Choosing the right type of life insurance policy involves several factors. Throughout your life, your situation will change. Your life insurance coverage should change, too. These are a few things to keep in mind when calculating how much coverage you need.
Life insurance is designed to replace the income your family loses when you die.
Consider things like mortgage payments, college savings and quality of life when you determine the impact of the loss of your income.

The life insurance premium you pay, no matter how long you live before the benefit is realized, will never equal the amount of that benefit. That is, you will always pay less in premium than your family will gain in benefit from your investment.
