Is Life Insurance a Good Investment?

If you’re wondering whether life insurance is a good investment, the answer may be more complicated than a simple yes or no. When you get life insurance, you pay premiums to the life insurance company. In turn, it pays money to your beneficiary or your estate following your death. The amount of money paid out will depend on the coverage you purchase. Depending on how you set up your life insurance, it can cover specific payments, such as rent or mortgage.

Background

How much you pay in premiums is determined by personal factors such as the sum being insured, your age, health, and risky behaviors. For example, if you are a heavy smoker, you will pay more. The higher the risk, the higher the premium. Currently, most people consider life insurance to be a sort of a ‘luxury’ on the market. The subject can be tricky for many millennials who may be afraid of taking the plunge.

Benefits

In reality, however, life insurance can be a fantastic investment and the advantages far exceed the disadvantages. Since the premiums are based on risk, the younger you start, the higher your return will be. The biggest advantage that life insurance offers, however, is to those you leave behind. If you pass away without a life insurance, your family might struggle to cover your debts, bills, mortgage, funeral replacements and more.

Life insurance can be a smart investment for anyone who has dependents or a partner who relies on their income (stay-at-home moms and dads). Also, for anyone who has a family that lives in a house where you cover the mortgage. Since life insurance is not taxable, it also offers tax benefits to your family. Any dividends paid out by the company will accumulate tax-deferred. In addition, life insurance comes with unmatched flexibility in terms of which company you choose, as well as, the type of policy, coverage, and duration.

To determine whether a life insurance is a good investment for you, consider your personal circumstances. It all comes down to you and your loved ones’ needs.
