There are many situations that may cause a person to change their life insurance policy. Many of those situations tend to be huge life changes that require a person, and maybe a family, to rethink everything they are doing.
Here are the biggest reasons to make an adjustment to your insurance:
Deaths, Births, Marriages, and Divorces
If there ever is an extreme life event in your family, it only makes sense to reevaluate your life insurance coverage. Changes like these usually change the reality of your finances in a major way. When a spouse dies, the other caretaker will became responsible for the entire family. Even if the left over caretaker is older with a significant amount of savings under their belt, they will still needed more life insurance.
This idea goes both ways. When you’re rejoicing and moving your kids out of the house to become independent adults, your financial burdens are reduced. Though you may miss your lovelies, you may get a chance to snag a new job and reduce your need for life insurance. Likewise, you may find it harder to gain an advantage while losing your children and find need to make an adjustment to you life insurance.
Change in Financial Situation
Financial situations always seem to negatively change from one thing, losing a job. Typically when someone loses their job, they tend to lose their life insurance coverage, too. Without producing the income needed to pay for life insurance, someone unemployed will ultimately drop their existing coverage. Someone in this situation would need more insurance, but cut his premiums. switching from whole life insurance to term would be a smart move for anyone who may find themselves in this situation.
It is common for other financial situation changes to cause a person to be in need less life insurance. If you sell a property or business, for example, you might suddenly have so much liquid cash that you really don’t need life insurance.
