Important Facts about Illinois Life Insurance

You should consider buying Illinois life insurance if:

  • You're married and your spouse depends on your income
  • You have an aging parent or disabled relative who depends on your income
  • You have children
  • Your retirement pension, savings or other assets won't provide your loved ones adequate support when you die
  • You have a large estate and expect to owe estate taxes
  • You own a business

"What types are available, and what are the benefits of each?"

Illinois life insurance can be purchased on an individual or a group basis. Most group plans are provided by employers, and are usually term life insurance that is renewed yearly. Illinois residents who are unemployed, self-employed or not able to purchase life insurance through their employer should consider an individual life insurance plan.

Life insurance in Illinois is obtainable in two types: term life and whole life (sometimes called permanent life). We've assembled a few key points about each type below to help you determine which insurance category you should consider.

Term Life

  • Purchased for a specific time period; usually one, five, 10 or 20 years—or up to age 60 or 65
  • Benefits paid only if you die while the policy is in effect
  • Generally cheaper than whole life insurance
  • Usually more practical for those who need a large amount of coverage for a particular period of time
  • Ends when you stop paying premiums or at the end of the specified term
  • May be "convertible" to a whole life policy

Whole Life

  • Provides lifetime coverage
  • Accumulates cash value over time
  • May pay you dividends
  • Keeps premium rates stable as long as the policy is in effect

Illinois life insurance agents can explain these characteristics further and help you determine which type of life insurance is appropriate for you.

"How much life insurance should I buy?"

Determining your current need for life insurance and how much you can afford to spend is the first step in deciding how much Illinois life insurance to buy. Some of the factors you should consider in making this determination are marital status, family size, number of dependents and income. Examine the financial resources your dependents would have if you died now, and what they would need to maintain their current standard of living. Take all assets and income into consideration, including savings, investments, personal property and any real estate owned. Conversely, consider your family's cost of living, educational costs, and any other potential financial needs. Then closely examine your budget and living expenses to determine a comfortable, affordable monthly premium.
