Life Insurance FAQs
When is the best time to buy life insurance?
The best time to buy life insurance is as soon as you need it. While it’s true that the younger you are, the less you pay for life insurance, you should only buy it once you’ve determined there’s a need for it (for example, if you’ve started a family).
Are my life insurance premiums tax deductible?
No, the premiums you pay for your life insurance policy are not tax deductible.
What is a death benefit?
The death benefit is the amount of money that a life insurance policy pays to the beneficiary upon the policyholder’s death. It is usually untaxed and paid in a single lump sum.
