Can I Really Afford $500k of Life Insurance To Protect My Family?

How Much Does $500k Term Life Insurance Really Cost?

The fact is the majority of Americans are either uninsured or under-insured when it comes to their life insurance coverage.  Life insurance is not mandatory such as auto insurance is, but if you have a family it is just as important or even more so.  Have you ever thought of what would happen to your loved ones if you suddenly died?  How would they pay the monthly bills?  Would they have enough money to continue living in the same house as you do right now?  How would their life change?  How would you be remembered?

The good news is you can insure your family against this type of uncertainly by purchasing a good life insurance policy.  Many Americans believe life insurance costs too much money but with new medicines and people living longer, life insurance is very affordable right now.  Take a look at the table below.

Scott, I definitely agree with you about the affordability of term life insurance protection for a family. It only makes sense to provide the financial security your family needs in case you are no longer there to provide for them. And, a level term life insurance policy for a term of 10, 15, 20 or 30 years can help provide the protection they need at affordable rates. There are several insurers that offer very affordable rates on term life insurance, including Banner Life, West Coast Life, Prudential, and Metlife, among others.

The best thing to do is talk to an agent that you trust that will develop a plan that will work for you and your family. If a $500K policy is what you are looking for, talk to a professional to see if it affordable and necessary for your family.
