There are many reasons for buying life insurance. If you're the primary wage earner in the family, life insurance is a good way to help provide your family with a stable financial future. If you aren't the primary wage earner in your family, it's important to have insurance to help cover the financial burden of childcare, funeral expenses, and other unforeseen costs.
While it's difficult to face our own mortality, planning for it can ease the burden our loved ones will face later. Purchasing life insurance can help make a difficult situation easier by providing death benefits for:
- Unpaid medical bills
- Income replacement for survivors
- Final expenses like burial costs
- Unplanned or emergency expenses
- Your mortgage balance
- Future education funds for your children
