Many people wonder who needs life insurance. The answer is simple: everyone in your family. As the head of the household, you might need the most life insurance. However, you do not want to be left in the dark when someone else in your family needs it. Your spouse, your children or anyone living under your house needs some type of coverage.
In light of this common confusion, here are some reasons you need to acquire a policy to protect everyone:
- The purpose of life insurance is to give your family the means and money to bury you, and then to live comfortably as they decide what their next decision should be. If you pass away, you want your spouse to have some money to provide for your children, find a job, or buy a house.
- Some life insurance policies allow you access to cash out the policy or take out some other monetary value. It can be used to pay for college tuition, hospital bills or nursing home fees. This makes it an invaluable source of money for you and your family in the future.
- You might expect an elderly or sick family member to pass away, but you might not be able to foresee the death of your spouse or your dependent. You do not want to be left without savings if something unexpected happens to a family member.
Here are some questions that you should ask your life insurance company in order to make sure that you and your family are prepared for the future:
- Who is currently covered under my policy?
- Why would you deny someone insurance?
- How much coverage does each person have?
- How long is each person covered?
- Can the life insurance policy be cashed out?
- What is the claim process?
