I Need Your Help Please, Purchasing Life & Disability Insurance

October 2nd, 2017 at 03:17 am

Hi all 👋🏾

I am considering purchasing term life insurance and wanted your input on the best option for me.

I have no kids and currently do not own a home. I have a ton of debt, close to 100k, over half of this is student loans. I've purchased a plot for me to buried next to my dad so we are good there. I've told my family no funeral, just a grave side ceremony. Funerals are too expensive. I'm 43. I was considering a term life of 30 years, at 50k. I figured, I'm paying down debt did not need anything over that. For the year, Zander quoted me about $250. My current employer offer basic life but that's just 1x your annual salary.

Can you all weigh in? I truly value your opinions.

Oops, what are your thoughts on LTD? 2 years, 3 years? I'm currently at $48,000 annually.

    I am not sure you need life insurance with no kids, or maybe just a little to take care of burial etc. But disability insurance might be very smart.

    My question would be if you did not have health insurance and died, what would happen to your debt? Are other funds in addition to your work life plan (maybe retirement) available that could pay that off in the event of your death?

    In your shoes, I would skip any extra life insurance. If you die, whatever is in your estate would go to the creditors. They would be out of luck on any shortage. The one times your salary life insurance would cover your burial.

    Disability insurance is entirely different. Having something beyond Social Security Disability in the event you are disabled is especially important if you do not have other assets to tap.

    Skip it for now. And you probably don't need 30 years either way.
