When Should You Purchase a Life Insurance Policy? 

Life insurance provides a sum of money to replace lost income after your death. In return, you make periodic payments, called premiums, to fund the policy. When you get a life insurance policy, you proactively protect your loved ones from incurring your debt. You can purchase a policy as early as 18 years old. However, some carriers and specific insurance plans have a minimum age and a maximum age on particular policies or benefit amounts. 

A general rule is the younger you are, the cheaper the policy. You can purchase a Term Life Insurance policy covering you for a pre-specified number of years or terms, term length examples: 10, 20, 30 years with guaranteed renewal or with cash value that you make back when you surrender the policy or the term is over. Or you can get a Whole Life insurance policy; this is the most common type of permanent life insurance and remains effective as long as you are alive with level (never change) premiums. It also provides a cash value account that can be used for any reason while you’re still alive and the dividends are tax-deferred.
