(BPT) - June 28 is National Insurance Awareness Day, reminding everyone of the importance of having insurance to help you when you need it most.
If you're a millennial and haven't invested in life insurance, now is the time to do so. According to Life Insurance and Market Research Association (LIMRA), only 49% of millennials have life insurance, but 47% intend to buy a policy within the following year. Buying life insurance now can give you peace of mind for your future (and save you money!).
Still not convinced? If you get the feels when someone mentions Sun-In, Lisa Frank or any of the trends listed below, it's time to start shopping for life insurance (and Quility makes it easy).
Just the mention of dial-up internet brings to mind the telltale screech of the modem connecting to your home's landline. While the sound wasn't pleasant, it did signal that you were close to connecting to the World Wide Web.
2. Movie rentals
Nowadays, you can easily rent and stream movies and TV shows from your smartphone or computer. However, you likely recall how video rentals used to be an experience all on their own. Whether you went to a chain store or a local mom-and-pop shop, going to rent the latest VHS release meant browsing the aisles and hoping the store had enough copies.
3. Arcade games
How much of your pocket change did you spend on arcade tokens at your local shopping mall during childhood? While they might be a novelty now, arcade games used to be wildly popular. You could even find arcade video games at your local car wash and play a few rounds while waiting.
4. Portable CD players
Lighter than a boombox and armed with anti-skip technology, CD players replaced the iconic portable cassette tapes. Whether you listened to your favorite CDs on the bus, while riding your bike or while walking to school, you had your own personal soundtrack running in the background.
5. Digital pets
Who knew you could become so emotionally attached to a digital pet? While there are now several games and apps with virtual animals, it was the pocket-sized digital pets of the 90s that taught many young millennials the importance of caring for a pet (without dealing with real-life messes).
How many pager codes can you remember? Before texting and emojis, pagers (or beepers) were the fastest way to get a hold of your friends. While you couldn't call back or even respond with some models, pagers made it easier to plan weekend adventures than getting all your friends on a three-way phone call.
Do you remember the excitement and fear of the approaching new millennium? It may seem silly now, but for those who lived through it, many people prepared for various computer systems — including those in charge of financial databases and airline reservations — to shut down. The Y2K scare led to many people withdrawing their money from banks. Fortunately, when the clock struck midnight in the year 2000, no major malfunctions occurred.
