6 Reasons Single People May Need Life Insurance

6 Reasons Single People May Need Life Insurance

1. You have student loan debt. Many people assume that your debt dies with you, but it’s not always the case. If you were to die, personal loans that have a co-signer are generally not forgiven. That means if your parents co-signed your student loan at the bank, they would be responsible for paying the rest of the loan if something happened to you. There are instances when the bank has called for the loan to be paid in full immediately following a death. You don’t want to leave your parents dealing with grief and loan payments.

2. You’re living with your significant other. When you’re living together, a lot becomes shared financial responsibility. What if you need both your incomes to meet the mortgage or rent where you’re living. Have you thought about what happens if one of you dies prematurely? Would the other partner have to sell up? Find a new place to live immediately? And this is just one example of many shared financial responsibilities couple have. Adequate life insurance is an easy answer to those questions.

Don’t wait until a health issue or age puts life insurance out of your reach.
 
5. You know you’ll be taking care of family members in the future. This may mean aging parents or perhaps you have a special-needs sibling that you help care for and support financially. What would happen to them if something happened to you and your support disappeared? Life insurance can ensure that there is money in place to fund those needs into the future. This is where it might be wise to consider a permanent life insur-ance policy (one that’s there for your lifetime, as long as you pay your premiums).
 
6. It will pay for your funeral. No one likes to think about such things, but the truth is if you die, someone will have to pay for your funeral.
