Why life insurance is a good idea, even if you don’t have children
There are a lot of benefits to having a life insurance policy, and not all of them relate to providing for children in the event of a parent’s death. If you are child-free and are wondering if life insurance is something you need, the answer may surprise you.
At a minimum, most people benefit from carrying a policy covering burial expenses. Even if your estate has the necessary funds to cover such costs, they could be tied up for a while after your death. A life insurance death benefit is paid out immediately to your beneficiary, ensuring they will not have to endure any financial difficulty.
And, if you opt for a whole life policy, several living benefits are provided in addition to the death benefit. You will be able to accumulate value that can be accessed during your lifetime. These funds can help to fund retirement or pay for other major life expenses.
