Why You Should Consider Term Life Insurance
In most cases, Term Life Insurance will provide the highest coverage amount for the lowest premium dollars over a specific period of time, like 10, 20, or 30 years. The life insurance will provide your loved ones with the money they need to cover expenses like the mortgage, medical bills, and more. You may want to have Term Life Insurance if any of the following applies to you:
- Your income helps support your loved ones.
- Your absence would cause additional expenses to your loved ones, such as child care.
- You’re paying off a large loan (for example, a mortgage or a private student loan), and would like your loved ones to be able to pay it off if you died.
- You own a small business and have business debts that would impact someone else if you died.
How Much Term Life Insurance Should I Buy?
The amount of insurance you buy is important, especially if you want to replace your income stream so that your surviving loved ones will not have to struggle financially as the result of their loss of your income.
