If you’re shopping around for life insurance, naturally you want to get the best policy for the least amount of cash. Here’s how to get the best deal in term life insurance.
First you’ll need a realistic estimate of how much coverage you’ll need. If you do not have many debts, you may not need a $500,000 insurance policy. However; if you have many children or a substantial amount of debt, a $500,000 or more policy may be right for you. Do some brainstorming and list all of your debts including mortgages, consumer debt, medical bills and more. Factor in college costs for children, funeral expenses and any miscellaneous costs you’d like to be covered. Have a coverage amount in mind to complete the next step.
