Life insurance is one of the best ways to have peace of mind, knowing that your loved ones will be protected if you pass away. If you’re in or near the New Windsor, NY area, Bryan Insurance Agency LLC can help you find the right policy and coverage level for your needs. Here’s what to consider when choosing this type of insurance.
What You Need to Know About Life Insurance
First, there’s more than one kind of life policy. Term life is designed to provide coverage for a set period, after which it will expire. The whole life doesn’t expire, but it will have more requirements to start the policy. You may have to undergo medical exams and have ongoing requirements to keep the policy in force, especially past a certain age.
Second, a whole life policy will cost more than a term life policy in most cases, and you may be able to use the accumulated value of a whole life policy in the future for medical care or other expenses, even while you’re still alive. A term policy doesn’t have any of those options and will need to be replaced with a different policy when the term expires.
Lastly, the level of coverage you choose should be based on what your loved ones will need if you pass away, based on your current family dynamic, age, and other factors. As you grow older, you may want to adjust your policy. This is also true of any significant life events you experience, such as getting married or having a child.
