Gary P.

I’m 73 years old and was a trucker all my life. I had to retire at 57 years old because of medical problems. I had 26 years credit at that time. That was a total of $2,600. I gave back $390 a month so my wife could draft half at my death. I have had 4 heart attacks, triple bypass, and then 3 stints put in. I’m also now battling prostate cancer that has spread into my bones. My home has a mortgage against it because of all of my medical expenses. Losing my pension will cause me to lose everything. If I can keep it till I die, my life insurance would help my wife to be able to keep our house. She is 8 years younger than me.
