Which Type of Life Insurance Do You Need?

 

Choosing the right type of life insurance isn’t always easy and it’s not always something people want to talk about. However, having an estate planning conversation with your family about what happens after you’re gone can help them be financially prepared for what’s next.

 

Why is life insurance so important?

 

Finding the right type of life insurance is important for a number of reasons. If you want to make sure final expenses are covered, your last tax bill is paid and alleviate any debt burden from your family upon your passing then purchasing life insurance may be a smart financial decision. The proceeds from a life insurance policy pass on to your beneficiaries tax free and can help relieve financial stress during their time of grief that comes with losing a loved one. 

 

Could you imagine losing a loved one, being consumed in grief and having to deal with trying to pay funeral costs, executing a Will, visiting a notary, trying to carry out last wishes and getting into debt because of it. I certainly couldn’t. That’s why talking about life insurance with your family is so important.

 

Have the talk with your loved ones

 

Some people don’t like to talk about finding the right type of life insurance because they feel it’s a bad omen and some people don’t buy life insurance because they don’t feel they can afford the annual premiums. Based on all the information above, my question to you is, can you honestly afford not to?

 

What type of life insurance do you need?

 

Regardless of your financial situation, most people need life insurance. However not everyone needs the same amount or the same type of coverage. That’s where the assistance of a professional comes in. Talking to a financial advisor can help find the right type of life insurance that’s best for your (and your family’s) needs.

 

Getting established


Whether you’re single, have a young family, trying to build your career, or managing your first mortgage, critical illness insurance or disability insurance can help protect your income.

 
Building a business

 

If you’re an entrepreneur responsible for protecting your business and your family, consider protecting your company with term life insurance (for small businesses and start-ups) or permanent life insurance (for more established companies).


Approaching retirement

 

Getting ready to transition out of the workforce in the next few years? You may want to prepare to leave a legacy with permanent life insurance, and protect your retirement lifestyle with long-term care insurance.
