We don’t need as much life insurance as life insurers would like to sell us! You don’t want to buy insurance you don’t need. Here’s how to figure out whether you need it and how much you need.
To avoid buying life insurance you don’t need, ask yourself a simple question:
If I die, will my family or loved ones miss my income or financial support?
That’s the key question for most of us. If you can’t think of anyone that you care about who depends on you financially or for other support (e.g. in the home), life insurance isn’t for you.
