Many Americans believe that life insurance is not something they need, and by cutting back on coverage they are saving money. This is a common misconception, especially for the parents of America. If you do not have a life insurance policy and something were to happen to you, the financial responsibility would be placed on your kids. Here are a few things to think about when purchasing a life insurance policy:
- Determine how much you need. A good rule of thumb is three times your income, in addition to your debt.
- Do you need whole or term life insurance? Whole refers to lifelong coverage with an additional investment component. Term refers to the option to pay multiple payments of a fixed premium that only covers you for a predetermined number of years.
- Extra fees and charges can make whole life insurance much more expensive than term.
- Whole insurance would be the better choice for individuals with handicapped children.
