Can I get life insurance without a physical exam?

Yes, you can. Whole life insurance policies don’t require a physical exam. This is insurance for the long haul and is usually more costly than term life insurance, but it also earns dividends. Some companies advertise term life without a physical, but it will be more expensive, and it is usually for smaller amounts of life insurance. 

Do I need my own life insurance if I get life insurance at work?

Life insurance from an employer is a great benefit. But letting your employer be in control of something as important to your financial future is not the best option. You should purchase your own life insurance in the amount that you know you will need and consider the work insurance as a bonus. 

How do I know how much life insurance I need?

Having an independent insurance agent who knows you and your needs is helpful. The purpose of life insurance is to provide for your dependents if your income is taken away. You need to multiply your income by the number of years you think you will need to provide for. If you have a large mortgage, that is a consideration as well. 

Do I need life insurance if I have no dependents?

If you have enough money in your checking account or savings to pay off any debt you have and pay for your final expenses, then no, you don’t.
