Article by Leo Liu
Life insurance in many cases is a very good product to purchase. It is great if you have a spouse, high debt, and children that are depending on you. If something were to happen to you, they would have this money to live on after you are gone. While you can go out and purchase any policy, you might find that some are a bit more expensive than you like. Below we will discuss what you can do that will help you lower your life insurance premiums.
If you are not that healthy, do your best to get healthy. Start working out and trying to lose some weight. This alone will significantly lower your premiums quite a bit.
If you are a smoker, you need to do your best to quit. It will make your rates go down after you quit. While it might be very hard, this is a great thing to do to not only save money on insurance but also on your long term health as well.
Drinking can be a problem for life insurance rates. If you are a heavy drinker, this can add to the costs. Cut back on drinking or quit drinking entirely.
Do not commit crimes. These can make your rates go up. Certain crimes that danger your health like drug charges or driving dangerously will make your rates go up. Do not do these things and you will save money on your life insurance.
Get term life insurance. Some debate about the benefits of whole life insurance, but in every case term is going to be cheaper. Take your savings and invest them elsewhere to get the same benefits as a whole life plan.
Find out if you can pay quarterly or even yearly. Many times with these types of payments you will save money versus paying on a monthly basis.
If you are healthy, never get a guaranteed life insurance plan. These are designed for those who might have health issues and will not qualify for other plans. If healthy, qualify on your own and get a good rate.
Buy only the amount of coverage you think your family will need. If getting too much, you are going to end up paying significantly more for it.
