How Life Insurance Works

Life insurance is an insurance product that you pay for each month. These payments are called premiums. When you purchase the life insurance policy, you will purchase a coverage amount that will be paid to a beneficiary that you will name. This payment will be made to the beneficiary in the event of your death. 

The Need For Life Insurance

Life insurance is something that you invest in now, for the benefit of your loved ones later on. When you pass, your final expenses can be paid for outside of the life insurance benefit. This relieves your family from the financial burden of these expenses. In addition to this, many families also choose to use the benefit amount as a way to ensure that the family can maintain its standard of living and meet financial goals after you are gone. This is a special type of concern if you are an income earner in the family. 

Coverage Amounts

The amount of coverage you need will depend on a few different factors. First, you will want to consider the goal of the policy. If the goal is only to cover final expenses, then you will set a benefit amount for that goal. If the goal is to provide financial security for your family after you are gone, you will need to sit down with an insurance rep to discuss your finances and expectations.
