How many years (Term) should I choose for my policy?

It depends. The period of time you’ll need life insurance coverage for should be equal to the period of time your policy lasts. For example, if you have young children, you may want a 20 or 30 year term life so your children are covered for college or other future financial endeavors. The longer the term will increase the rates on the insurance quotes for the product you are seeking.

On the other hand, if your children are out of college and supporting themselves, a shorter term policy might suit your needs better.

What are some basic life insurance terms I should know?

Policy Owner

The policy owner is the person who owns the life insurance policy. In most cases, the policy owner is also the person who is insured by the policy. However, the policy owner may also be a relative of the insured, a trust, partnership, or a corporation.

Beneficiary

A beneficiary is the person(s) selected by the policy owner to receive the life insurance payments upon the death of the insured.

Premium

Premiums are the payments made to the insurance company to purchase and keep a policy active.

Death Benefit

A death benefit is the amount paid to the beneficiary at the time of the death of the insured. 

Face Amount

The face amount of the policy is the amount of the death benefit as stated in the policy. This does not include additional amounts that the policy may have accumulated or how much cash value the policy has.

Insured/Insured life

Insurability refers to how likely an applicant is to be offered coverage based on current health, medical background, family history and other factors.

How much life insurance do I need? 

Consider what your spouse and dependents would need in order to cover day-to-day bills and larger expenses, to live comfortably and to have financial stability. Don't forget to include savings for college and retirement. Also consider the effect of inflation over time; the amount needed for college, say, twenty years from now is likely to be significantly higher than today.
