Deciding about the amount of life insurance

21 May, 2009 By:Unknown in Life Insurance,

People go for various life insurance policies due to their many benefits. The amount of life insurance depends on many factors. Ideally the sum assured should provide for all the needs of your family like children's education and marriage while meeting the daily basic expenses when the insured person is no more. It may not be an easy decision to make. First of all, your income level has to permit you to opt for the policy that you want to take. Your need may be more than the disposable income you can spare for paying premiums. Even if you want a higher sum assured the insurer need not oblige you citing your income.

There are many factors that influence the kind of insurance amount a person needs. One way of doing it is to calculate the level of income a family needs to maintain its standard of living when the breadwinner is not around. For example if a family's present need is Rs 20,000 p.m., then the extent of life insurance for its earning members should be such that interest income from the sum assured can meet the family's monthly expenses of Rs 20,000.

Age is also a big factor in deciding for insurance amount. Young people with no dependents may not have much need for life insurance. As one's family responsibility grows, there is need for life insurance. When one is single he may not bother much about life insurance. However, at middle age a person having children will feel the need to have a bigger amount of life insurance as the need to give good education to children and marriage expenses will dog him. Thus, a periodic review based on your family circumstances is required in order to ensure that the coverage is adequate. A person employed in some hazardous profession will need more life insurance cover than an ordinary individual.

In fact, the amount of insurance one should buy is dependent on his/her economic value, which is also called human life value. It can vary depending on individuals.

I am writing this Testimony because am really grateful for what Mercedes Lucas did for me and my family, when I thought there was no hope he came and make my family feel alive again by lending us loan at a very low interest rate of 3%. Well I have been searching for a loan to settle my debts for the past three months all I met scammed and took my money until I finally met a God sent Lender. I never thought that there are still genuine loan lenders on the internet but to my greatest surprise i got my loan without wasting much time so if you are out there looking for a loan of any amount i would advise you to email via: { }and be free of internet scams. thanks...

You have to have your insurance and dotcor change your address in their records. I got my own insurance and live on my own. The insurance has my new address but the dotcor didnt. So I had to make sure both were changed.

After getting rejected for a home loan by two banks I thought my wish of owning a home in a city like Mumbai will remain a dream. By chance I came to your site and applied for the loan.

What happened then was a smooth process. It's been my good luck to visit your site and get loan for my dream home.
