How Is Life Insurance An Investment?
Life insurance can be considered an investment you are making for your family, not necessarily for yourself. When you pass away, your life insurance policy will be there to ensure that your family is financially stable and can accomplish the financial goals you established for them.
Certain life insurance policies can also be used as a type of savings or investment account which could be tapped into for financial needs before you pass away.
How Much Life Insurance Do I Need?
The amount of life insurance you choose to purchase will be highly dependent on your particular circumstances and your family’s goals. Some families only wish to have enough life insurance in place to cover funeral expenses, while other families expect life insurance to replace or exceed the deceased person’s income. You will need to discuss with your family what intentions you all have for the future.
An insurance agent can also sit down with you and your family to discuss this important aspect of your policy.
Are There Different Types of Life Insurance?
Yes, there are different types of policies that accomplish different goals. You will be able to discuss the different types of coverage with an agent.
