Is Life Insurance Expensive?
Thinking about purchasing life insurance? Worried that it might be too expensive for your family at this time? Overestimating true cost by at least 3x leads most of us to avoid life insurance because of the thought that it’s “too expensive”. So, let’s clarify!
Insurance rates, as such with Life insurance, is determined by risks. As the risk of death grows, so does the cost. For the young and health, insurance is extremely inexpensive and can generally be acquired for less than $25 a month for a term insurance plan and less than $50 a month for a whole life insurance plan. These are the two main kinds of life insurance policies - term and whole life. Term insurance policies are only active for a set time period, or term, generally 10, 20, or 30 years and a shorter the term will yield a lower premium since the risk of death declines.
Depending on the long term goal for individuals and families that need life insurance at the lowest price and have young children, a term policy may be a great option as it provides inexpensive coverage to protect the family just until the kids are grown. Be sure to keep in mind that you are in control of the amount of insurance you need, which is based on debt, household income, and how you would prefer your life insurance be used. For example, if you only require $50,000 in coverage, then you’ll pay less than you would for $500,000 in coverage.
