what does term life insurance cover

Life insurance is an important financial tool that’s appropriate for almost everyone. Not convinced that you need life insurance? There are many circumstances where having life insurance is beneficial. When you consider term life insurance coverage for yourself, think about the following scenarios.

Term Life Insurance Coverage: Back to Basics

Term life insurance is a specific type of life insurance that covers you for a specific period of time or “term.” The term length you choose in addition to the amount of coverage is completely up to you. If you pass away during the term, your family would receive financial benefit in the amount you specified when you started the policy. This dollar amount is essentially your coverage. Life insurance coverage is commonly used as income replacement to pay off any debts and cover your loved ones living expenses.

Many Americans have significant financial debts, like a home mortgage, car loans, or credit card balances. If you pass away with debt, your family is responsible to pay them off. If your debts are large, this new financial responsibility can be crippling for your grieving family. Term life insurance can be designed to cover these debts if you were to pass away, protecting your family and loved ones from potential financial difficulty.

Medical and Funeral Expenses

Many times massive medical bills await a bereaving family after a loved one passes away from sickness or accident. Your funeral can also be a huge financial burden for your family and can cost nearly $10,000. You can make sure your term life insurance covers these expenses so your family does not have to struggle with your expenses and can focus on grieving and recovering emotionally.

Your Dependents

Whether you have children, are married, have aging parents or all of the above, life insurance can ensure they are properly taken care of should something happen to you. If you have children, life insurance can be used to pay for future college tuition or cover current daily living expenses. If you have a spouse who does not work or who relies on dual-income to support your family, life insurance coverage can help your family stay afloat. If you have elderly family members who rely on you, life insurance can provide the money to hire professional in-home care. When considering life insurance, consider these individuals as potential beneficiaries. Making sure your family is protected with life insurance is one of the most responsible decisions you can make.
