When most people hear the words “life insurance”, they normally think of old people nearing the end of life. But life insurance isn’t just for old people; young adults need it, too!
No one really likes to think about dying, especially when you’re young and feeling invincible. But the truth is accidents happen sometimes. If you have debt, then there’s a good chance that the people you love the most will end up dealing with your debt on top of having to deal with funeral expenses, which now cost an average of $10,000.
Consider these important people or areas of your life that could be affected:
- Your Parents: If your parents helped cosign a loan, such as for your car, credit card, home or education, then your parents will be responsible for paying off all of those debts. Although some student loans can be dispelled after the death of a student, many cannot.
- Your Spouse: If you are married, then you should probably get life insurance so that your spouse does not have to pay off any debts that you incurred before you were married. Once you are married, all debts will be the responsibility of your spouse.
- Your Children: If you have children, it is imperative to get a life insurance plan to ensure that they have some support in case of your death. Even if your spouse has the ability to work and earn a good income, having a life insurance policy in effect will provide your children with much needed financial security.
- Your Business: If you have started your own business and have a business partner, both you and your partner should consider taking out life insurance policies to protect the business.
- Your Retirement: Additionally, life insurance can be a good source of income for retirement.
