Life Insurance - The Basics
Life Insurance - The Basics by Bart Samuri
Life insurance is purchased in order for you’re dependents to be looked after financially in case of you’re death. If you are single and have no dependents, it would probably be wise not to waste you’re money on life insurance, and use it to enjoy you‘re time alive. However, if you do have dependents, life insurance is a very wise investment. The death of a spouse or parent can have devastating economic effects on a family. While many people think that only the top earner of the house hold needs to purchase life insurance, this is usually not the case. Even if a spouse is unemployed, they’re life is worth a lot in terms of house keeping, cooking, taking the kids to school and doing the family bills.
It is expected that an unemployed spouse contributes at least the equivalent of a full time job. Even in this short list, you can see how the death of even an unemployed individual could hit the household financially, therefore everyone in the family should be covered by life insurance. People also tend to overlook the option of purchasing disability and long term life insurance. If you become disabled in the future or have to live in a nursing home, you can not count on social security to fully cover you, that is if you even qualify.
By being covered by these, you are insuring yourself financial ease as you reach old age. Even if you never have to live in a care home, or become disabled, it is much wiser to spend the extra money, even if it is only to breath a little easier. So whether you are looking to purchase new life insurance, or update your old plan, these are all important options to consider which many people over look.
