Instant Life Insurance QuotesNobody wants to think about it; but the grim reality is that, at some point, we all have to.

What’s going to happen to our loved ones when we pass on?

What if we pass on sooner than expected?

How will my family survive without me and my income?

These are all serious questions that require serious thought.

What is Life Insurance

Fortunately, life insurance policies exist to help reduce some, if not all, of the stresses that come with end of life planning. A life insurance policy is just what it sounds like, a legally binding insurance policy that insures a person’s life for a predetermined dollar amount and pays that dollar amount to a predetermined beneficiary upon death of the insured.

Depending on how much a person wants to spend every month, the amount that a person can be covered for will vary anywhere from $10,000 to¬†millions.For the average Joe, a policy ranging from $10,000 to $1,000,000 is ideal, depending on how many people will need to be taken care of when average Joe is gone. A single Joe, with no wife and no kids, shouldn’t need more than $10,000 to $50,000 to pay for the settlement of final affairs and a funeral ceremony.

A middle aged man with young kids and a wife to care for may want to consider plans ranging from $500,000 to $1,000,000 in coverage to account for all the medical, educational, and other living expenses that a family of such size would incur until the children are 18-21. The life of the living spouse should also be considered, as he or she may need to meet living expenses with nothing more than the cash from the policy for several years.

What is Your Situation?

Thinking about life insurance is morbid enough without having to go through the process of purchasing a life insurance policy without explanation or assistance as to the best options for someone’s particular situation. With the help of the web, anyone considering the purchase of an insurance policy can get answers to their questions and custom advice from independent life insurance agents who sell policies online.

No need to travel to a local insurance agent’s office; in most cases, the entire process can take place online.

With access to so many offers, policy purchasers can rest assured that their independent insurance agent will present them with the best offers for their budget and end of life planning goals.

The Right Questions!

Among the questions that potential life insurance policy purchasers should ask themselves when weighing their policy options is: What is the cost of a funeral these days? What debts will remain unpaid upon death? How many people will be left behind needing financial assistance to survive? How much income would a household lose from one’s death?

These questions and more may be asked by an independent life insurance agent to help the agent determine the best plans for their client to consider.Perhaps best of all, after a policy has been purchased, the independent agent who sold the policy will typically make him or herself available by phone or email to the client should they have any questions about the purchase of their policy, policy renewals, or for new policy requests as the need for them arises.
