Insurance premiums will be different for each person depending on the type of insurance they choose. Age, gender, smoking status, build, lifestyle, occupation and medical history will be factors in determining the cost of your insurance.
When should I consider getting insurance?
It’s never too early to consider getting life insurance since the younger and healthier you are, the less expensive the premiums will be. However, there are a few points in life you should consider reviewing your life insurance coverage: marriage, divorce, having a child, when retirement planning and estate planning.
If you have a business, you should review your life insurance coverage to make sure you have enough to cover any debts, fund buy sell arrangements or insure a key person.
