There are many opinions regarding the necessity of buying life insurance policy, especially when the benefits of it emerge merely in the event of a beloved one’s death. It is in human nature not to think of something fatal happening in one’s life, but on the other hand, death is part of life, so whether you like it or not, you have to admit that death might occur when least expected. In this unpredictability lies the necessity of buying life insurance policy for yourself.
If you read this article it means that you have already decided to take this step further, therefore let’s see how one can cut expenses when it comes to paying for the policy:
- Make the right decision!
First of all make a right decision whether or not you need this life insurance. Life insurance’s purpose is to offer your family a financial security after your death. In case you do not have yet this family or someone who depends on you and who is left financially uncovered along with your death, then it makes no sense to purchase this policy. On the other hand, if you have a family that depends on you and your source of income, then life insurance purchase is definitely a good decision for you.
- Look for the best option possible!
Look for the option of cheap term life insurance. Term life insurance is set for a number of years (10, 15, 20, or 30) and can be claimed only as a benefit in case of death. There is as well another type – whole or permanent life insurance that involves dividends and interests, but this one comes with high costs to pay on regular basis. So you would better opt for the first type which comes evidently with cheaper costs.
- Ask your employer!
Your employer might offer low cost group insurance option. As an employee you can be offered as a benefit with life insurance coverage inside a group, which in this case comes with really low premiums, so you can take advantage of this one as well.
- Make sure that your credit score is good!
Before applying for life insurance coverage. If this one is poor you might be offered with higher premium options, so get your credit score repaired first.
- Give up smoking!
This doesn’t only save you money in the long run (around $2,000 per year if you smoke a pack per day) but also insurance companies will set higher rates (some of them even charge double for a smoker than they charge for a non-smoker) for life insurance applicants who smoke.
- Try to make only a few premium payments!
If you decide to pay the total amount of premium in fewer installments than the premium set per year will be lower. Take note that there are insurers who set 20% more for a premium when paid in monthly rates.
- Look for free life insurance quotes!
With so many insurance companies out there you must be aware that competition can be very tough, and as a result you can always find convenient costs for your life insurance plan. Do your research and your efforts will be rewarded.
