Okay Millennials – YES…you should be educated about life insurance and know when you should get it! Facing financial decisions head-on is the only way to protect your financial future.
You may not be at a point in your life where you need life insurance. Maybe you aren’t married and don’t have any dependents, but you should still consider other items associated with life insurance. You need to have something to cover final expenses and burial costs and you need it if your death would leave any financial burden on someone in your life. Don’t be that person – you know, the one that leave someone in a lurch.
You can avoid this issue by getting life insurance! Additionally, it also covers replacement income, debts, and allows you to leave someone an inheritance.
Purchasing life insurance now will be cheaper than waiting when you get older. You might not need a big policy at the moment, so you can purchase one that is more budget conscious.
There isn’t just one policy that fits for all millennials or for everyone. You have to speak to an insurance agent, research you options, explore your situation, get quotes, and choose the right policy. It takes time – which mean the “give it to me now” ideals you have as a millennial need to be squashed. Be prepared – you will mostly likely need a medical exam as well.
Don’t be afraid – it is a big step, but a necessary one AND part of being an adult.
