Life insurance provides cash to your family after your death. This cash (the death benefit) replaces the income you would have provided and can meet many important financial needs: It can help pay the mortgage, run the household, send your kids to college, and ensure that your dependents are not burdened with debt. The proceeds from a life insurance policy could mean that your family won’t have to sell assets to pay outstanding bills or taxes. What’s more, there is no federal income tax on life insurance benefits.Most people with dependents need life insurance.

While there’s no substitute for evaluations your specific situation, one rule of thumb is to buy life insurance equivalent to
five to ten times your annual gross income. To determine how much, if any, life insurance you need, start by gathering all your personal financial information and estimating what your family will need after you’re gone. Include ongoing expenses (such as day care, tuition, or retirement) and immediate expenses at the time of death (like medical bills, burial costs, and estate taxes). Your family also may need funds to help them readjust: perhaps to finance a move, or pay expenses while job hunting.

The best way to evaluate your specific needs is to contact a life insurance professional.


Choosing a life insurance product is an important decision, but it can be complicated. As with any major purchase, it is important that you understand your family’s needs and the options open to you. For a free life insurance evaluation for you or your family,  please contact us.
