How Important is Life Insurance?

Certainty is the fuel to success. When you are certain to anything it is always the sure bullet to attain success in life. However, we live in a world of uncertainty. For this reason, we use some tools in order to avoid huge losses on our savings in an event of unexpected happenings. In this article, we will talk about how important is life insurance.

Love Insurance – Retirement

Some people call it as “Love Insurance“. They treat this as one of the simple gifts that they can give to their love ones. Some people do not see the beauty of life insurance until they come to a point that they need it. And most of the time they are unable to secure one because they are no longer qualified. Let’s take for example the situation of my friend. He is now 40 years old and he wants to get life insurance. Unfortunately, is no longer qualified to get one because of his condition. Check his life story here.

Educational Fund

Get Life Insurance while you are still young and while you still can. When you are young there is a higher probability of getting approved. Also, when you are young, the premium fee is lower than when you get older and have a sickness. When you are young you have a higher probability of paying the fee because you do not have a lot of responsibilities. When I started my own plan I was 26, I was single and I don’t have other responsibilities to take care. I took a 10-year plan without knowing that right now I could use it as my educational plan for my little one.

Income Continuation

Also, Life Insurance can be used as an investment for your retirement. Unlike traditional plans which cover sickness, accident and death products there are other plans which can be used as an investment. This type of plan is commonly called as VUL(Variable Universal Plan).

Lets take a look at the example below:

What is life insurance?

Life insurance, simply put, gives you peace of mind.
Life Insurance is designed specifically to take care of the financial burdens that occur on the death of yourself or a loved one. It pays a death benefit (also called “Face Amount”) to your beneficiary at your death. This death benefit can be used for many things, including funeral expenses, mortgage debt or other final expenses. The beauty with life insurance is that you can tailor the coverage to your needs.

But life insurance is expensive. Right?

No, not necessarily. 80% of us are deterred from purchasing the right level of coverage because we believe it to be too expensive; that’s a huge number of our loved ones who are going to be left with debts when we die. There are many types of life insurance policies available, with products to suit every budget.
Yet, because of the specific way that life insurance is calculated (taking into account factors such as age, medical history and lifestyle), most of us will find it to be much more affordable than we originally thought.

The payout from a life insurance policy can provide a financial safety net that helps your loved ones pay for expenses such as a mortgage, childcare, and many other day-to-day bills that come with adulthood. … Replace lost income and pay living expenses, like rent or a mortgage. Pay debts you leave behind.
