Do you find getting life insurance a hassle?

We understand that you may find it hard and confusing to find the right life insurance policy for your needs.

You may be struggling to find what company should you trust to take care of your policy, 

Or you’re simply overwhelmed by the thousands of online quotes you’ve seen but can’t decide which one to choose?

     That’s why we have simplified the process of getting insurance...

    ...to make sure your family is protected at a reasonable cost- with no headaches involved!

    This will get you ten steps away from the seven most common mistakes people make when buying such as:

    Choosing the wrong type of policy

    Purchasing a policy you have limited knowledge about is like buying shoes without knowing your size. This often results in getting a policy that doesn’t fit your needs and can hurt your finances in the long run. 

    Remember that there are two major types of life insurance policies: Term and PermanentTerm insurance is the less expensive type of insurance but it only provides coverage for a fixed time—often 10, 15,20, or 30 years. 


    Permanent life is a policy that provides lifetime coverage and combines a death benefit and a cash value you can access during your lifetime- but has a more expensive premium.

    When buying, you need to make sure that the life insurance choice you make can cover your insurance needs the moment you need it. 

    Trying to save too much

    Who doesn’t want to save on their premiums, right? But choosing the cheapest policy out there is not always the wisest move.

    Many want to choose a term life policy because it is the cheapest. However, it's actually not the best solution if you get older. The reason? Premiums will skyrocket when renewing in later years because term life coverage is designed as a short-term option and only costs less when you're young and healthy.

    Also, to save money, some try to buy less coverage than what they really need leaving them underinsured. This in fact costs them more in the long run as it leaves them without coverage when they need it the most. 

    Buying the wrong amount of coverage

    Some failed at getting enough coverage for their needs because they ignore this simple fact: The amount of life insurance you need is based on how much money will be left for your beneficiaries after all long-term financial obligations are met. It should replace your income and ensure it can sustain your family's financial needs.

    This will give you a good estimate of the amount of coverage you need. So, better if you try to consult this with a licensed insurance broker to get the exact numbers.

    Relying on group life insurance

    While this sounds ideal,  this is not always the best way to get coverage for the following reasons: 

    -Your life insurance policy is reliant to your job. If you lose your job, you lose your employer-provided life insurance as well.

    -You'll have limited choices since your employer often only have one insurer. So you won’t have as many options for various term lengths, coverage, and premiums that are available outside your workplace.

    -Is not as cost-efficient as you think because you’re missing out on cheaper life insurance rates that offer more sufficient coverage for their needs. 

    Withholding information during application

    During your application, you’ll be asked questions like your occupation, your medical history, driving records, hobbies, etc. This process allows your insurer to assess your coverage and premiums.

    They will verify this by checking your medical records, previous insurance applications, or through a medical exam.So it’s important to disclose the necessary information to not compromise your coverage.

    Not buying from the right insurer

    People often make one major mistake when it comes time for selecting an appropriate insurer: they simply go along because of how convenient and popular a company is. But it's not all about that.

    Rather, it's important to work with a company that offers good rates, excellent customer service and fair policies - all qualities any person would want in their providers.

    Also, while some want you to always shop around to find insurers that offer the best policy and rates, it's best to remember that it may not save you time and effort if you do this alone. It's always better to work with an independent agent- expert with many companies. It saves time and will get you covered correctly and for the best rate.

    Waiting too long to get life insurance

    While we don’t want you to impulsively purchase a policy, it is also important that you don’t wait too long- because the older you get, the more expensive your policy can become.  

    Most companies consider age and health conditions as major factors in determining the policy premium you may qualify for. As you age and your health weakens, your premiums can get expensive, or worse, you may lose the opportunity to buy a coverage at all.

    These mistakes are often factors that can make your life insurance purchase a pain.
