. The costs associated with those childcare support services are far-reaching. Life insurance can assist in covering additional expenses a spouse or partner might incur after a death in the family."
