Life Insurance

Do both my spouse and I need life insurance?

Okay, so you’ve figured out you need term life insurance (congrats, you’ve come to the right place.) But, what about your better half? If one spouse is covered, does the other also need to be?

Often, the answer is yes.

With marriage or a lifelong partnership comes a myriad of shared financial responsibilities and expenses times two – the mortgage or rent, utilities, car payments, and, eventually, the expenses that go hand in hand having children.

Do single people need life insurance?

Life insurance often isn’t needed for a single person with no children. Some may say, “Buy it while you’re young and healthy.” The reality is that, if you don’t need coverage, the money toward a life insurance premium could be better utilized by contributing to retirement savings or building an emergency fund.

Fortunately, we have good news for you. Life insurance doesn’t have to work that way.

Using life insurance to protect against your mortgage

Owning a home means having a little piece of the world where your family can grow – a place your children can return to after first days of kindergarten, first dates, and first years at college.

Your home is also a cornerstone of your family’s financial future because it’s a substantial asset that’s likely to grow. But even the best-made plans are not certain, so homeowners need a way to protect their mortgage from falling to their partner or a co-signer if they were no longer around.
