For some people life insurance seems easy to understand however it can be more complex than thought. at first glance For others particularly those who don t know much about it it might seem highly. complex In reality it s neither simple nor complex which is why the best path is to be a well educated. consumer And the best place to start is not with a discussion of life insurance options but instead with. a close look at your own needs Answer the questions within this step the best you can but don t worry. about getting everything absolutely inflexibly right This exercise isn t about perfection no one can. know the future for sure anyhow This is about ball parking it It s about taking a best guess It s about. considering where you are now where you want to go and where you want your loved ones to be in case. the worst comes to pass As Master Yoda would say In motion the future is. 1 EXPLORING WHY YOU NEED LIFE INSURANCE, Following are a number of scenarios or life situations that support a need for life insurance Put a check. next to the descriptions below that best correspond to your needs for life insurance. 1 I m a primary breadwinner for my family I have young children and my family is. absolutely dependent on my income If I were to die tomorrow they would be in. big trouble, 2 I ve got debt I have mortgages car loans credit cards student loans or some. other form of large significant debt that I couldn t burden my family or. cosigners with if I passed away tomorrow It would break them. 3 I don t want to burden my family with the costs of my funeral. 4 I m saving for my child s or children s private school or college education If I. passed away the kind of education that I d like to be able to provide my child or. children would very well be out of reach,5 I want to have an emergency fund.
6 I have a special needs child who absolutely depends on my income for his or her. care probably for the rest of his or her life, 7 I m worried about estate taxes I want my family to have liquidity upon my death. to fund the estate tax liability, 8 I d like to donate a sizable amount to charity once I pass but I don t necessarily. want to significantly reduce the amount of my estate donated to heirs. 9 I want to make sure my heirs each get an equal share of my assets when I pass away. 10 I ve got assets that haven t been taxed yet a tax deferred retirement account for. instance and I don t want my family to be burdened with those taxes or for. those taxes to reduce the benefit my family receives upon my death. 11 I m in a second or third or beyond marriage or domestic partnership and. I d like to provide my new partner with financial security I want to avoid any. conflict that may arise about my estate once I pass. Looking at these scenarios you can see that some are broader in context the income dependent. ones and some are much more specific like the handling of estate taxes Which scenarios best describe. your situation will largely depend on how much in assets you have or can reasonably expect to have what. stage of life you re in and your personal family situation Although these aren t even all the reasons for. purchasing life insurance they do capture the most common motivations or reasons for purchasing it. 8 The Questions and Answers on Life Insurance Workbook.
