Choosing A Life Insurance Policy

Written By ibnu hajar on Monday, May 2, 2011 | 6:41 AM

When it comes to buying your life insurance, you can't be too careful. There are so many important reasons why you need life insurance. After you're gone, you can't go back and choose the right life insurance policy if you make a mistake today. That's why it is so important to carefully select the right policy for you and for your family.
One thing to look at when it comes to life insurance policies is to make sure the policy is guaranteed to be renewable. What this means, essentially, is that you can pay your premium each year without a required health exam. Depending on your particular situation, you may not be able to find a policy like this, or you may only be able to find one that requires you to get a health exam every few years.
Life insurance is one of the most important investments you can make for your family. Find out exactly what to look for and how to comparison shop to get the best policy to meet your needs at the best price.
You should also carefully examine the terms of your life insurance policy. Some policies are annual policies, and they come up every year. Some policies go for terms of several years, from five years all the way up to thirty years. Longer term policies will help you to get a better overall rate. However, you'll probably also pay higher costs up front in exchange for having a lower rate as time goes on. If you choose a longer term policy of this nature, be sure to find out what will happen if you cancel the policy after just a few years, as you will have overpaid the policy.
Another thing to look for when shopping for a longer term life insurance policy is one where the premium doesn't rise over the life of the policy. Some policies also have a cash value, which means that you can at some point convert the policy to cash. These policies, sometimes known as "convertible" policies, often don't cost any more than a regular policy. You can then covert the policy to cash and use it for a special circumstance, such as a large purchase or to pay for a wedding.
Comparison shopping is critical when it comes to life insurance. You need to make sure that you're comparing like policies, not just the cost in the quote. Some policies will, of course, cost less, but others may provide more benefits. The cost of a life insurance policy is usually based on three things: the amount of the benefit that is paid upon your death, your health status and your age.
One of the best ways to shop for life insurance policies is online. Using online services, you can actually compare the various policies offered by different companies. You can get quotes from a variety of sources, and then decide which policy is right for you and which policy fits your budget. Make sure, again, that you’re comparing like policies so that you know exactly what benefits each policy will offer you and your loved ones.
