Maryland Life Insurance Tips

Maryland life insurance helps bridge the gap between your dependents' financial needs and monies available to them through other sources in the event of your death. But life insurance issues can be complicated, and many consumers spend large sums of money every year on premiums that are not well suited to them, their families and their lifestyles.

Before you run out and buy your Maryland life insurance policy, do some research. Your goal should be to get the best coverage at the best possible price. Compare deductibles and other policy specifics, asking questions to clarify anything you do not understand. Many Maryland life insurance policies appear to offer identical coverages; however, when reading the fine print, you may find significant differences actually exist.

"How much life insurance do I need?"

Determining the right amount of Maryland life insurance to buy can be a difficult process. Some life insurance experts recommend purchasing five to ten times your annual income in life insurance protection. However, sometimes this amount is not even enough!

The first step is to determine your current need and how much you can afford to spend. Some of the other factors you should consider in making this determination are:

  • Number of dependents
  • Marital status
  • Income
  • Family size

The following questions can help you more closely settle on an accurate life insurance amount:

  1. How much of my family's income do I provide?
  2. If I died, how would my dependents survive?
  3. Do I need to set aside money for my children's education?
  4. Do any other members of my extended family depend on me financially?
  5. How would my family pay my final expenses and remaining debts if I died?
  6. Are there family members or organizations to which I would like to donate money?
  7. Will any estate taxes be due upon my death?
  8. How will inflation affect my family's future needs?

"What kind should I buy?"

Two types of Maryland life insurance are available:

Term life is the simplest form, and provides financial protection for a temporary period of time. This type of policy may or may not be renewable. Maryland term life policies are normally written for individuals who need large amounts of coverage for specific time periods. Initial premiums for Maryland term life insurance are usually much less than for permanent life insurance, but they may increase each year (or remain level) for a specified period.

Term life insurance provides good coverage for young Maryland families raising children or paying off mortgages. These policies are, however, short term solutions and do not build equity—but monthly costs are low, so individuals with limited resources are able to purchase life insurance protection in Maryland. Most term life policies do not accrue cash value.

Permanent insurance provides Marylanders with long-term financial protection. This includes both a death benefit and, in some cases, cash savings. Permanent insurance equity builds over time—but premiums are higher than those of term insurance. Rates usually remain the same once the policy is purchased. Those who are attempting to meet long-range financial goals do well with this type of insurance.

"What determines my life insurance premium?"

Your premium depends on the type and amount of insurance you buy, as well as your chance of death while the policy is in effect. Risk of death is determined by factors such as your age, gender and medical condition. Other elements Maryland life insurance companies take into consideration include the insurance company's overhead expenses and necessary agent commissions.
