No one really likes to think about why they would need life insurance, but the truth is that this policy is one of the most important things you can invest in to protect your loved ones. All too often, however, people make the mistake of assuming that if they don’t have kids, they don’t need life insurance. If any of the following conditions apply to you, you need to consider buying a policy.
- You don’t have enough assets to cover your burial. If your estate can’t cover your final expenses, then they’ll have to be paid by someone else. A small amount of coverage can help to defray this expense.
- You have relatives who depend on you. Kids, elderly parents, or other relatives that rely on you for some type of support , physical or financial, will be effected by your death. Life insurance can provide lifelong care and/or someone to take over the tasks you normally do.
- Your family needs your income. If you and your spouse need both of your incomes to afford the bills every month, then you need to have a life insurance policy with enough coverage to replace your income after you’re gone. Make sure that your spouse has a similar policy set up for his or her income as well. Consider your final expenses, including medical costs, and how they will effect the family budget as well.
If any of these conditions apply to your personal circumstances, then you need to talk to one of the agents at Smart Way Insurance Agency. They can help you to find a life insurance policy that will give your family enough protection at a price that you can afford.
