Mistakes When Buying Life Insurance

There are common mistakes people make when buying life insurance. Making one of these mistakes can hurt the loved ones you are trying to protect. It is essential to apply for the correct amount of coverage and is equally important to choose the right term period to keep the protection in force. For instance, applying for a 10-year term policy to save a few dollars when you need a 15-year term or 20-year term policy can spell future financial disaster. Also, you should consider avoiding buying the cheapest policy you can find. There are other factors to look at other than price. It is important to separate myth from fact. 

1. Procrastinating and waiting too long to buy

2. Buying the wrong amount of coverage

3. Buying too short a term period 

4. Choosing the wrong company & purchasing the cheapest policy

5. Relying solely on group life insurance offered through employment

6. Naming a minor child as a beneficiary

7. Not comparing life insurance rates
