What You Need to Know about Minnesota Life Insurance

What is life insurance?

Life insurance policies are sold by insurance companies to help meet the financial needs of your loved ones in the event of your death.

Why should I purchase Minnesota life insurance?

Many experts consider life insurance to be the foundation of sound financial planning. A Minnesota life insurance policy can help protect your family in the event of your death by providing a supplemental income to pay for bills, taxes and other necessities.

How much life insurance do I need?

Many experts suggest using this formula to give a ballpark figure of your life insurance needs: Short term expenses + Long term expenses – Resources = How much Minnesota life insurance you need.

Short term expenses can be broken down into three categories:

  1. Final Expenses — funeral, burial and attorney costs.
  2. Outstanding Debts — credit card debt, college or auto loans.
  3. Emergency Expenses — medical emergencies, repair to home or car.

Long term expenses include your mortgage and college tuition for your dependants.

Once you've tallied your income needs you can figure out what resources you already have to put towards them. Make sure to include any extra cash, savings, Social Security and pension. You will want to subtract these resources from your total expenses. This will give you an approximate amount of Minnesota life insurance suitable for you and your family.

What kind of Minnesota life insurance should I buy?

There are two basic kinds of Minnesota life insurance — Term Life and Whole, (also known as Permanent) Life.

Term Life

Term life is the most common type of Minnesota life insurance as it is considered the simplest form of life insurance. It provides protection for a specific period of time. Terms generally last anywhere from 5 to 30 years and must be renewed. It is important to note that a death benefit will only be granted if you die during your term.

Many people choose term life insurance because its initial premiums are generally lower, allowing you to buy more at a young age. Term life is also good for covering needs that will be alleviated with time, such as mortgages or car loans.

It is important to note that term life insurance premiums increase as you age, thus you may not be able to afford to renew them. A Minnesota term life insurance policy generally does not offer a cash value.

Whole Life

A Minnesota whole life insurance policy offers you lifelong protection, which means as long as you pay the premiums a death benefit will be paid.

With a Minnesota whole life insurance policy, premium costs can be fixed or flexible to accommodate your financial needs. A whole life insurance policy will also earn a cash value which differs significantly from a term life policy. You may borrow against this cash value, but all loans must be paid back or your beneficiary will receive a reduced death benefit.

It is important to note that a Minnesota whole life insurance plan is considered by some to be difficult to maintain due to required premium levels.

It is important for you to research the different types of Minnesota life insurance plans in order to find one that is most suited for you and your family.
