It is never too early to consider purchasing life insurance. Life is full of unexpected turns. Unfortunate occurrences happen all the time – just listen to the news. No one wakes up and expects tragedy or bad news from the doctor after a yearly check up, or an accident to affect their lives, but one should be prepared nonetheless.

With this in mind, the life insurance needed to protect you may be different from your neighbor. What’s important is to take the time to understand who may be affected by you passing unexpectedly.

Since life insurance is different for everyone consider whether it may be important to insure you have these issues protected due to an untimely death:

1) Education for the kids – Life insurance can provide the monies needed to pay for upcoming children’s education whether it is K-12, college and post-graduate work.

2) Debt Repayment – Regardless of whether it is a first or second mortgage, credit card debt, student loans, or emergency funds, or any other kind of obligation– allow life insurance to absorb this burden.

3) Retirement – The money that you would have saved over the years with either single or joint income is negatively impacted by a death, so life insurance can provide a lump sum payment to replace the retirement income lost and assure that you have adequate savings to retire.

4) Income Replacement – Most dual income families need both incomes to meet their obligations. So in the event a bread winner dies, the replacement of their income is usually crucial for the surviving members of the family to continue their current lifestyle. Life insurance guards against that providing meaningful income replacement that your family can depend on to live as normally as possible while you heal. If the surviving member is a stay at home spouse, then the shock of having to immediately find employment to replace income will add to their suffering and stress, so life insurance as a replacement income tool will allow the family time to prepare for their future as income earners, or use the proceeds to replace the income lost from the death of their partner.
