Life insurance planning is the process of evaluating, recommending, and implementing appropriate life insurance coverage based on an individual’s or family’s specific needs, goals, and financial situation. It is an integral part of a comprehensive financial plan, ensuring that loved ones and financial commitments are taken care of in the event of the insured’s untimely demise.
Type of Insurance: There are various types of life insurance products available:
Policy Riders: These are additional benefits or features that can be added to a basic policy, often for an extra cost. Examples include accelerated death benefits, waiver of premium for disability, and accidental death benefits.
Funding Strategy: This involves deciding on the method and frequency of premium payments. Some policies offer flexibility in payment schedules, while others might have fixed premiums.
Review and Adjustment: Life insurance needs might change over time. Regular reviews ensure that coverage remains adequate and aligned with one’s evolving financial and personal circumstances.
Tax Implications: Depending on jurisdiction, the death benefit, cash surrender values, and policy loans might have tax implications. It’s essential to understand these aspects when planning.
