Balloons Spelling Out 30At age 30, many people worry about the cost of their mortgage or saving for their child's education. Yet, many parents don't think about what might happen if they were not there to provide for their children.

Life insurance can help minimize those risks. Buying life insurance at age 30 may still be very affordable. Acting now can also give you more options to select from to better fit your needs.

The following tips can help guide you through the life insurance shopping process.

1. Estimate Your Debts And Financial Needs Now

If you're buying life insurance at a young age, it's important to consider the value of your income. Do you have a mortgage or other debt? How much of your monthly income is used to support your family's needs?

Having an idea of how much money your family needs to pay the bills each month can help you learn how much insurance to buy.

2. Consider Insurance Types

Life insurance is available in numerous forms. There are two basic types to consider:
  • Term Life Insurance remains in place for a set amount of time, such as 10 years. It pays out only if you die during that time.
  • Whole Life Insurance remains in place as long as you make premium payments. Not only does it pay out after death, but some forms allow you to borrow against it over time.
Think about which type of insurance is best for your needs. How long do you want to keep life insurance in place?

3. Recognize Costs Now

The sooner you buy life insurance, the less expensive it will be. Younger people, including those who are 30 years old, are likely to be healthy. Still, you should expect to have a medical physical when you apply for coverage.

Consider the costs you would pay now buy buying coverage. Then, consider those costs if you waited even five years. It's likely those costs would be higher.

4. Make Life Insurance Part Of Your Financial Plan

Life insurance doesn't just provide protection after your passing. It can also be a part of your estate plan now. Work with a financial advisor to create a solid plan for managing your investment in insurance long-term.

5. Modify Your Insurance As Needed

Life insurance isn't a policy that remains unchanged long term. You will want to take a close look at it every year. If circumstances change, you'll want to make changes as you see fit.

Life insurance safeguards your family's financial needs if you are not there to do so. Invest the time in comparing policies and finding an affordable policy.
