Life Insurance


How Much Life Insurance Do I Need?

  1. One of the old rules used to be five to eight times your annual income. So, if you earned $40,000 per year, you should have $200,000 to $320,000 of coverage. The government raised that limit for the beneficiaries of New York's' 9/11 victims and allowed for ten to twenty times the annual income which becomes $400,000 to $800,000 for an annual salary of $40,000.
  2. One of the easiest methods is what amount would I need at X% interest to compensate for my loss of income without invading the principal. If, for example, I wanted to make sure my family had $20,000 coming in plus social security, I would need $400,000 at 5% interest to generate the $20,000 a year.

In that way, in the event of another serious issue, the principal would be available to spend for common needs like college or medical bills or an unforeseen disaster. When it seems that things can't get any worse, remember, they often do.
