Life insurance shopping tip

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