When Term Life Insurance Makes the Most Sense

When Term Life Insurance Makes the Most Sense

Life insurance is available in two basic forms, permanent and term insurance. More importantly, these two basic forms can be beneficial in two distinct ways.

Term insurance is insurance that covers the life of the insured for a very specific amount of time or “term”. It is less expensive than permanent and this makes it very useful. So, when does term insurance make the most sense?

When You Have Significant Obligations

Term insurance can be the best choice for protecting you and your family when you are most vulnerable. That is when you have significant obligations. This is generally true for young families who have mortgage and car loans and may have significant credit card debt.

When Covering College Expenses

Term insurance is a good way to make sure college expenses of young children are provided for in the event of the death of the insured. The term would be the period of time it takes for the student to finish and pay for college.

When Starting a Business

Term insurance can be an efficient and cost-effective way to help ensure a young business can be successful in the event of the death of a principal. Should one partner pass, the proceeds could help the surviving partner continue with the enterprise.

When You Buy a House

Buying a home can place you in hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt. A “decreasing term” policy can help cover the cost of the mortgage should a premature death occur. A decreasing term policy provides less and less coverage as the mortgage is paid down through the years.

Getting the Coverage Best Suited for You
