So in today’s blog we are going to run through the things you should consider before buying life insurance and what you should think about before you speak to anyone.
Buying the right kind of life insurance is important. After all you do not want to go for the wrong option and have to change things at a later date.
A good insurance adviser will always make sure you know that facts and that sufficient time is taken to look at your circumstances in full, before any recommendation for life insurance is offered.
In order to assist yourself before you call or fill out a quote form, you should consider the following:
What is the level of your financial commitments currently at? This may include your mortgage, rent, any loans or credit cards and indeed anything that could be construed as something you are paying over a specific term.
Are you planning on having a family or have you recently become a parent? Circumstances change frequently in life so it’s a good idea to consider these things as part of a life insurance plan. You may also want to think about whether you are likely to move to a larger home in the future and if that’s on the agenda, that you make sure any existing life insurance policy is updated accordingly.
Understand the costs of running your home and financial support for your family: This is as simple as working out what kind of finances would be required to sustain your family in the lifestyle they currently have should you not be around anymore.
Understand the value of any assets you wish to give to your loved ones when you pass away. You may have savings, or other tangible things, which could be off set against the cost of your life insurance to reduce costs. For example, if something you have has a financial value (a boat, or a car) then you could consider this as part of a financial legacy that includes life insurance, perhaps reducing costs slightly.
