Your term life insurance primer
How does term life insurance work?
Term life insurance is the most common type of life insurance owned in the USA as it is affordable and easy to purchase. Term life insurance pays a lump sum to your family or business upon your death if you die within your policy’s term.
Choose your coverage amount and coverage length based on your financial needs.
Coverage amounts range from $50,000 to $65 million or more based on your income or net worth. Coverage lengths last for 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, or 40 years—or create your own custom term length when you buy your policy.
How much insurance do I need?
The amount of money that you wish to provide your family or business upon your death is up to you.
Use our free online life insurance calculator to easily estimate your needs.
We suggest that you consider buying a policy that a) simply covers 10 times your income or b) calculate your coverage amount based on your financial obligations minus your savings.
Here’s how to calculate your financial obligations minus your liquid assets in a few simple steps:
- What is your annual salary? ($80,000)*
- Multiply your annual salary by the number of years you wish to replace your income ($80,000 x 10 years = $800,000)
- What other debt do you carry? (mortgage, car or student loans, credit cards = $250,000)
- What future costs do you anticipate? (college tuition = $250,000)
- Calculate your total financial obligations by adding your numbers from steps 2 to 4. ($1,300,000)
- Subtract any liquid assets, savings, or life insurance policies you own. ($1,300,000 – $300,000 = $1,000,000)
Your total sum from step 6 is the amount of life insurance coverage to purchase.
*If you’re a stay-at-home parent, substitute the cost to replace your child care and other domestic services for your annual salary in step 1. The annual cost to replace a stay-at-home parent’s contribution to a family averages $145,000 across the USA, but varies by state.
How much will I pay for coverage?
The higher your risk of death, the more you will pay for your term life insurance policy.
Common risk factors that life insurance companies use to evaluate applicants are:
- Primary residence
- Physical health
- Family health history
- Driving record
- Substance abuse history
- Smoking status
We work with the life insurance companies to get you the best rates for your needs and lifestyle.
