If you haven’t had kids, however, that doesn’t mean that term life insurance isn’t for you. You should also consider term life insurance if you have just bought a house or are getting married. If you have someone else depending on your income, such as a child or a spouse, you should have term life insurance so that they are taken care of.

There are many types of life insurance. They exist in the instance that if you should die, your life insurance policy will pay money to your loved ones (beneficiaries).
