Life insurance shopping tip

Term life insurance is a good way to cover specific debts and obligations, such as the years of a mortgage. When you get life insurance quotes, you’ll want to know how much coverage you want and how long you want the policy to last, such as 5, 10, 15, 20 or 30 years. It’s a good idea to match a term life policy to the amount and length of your family’s financial need.
