(Pompano Beach, FL – PR LOG – September 2, 2014) Award-winning home improvement show Designing Spaces™ airing on the Lifetime Channel and Transamerica are focusing the spotlight on how Universal Life Insurance can play an important role in a family’s future on Thursday, September 4th at 7:30 am (ET/PT). The episode is the final segment of Transamerica’s three part miniseries on the show, and will re-air on November 13, 2014.

Many people do not understand exactly how life insurance can help them and their families, so Designing Spaces brought in Tom Lukish, a licensed agent and manager with Transamerica Life Insurance Company to answer questions concerning permanent life insurance coverage, and explain how it can be a powerful financial planning tool for families.

Lukish will explain to a couple as well as viewers at home how TransACE®* Universal Life Insurance available from Transamerica offers permanent coverage that has the added benefits compared to term life insurance such as greater coverage flexibility, cash value and an Income Protection Option.

“We are excited to share with Designing Spaces viewers how permanent insurance such as Universal Life is another good life insurance option in addition to the term insurance we told them about last year,” says Larry Skurla, Marketing Director, Life & Protection Division, at Transamerica Life Insurance Company. “Being part of the miniseries with Designing Spaces is a great way to connect with our target demographic, and airing during national Life Insurance Awareness Month makes our segment especially relevant.”

“Over the course of their miniseries, Transamerica has given our viewers great information on all the different types of insurance they offer from bikes to dental, presented in an easy to understand way,” said Scott Moss, Director of Programming of Designing Spaces™ on Lifetime TV.
