Have you been looking for increased opportunities to give back? Or are you just looking for an excuse to get out on the links and work on your golf game? Either way, you should know that the Aga Khan Foundation USA is hosting its 8th Annual PartnershipsInAction Golf Tournament. This tournament will be held in five locations across the United States, and the Texas edition will be hosted at the Cowboys Golf Club in Grapevine on Thursday, April 2, 2015.

The tournament, named one of the top 20 largest tournaments in North Texas by The Dallas Business Journal, fundraises with the aim of ending global poverty. In 2014, Aga Khan Foundation USA raised $9 million for this noble cause.

February American Heart MonthHow Will You Celebrate The Month?

Love is certainly in the air this month, and you will likely see more hearts and red and pink candies and cards in the next few weeks than at any other time of year. When you look at the multitude of heart shaped items, let it serve as a reminder to think about the muscular organ in your body inspiring them. February is not just home to Valentine’s Day, it is also American Heart Month.

Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death among both women and men in the United States. Yet, many people do not know their risk for cardiovascular disease or how to minimize it. To help, here are a few steps you should take.

  • Check your cholesterol and blood pressure. You can check your blood pressure at your pharmacy or doctor’s office. Ensure your doctor checks your cholesterol at least every few years.
  • Work to eat a more healthful, better-balanced diet.
  • Exercise (walking counts!) for at least thirty minutes every day.
  • Quit smoking as soon as possible. If you do not smoke, do not start.
  • Minimize your drinking to two drinks or fewer a day to reduce your blood pressure.
  • Work to manage your weight. Check your body mass index, and if you are not within healthy limits put on or lose weight at a rate that is sustainable and healthy for your body until you reach a healthy weight.

While you work on protecting your body, let the professionals help you get the coverage you need to be protected in other areas of your life. Contact Global Financial & Insurance Services in Irving for all of your Texas life insurance and other insurance needs. Our team of expert agents is available to get you the comprehensive coverage you need for peace of mind this year. Call us today!

Earthquake Insurance Irving TXYour Guide To Earthquake Insurance

You have secured the homeowners insurance you need to protect your hearth and personal property against fires, theft, and other unforeseen unfortunate occurrences. Have you, however, considered getting the coverage you need for other disasters, such as earthquake insurance? If you have not, you may be surprised to learn that earthquake insurance is not included in most homeowners insurance policies, and needs to be secured as an additional rider or as a separate policy.

Earthquake insurance can give you and your family peace of mind knowing you will be able to rebuild from the ground up and replace all of your property should an earthquake wreak havoc on your home. Earthquake insurance policies are different from most policies in that rather than having a flat-rate deductible (e.g. $1,000) their deductibles are based off a percentage of the policy’s limit (e.g. 15 percent).

Secure your policy now because most insurance providers will not offer earthquake insurance for a time after an earthquake. You do not want to be left without coverage in the face of this natural disaster or scrambling for protection after one strikes. Your earthquake insurance may also cover landslides, mudslides, and the settlement, rising, and sinking of the earth. Do not be left in trouble if your home is affected by one of the 20,000 earthquakes or earthquake related disasters the United States experiences each year.

Your family deserves to have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that no matter what nature brings your way, your quality of life will not be affected in the long term. Contact Global Financial & Insurance Services in Irving for all of your Texas earthquake insurance and other insurance needs. We are here to ensure you have the comprehensive coverage you deserve at the most competitive price.
