Let’s breakdown the questions:

What’s your annual income?

This helps determine how much money your household is accustomed to having and what they would no longer have if the unexpected were to happen.

How many years of income would need to be replaced for your family to be financially secure?

Basically, this means how long would it be before your family is back on their feet and would no longer need financial assistance.

How much do you owe on your mortgage?

What is the remaining balance that your loved ones would be responsible for? It doesn’t need to be exact, just an estimate.

How much additional debt do you have?

Common examples of debt include credit cards, car loans, home equity loans, etc.

Do you plan on contributing to your children’s college expenses?

College costs are high and continue to rise. Factoring this into your life insurance is important.

How much money will be needed for funeral/burial expenses?

The average funeral and burial is $10,000. The average funeral and cremation is $4,000.

How much money do you currently have in savings and investments?

Common examples include bank accounts, Mutual funds, Stocks and bonds, IRAs, and 401(k)s.

How much life insurance do you already own that you plan on keeping?

Include both employer and personal life insurance you plan on keeping versus replacing with a new policy.


The calculation is simply a suggestion. You can increase or decrease the coverage when you officially apply for life insurance.
