Waiting Too Long to Acquire It

Life insurance rates tend to rise the older you get. Yet many will put off its purchase while buying other products and services. If you wait too long, you may not be able to afford as much as you deserve, your health may change, making it more expensive or other factors could make it impossible to acquire.

Not Securing Enough Life Insurance

If you are going to apply for life insurance, get as much as you can comfortably afford. Choose less expensive term insurance to get more.

Buying Too Much Life Insurance

Far too many life insurance policies lap for non-payment because the insured made too large of a financial cmmittment to life insurance. Make sure you can still afford your life insurance premiums even if there should be a slight downturn in your income. Lapsed life insurance policies negatively impact the insured and the insurance company.

Thinking Once You Purchased It, it is Off Your List

Your needs for life insurance will likely change as you move down the path of life. Check in on your life insurance policy every year or two and make sure it is still meeting your current needs.
