Test Your Life Insurance Knowledge!

Buying life insurance is important no matter how old you are, but investing early is a good idea. In fact, you don’t want to wait until later because your age determines premium rates. So, the older you are when you start a policy, the higher your premium rates. But, other factors such as lifestyle and health risk also determine your premium. For example, if you have a dangerous profession like a pilot or roofer, then your risk is higher, so your premiums will be higher. The good news is that if you have a terminal illness like cancer, you’re still insurable because guaranteed issue policies protect people with terminal illnesses.

Also, if you choose an employer sponsored policy, you need to know that an employer sponsored policy terminates when you separate from that company and often is not transferable. Some policies require medical exams but are often cheaper than policies that don’t require a medical exam. Next, you’ll need to decide if you want a whole life insurance policy or a term policy because a term policy terminates after a set time like 30 years, but it’s cheaper than whole life policies. However, whole life policies protect you until death and build cash value over time which you can take as a payout.

Finally, before you buy a policy, you’ll want to review A.M. Best Stability Rankings to make sure you’re choosing an insurance company that is reputable.
