Who Needs Life Insurance?
It doesn’t matter how old you are, life insurance is always a good idea. However, not in everyone’s case, is it a necessity. This means that even if you don’t have people depending on you, life insurance could be really helpful, even if it’s just to pay for your own funeral expenses. In the case that you have enough resources to support those who depend on you after you’re gone, life insurance might not be a priority for you.
When’s the Best Time to Get Life Insurance?
The good thing about life insurance is that it is less expensive when you’re young, so getting a policy early on in life could save you some money. Some of the things you want to consider to determine if it’s a good time for you to get life insurance are:

- The point in your life where you are right now
