When should I review my life coverage

Life insurance an important thing you can do for your family. It is a way to show them how much you love them. Unlike your home and auto insurance, you don’t get a yearly renewal on your life insurance so you may just pay the premium and not think about it.  At Family Insurance Associates in Ruidoso, NM, we know that the amount of life insurance you need to protect your loved one changes over your lifetime and should be reviewed particularly when there are major changes in your life.

Job change

One of the benefits most jobs offer is life insurance. When you change jobs you may be able to retain your life insurance by taking over the premium yourself. This may not be the best option. You should talk to your personal insurance agent to see what they have to offer before you decide on the best option. 

Purchase a home

A home is a huge financial responsibility and you need adequate coverage if something happens to you. Leaving your family or loved ones to figure out how to pay your mortgage is a bad thing. 

Getting married

When you get married you will change the beneficiary on your life insurance. While you are talking to your insurance professional take the time to evaluate the amount of coverage you have.  

Having children

Children change your life in many ways. Making sure that they will be able to continue the same life you provide if you are not there to provide for them is vital. This figure depends on the age and number of children as well as your income.
