Why do you need life insurance?
Think about it this way, it is more for your family than for you. If you have loved ones who rely on your income, you need to purchase a life insurance plan. It is like an emergency fund. This investment will take care of your family if you pass.
When do you need life insurance?
If you disappeared tomorrow, would it affect anyone financially? If the answer is yes, then you need a life insurance plan. If you have accumulated debt and bills, then you need a life insurance plan. Debt does not disappear once you pass on, someone does have to pay for it. Purchasing a life insurance plan will take care of the debt for you and your family member will not have to worry about paying it off.
What type of policy should you get?
There are two major policies: term and whole. Term life insurance is exactly how it sounds, it is a plan that you choose for a certain period of time. Whole life is a type of life insurance contract that provides insurance coverage of the contract holder for his or her entire life. Upon the inevitable death of the contract holder, the insurance payout is made to the contract’s beneficiaries. These policies also include a savings component, which accumulates a cash value. This cash value is one of the key elements of whole life insurance.
The rule of thumb is
debts + (living expenses x duration) + additional expenses = estimated total x 1.05 OR 1.10 = total coverage needed
