Are insurance sales agents going to be around forever?
My husband is looking into becoming an insurance sales agent and I am wondering if anyone thinks this job will eventually become obsolete due to the younger generations getting their insurance online.

I would hate for my husband to invest a lot of time and money opening his own agency if the industry is going to completely change eventually.
