Why Do I Need Life Insurance?
Life is full of pleasant surprises and, at the same time, life holds many uncertainties. It’s easier to plan for happy events you know will occur, such as buying a home, paying for a wedding, or saving for college tuition costs. It’s more difficult to plan for the unexpected—such as a death.
For these times, it’s important that you have enough life insurance coverage for you and your family. Unfortunately, like many people, your current life insurance protection may be inadequate. You may be underinsured if your salary has increased since you last purchased insurance. Plus, when you consider new family responsibilities and inflation, the life insurance coverage you have now may not offer enough protection for your family.
How Much Life Insurance Do I Need?
Some experts say you’ll need six to eight times your annual gross income in life insurance. This is a general rule of thumb, but everyone’s needs differ. You should consider at least how much your family would need for funeral expenses, the mortgage, car loans, credit card debt, education for your children, and retirement for your spouse if you should die prematurely. The link below brings you to a calculator that provides a quick and simple method to estimate the amount of life insurance you may need.
Why Buy Life Insurance at Work?
Purchasing life insurance at work is easy and affordable—especially because your employer offers coverage issued by The Prudential Insurance Company of America. With this valuable group benefit there are no confusing quotes to sort through, and your premiums are paid via convenient payroll deduction. Your coverage is guaranteed if you enroll when first eligible, and the cost may be more competitive than insurance you could find on your own. What’s more, you’ll have the comfort of being covered by one of America’s most recognized and trusted companies: Prudential.
