5 Life Insurance Questions Worth Asking

You would do anything for your family. That's why it's important to ask the right questions. Help protect your loved ones for the long run by talking these over with your financial professional:

  • What type of life insurance is right for my family?

    Your family's lifestyle and needs determine what type of insurance is best for you now. In general, there are two main types: term and permanent. Term covers a certain period of time and is generally less expensive than permanent insurance. In contrast, permanent insurance covers you for life and can help you build up savings, as long as premiums are paid and the contract remains in force.

  • How much coverage do I need?

    A financial professional can help you determine how much coverage your family needs. The acronym D.I.M.E. might help you think about your unique needs:

    • Death or funeral costs.
    • Income replacement.
    • Mortgage and debts.
    • Education.
  • What's the true cost of my contract?

    You'll need to pay a premium but if your insurance contract is building up cash value, that extra money may be able to offset some of your costs.1

  • Should I buy life insurance for my children?

    You may want to buy life insurance for your kids. Think of it as starting a life insurance for an adult and their future family, and at a lower cost.

  • Should I cash in my policy?1

    People close to retirement sometimes think they don't need life insurance anymore, so they cash in their contract and put the proceeds in the bank. But this may not be a good idea. Talk to a financial professional about other options, such as including your contract in your estate plan.
