LIFE INSURANCE

Life insurance is meant to replace your income if you die prematurely. If you’re married, in a committed relationship, or have children who depend on your income, you need life insurance. Or, if any of these could be in your future. Don't forget, if you have a stay-at-home spouse or partner caring for your home and children, you would be faced with some very substantial costs to replace those services if he or she dies.
