When Should I Think about Life Insurance for the First Time?

Many life events could and should make you think about life insurance. A marriage. A child. A business. A new house…

Whatever that is, you decided to buy life insurance for the first time. And that might look like a challenge.

We can help ease your mind-simply read the following advice.

First, who do you want to protect?

When there is a significant life change, like starting a family or a new home, people start thinking about buying life insurance.

But other situations may not trigger that thought. For example, did you realize that stay-at-home parents and student loan cosigners could have a definite need for life insurance? We can help you figure out who and what you really need to protect.

Second, only buy the insurance, you can afford

Many people are surprised how much life insurance they need to protect the people they love most. But this is a mistake not to buy any coverage if you can’t afford the plan you want. Something is much better than nothing, and you don’t need to purchase the best plan to help your family. 

Third, think about how much life insurance do you need

Sounds difficult? We are here to help. Call the Metropolitan Insurance Group office to learn more and get help through the process.

Fourth, take into account current and future needs

Remember to consider your not only your current lifestyle, but keep in mind your future needs. Life insurance is less expensive than most people think—and that’s especially true when you’re younger.
