Tips on Calculating the Amount of Life Insurance You Need
One easy tip is to multiply the amount of your annual salary by 10 in order to determine the adequate amount of coverage that your family needs. This is a good starting point and should be supplemented with $100,000 additional coverage for the college expenses for each child. If you want to take a deeper look at your expenses, try the DIME approach and consider Debt (and burial expenses), Income, Mortgage, and Education. From there you can project the amount of coverage that will be necessary for each category. Our agents can help you to determine the level of coverage that is right for you.
