Term Life Quote Coverage - Part II
Burial and funeral expenses are not getting lower. Thatís true of most service industries, right? Many
families seek closure with a funeral costing many thousands of dollars. So itís really practical and
thoughtful to have these plans made beforehand, wouldnít you say? Youíll want to add this expense to your
Planning on educating your children? This, of course, is going to cost something. Even if your kids are
smart enough to win free education. Youíre smart enough not to depend on that, right? So add this expense.
As you probably know, retirement planning is not just for the government anymore. Once upon a time, it was
a simple plan. You expected Uncle Sam to keep part of your paycheck. Then, they give it back to you some
years later. However, as we know, something went very, very wrong with this idea back in the 1900ís.
Thatís why just about every financial expert alive today will agree: you need to set aside your own money.
How much have you set aside so far? How much do you still need to build? What happens if youíre not there
to keep building this amount? Again, youíll want to add this remaining amount to your insurance coverage
Do you have investments other than your retirement account? Whatís their annual rate of return? Youíll
want to consider what happens if youíre not able to continue making these investments. How important is it
to keep these investments going? Youíll want to include the annual rate of return in with your annual
income before multiplying by the factor of 3-20 that depends on your age, as mentioned above.
In many families, children or other family members have special needs. Perhaps itís continuing medical
expenses. Or a dream project that must be completed. You know more about these needs than anyone else does.
If these things apply, youíll want to make sure these needs are cared for. So, again, youíll want to add
this to your insurance coverage amount.
Another important factor. Does a gallon of gas cost more now than it did in 1950? Silly question, right?
Yes, inflation is a super important factor to include when considering your familyís needs. Youíll want to
factor the growing inflation into your insurance coverage amount.

to protect your family. And for considering these, youíre to be congratulated for caring about them. After
all, isnít that what insurance is for?
