The Benefits of Getting Life Insurance While You're Still Young

If you're an adult who's younger than 35 and you don't have life insurance, you shouldconsider signing up for a policy. This advice may sound like something you shouldn't have to worry about for a few years, but the longer you wait, the more you'll have to pay for a policy. Women who are younger than 35, don't smoke or drink, and have a clean driving record can secure the cheapest premiums.

When considering life insurance policies, think about how the millennial generation can receive the lowest insurance premiums. They qualify for these premiums because they're young and generally in good health — excluding those who practice certain habits. Getting a policy while you're young allows you to lock in a rate for either term or whole life insurance. As you age and expand your family with a spouse and children or develop health issues, you'll still be covered and will pay the same rate you always have. This arrangement allows you to care for your family even if you're still planning for the future at this point in life.

A life insurance policy can cover college costs for your children or help pay off student loans. If you don't have any co-signers, student loans get waived upon the death of the policyholder. However, if you have co-signers, they'll have to pay those loans. Having a life insurance policy can mitigate that burden. Quiz yourself on Health IQ with some life insurance facts, and learn more about the reasons to get life insurance while you're still young.
