Students and recent college grads have good reason to view the world as their oyster. Their whole lives are before them, and with their fresh perspectives and newly minted education, they’re ready to go out there and make their mark on the world. Unless they have dependents or a spouse, however, they tend to overlook the possibility of an early or accidental death, and the ramifications it would have on those they would leave behind.
College education today is expensive, and few can afford it without some kind of loan. Often these loans are co-signed or guaranteed by parents or other more financially secure members of one’s family or community. If you were to prematurely die, however, your co-signed college loan along with any co-signed credit card balances and car loans would survive you, and your loved ones would be left with not only their grief, but your debts as well.
Another consequence of premature death young people tend to overlook is the cost of their funeral and burial. At an average cost of $10,000, few families are in a position - without a life insurance policy - to provide the kind of services for their loved one that would bring them the most comfort in their time of grief.
Rates for term life insurance are at an all-time low, and because they are based primarily on health and age, there is no better time to lock in a low rate than now. Securing a good life insurance policy now can provide peace of mind for many years to come, and help to guarantee that your loved ones will be able to heal emotionally without the stress of your financial obligations.
