Things to consider
1. What was the purpose? - This question is the most important question you will ever answer before you buy life insurance. You must be very clear on the purpose of life insurance or you will allow the policy to lapse when the budget you need help. There is some need for life insurance, and so it is important to do some type of needs analysis so that you are satisfied with the amount of life insurance and the type of insurance you buy.
2. What type of life insurance? -Once you have determined your needs then it is a good idea to budget a certain amount of money for life insurance. This is important because it will help determine how many permanent or term insurance to buy.
3. What kind of service? -There are some people who want to buy life insurance from insurance agents because they want agents to service policies and make them information about future needs. There are an increasing number of people who do not want agents and prefer to do business via the Internet or by telephone.
