How much life insurance do you need? There are a number of factors to consider in determining the type of coverage and how much life insurance would be appropriate for you and your family’s needs:
- Who depends on your financial contributions for their well-being?
- What is your annual income? As a rule of thumb, insurance coverage should be 5 to 7 times your annual earnings, after taxes.
- What debts do you have?
- How close are you to retirement? Generally speaking, as you get closer to retirement the less death benefit associated with your life insurance product is needed.
