Anytime you’re reevaluating your financial plans you should include a review of your life insurance needs. However, there are 5 key times in your life when that review is critical:
Marriage: Many families rely on two incomes. Life insurance helps the surviving spouse with any outstanding debts and daily living expenses
Parenthood: In perhaps the greatest understatement of the year, children are EXPENSIVE! From diapers to diplomas, life insurance would help provide the financial support needed to raise a child.
Buying a home: Life insurance will make sure your loved ones aren’t burdened with a mortgage payment they may not be able to afford with out your income
Changing jobs: This is the perfect time to reevaluate your life insurance coverage. As your income increases, so should your life insurance.
Retirement: You may be surprised to know that there are life insurance policies with living benefits that can be a sound addition to your retirement policy.
Single: Even if you are single, with out children, and do not own a home life insurance can still be the right fit for you. It can pay for potential debt you may have, including student loan debt (federal loans are typically forgiven upon death, but certain private loans and loans with cosigners may not be). It can also provide support for aging parents or other family members you may be responsible for.
