Figuring how much life insurance - - -

March 20th, 2007 at 07:28 pm

I've always struggled with this one. I've read you should have 10-20 times your income in life insurance. But, to me that is so general. What about those that don't have debt, or very little debt or those that are in over their heads?
But, I was going through the Suzeorman.com and clicked on Women and Money site and in the 5th month down on the bottom there is a section with a worksheet. This worksheet is excellent!!!!
I sometimes worried that we didn't carry enough, but in actually we have more than enough. I also needed to figure this out this year as my 10 year term policy is almost over and everywhere I read the rates are down. So, I will be checking out pricing.
If anyone has done this lately and knows the best places to try -- let me know. Thanks a bunch!!! I currently am insured through Prudential.

Kiplinger's Magazine

Funny how things change. About 10 years ago, my older brother bought me a year subscription to Kiplinger's. I would skim through it but really didn't get into it.

NOW, when I get it out of the mailbox -- I actually smile. Silly, I know. But, I love that magazine. I now read it cover to cover. It just shows how much I've grown up in the past 10 years and how much I've learned by reading and reading and reading more about financial stuff.

Now, I subcribe to Kiplinger's, Money, SmartMoney, Fortune and Forbes.

Anybody, know of any others that I should subscribe to?
