Five important points to keep in mind when thinking about purchasing life insurance. Know why you're buying it, how much coverage is needed, whether to buy term or permanent, choosing additional options and affordability. There is no "perfect policy" that is suitable for everybody. The only perfect policy is one that is in force at the time of death of the life insured. Start by discussing with your family what your objective is for purchasing life insurance, and speak to a licensed insurance professional about your different options.
