How much life insurance is enough?

Life insurance is different from most other kinds of insurance. It isn’t about protecting you, it is about protecting your loved ones. It is no easy task to determine the amount of life insurance that will make you feel comfortable, but it can be done. At The Sirover Agency LLC in Wayne, PA, we take our roles as independent insurance agents seriously. We are in a position to offer more insurance products from a variety of carriers. 

How much life insurance is enough?

Your stage of life

Part of determining how much life insurance is enough is to take your stage of life into consideration. When you are young and have no dependents, you probably need very little life insurance. As you age and buy a house, get married, and have children, your insurance needs grow exponentially. After the children leave home and you retire, your life insurance needs also decrease. 

Your income

It seems self-evident that the amount of income you make and your family uses will have an effect on the amount of life insurance you will need to replace that income. 

Your lifestyle

Everyone has different needs and what you consider a normal amount of expenditure may seem excessive or lacking to someone else. You need to take a good look at your budget. 

Your dependents

The number and age of your dependents is a major factor in how much life insurance is enough. If you have young children, you may need to provide for them for many years. If you have more than one child, that also adds to your needs. If your spouse is a stay-at-home spouse, that also needs to be considered.
