How to buy life insurance

Many consumers are approached by life insurance agents or life sales representatives and are asked to consider canceling their current life insurance policy in order to purchase a replacement policy. In most cases, the cash value of the current life policy is used to buy more insurance or a new policy.

While a decision to replace an existing life insurance policy may be a good one, sometimes this may not be in your best interest. More than likely you purchased your policy with a long term financial plan in mind. Replacing or changing your insurance policy at this point may affect the intended results of your overall financial plan.

If you are considering replacing or changing your life insurance policy, you should first assess your needs and determine what is in your own long term best interest. It is also important to consider the interests of those you are protecting. Deciding how much insurance you need, how long it is needed, and which policy provides the best coverage is crucial to your financial security.

Your financial needs should be thoroughly evaluated before changes are made in existing policies. Any change in your personal circumstances since you first purchased life insurance may require a different strategy. A comprehensive evaluation may indicate that replacing or changing your policy is in fact advisable. However, certain cautions are appropriate when considering replacing or changing your life insurance.
