One of the first questions people ask when shopping for term life insurance is how much is it going to cost them. Most people know that owning a life insurance policy is a good idea, but not everyone thinks that they can afford to purchase a policy. The good news is that it’s more budget-friendly than you might think.
Say you’re a mom who wants to ensure her children are protected financially in the event that she suddenly dies. You also earn a significant portion of your household’s family income and worry that if you were to pass your husband would be unable to shoulder the daily living expenses plus help put your children through college. For this reason, you’re considering a term life insurance policy with a 25 year term.
So how much is term life insurance for a mom? Well, really that depends on the mom and specifically her health and/or age. Life insurance companies price their policies according to the level of risk they feel they’re taking by insuring an individual. If you’ve got pre-existing health conditions or are at-risk for health conditions in the future, you will likely end up having to pay more for your life insurance policy.
