How much life insurance is enough is not a simple one size fits all answer. To come up with an amount that is right for you, several things have to be considered. After you have analyzed the answers to the following questions, you will be better able to come up with a figure that makes sense.
Who depends on you?
Are you responsible for providing monetary support to anyone beyond yourself? If you are young and single and your parents and siblings are all financially independent, you may need very little life insurance. One thing to keep in mind, however, is whether or not you plan to marry and have children at some point in your life. If that is the case, you will never find life insurance at a lower rate than when you are young and healthy,
How much money do you owe?
You should have enough life insurance to cover any debt you have. If you own a home, that includes your mortgage.
Do you have young children?
Providing for them is one consideration that really matters. Without your income, their lifestyle could be dramatically changed. As a loving parent, you want to make sure they can stay in the home they love and not have any other changes in their life. Consider between 7 and 10 years of your income as the standard for life insurance coverage.
