Do Your Children Need Life Insurance Coverage?

By Kristine Librado

There are many people out there who simply think that purchasing life insurance coverage for children is morbid and just plain wrong. The thing is though, life insurance is not about getting rich off of a person’s death. Of course you would not want to benefit financially from the death of a child. However, funeral costs are extremely expensive. The average family simply does not have enough money in the back to cover these expenses in the event something were to go wrong.

If your child were to pass on, you would be experiencing a lot of sadness and anger. The last thing you want to do is have to worry about how you are going to give your child the funeral that he deserves. You would probably want to make sure that your child is given the best funeral possible. Of course, this would cost a lot of money and not all funeral homes are able or willing to make payment arrangements for fancy funerals. The best thing you can do is to make sure that everything would be covered through the purchase of life insurance for your child.

Since more adults pass on than children, the average cost of this coverage is not going to be all that expensive. In fact, many people find that they are able to find $10,000 worth of coverage for as little as ten dollars a month. Since the average funeral costs between $5,000 and $7,000, you want to be prepared. That extra bit of money can be used to help cover household expenses as you would obviously take time off of work to mourn the loss of your child.

Another reason to go ahead and purchase life insurance for your child is that it is a policy that can transfer into your child’s name when he reaches adulthood. Many companies will keep the rate the same and never increase it. This means that your child will grow up to have a policy that is much cheaper than anything that they would go and get on their own. This will save your child a lot of money as he grows older.

Obviously thinking about the death of a child is very hard to handle. It is a difficult and sensitive subject and one that should not be taken lightly. You need to make sure that you are getting past the emotion of it and simply prepare for the worse case scenarios as this is best for everyone involved. Look for companies that specialize in this type of coverage and start comparing rates. Signing up is easy and as long as you keep up on the payments, you won’t have to put much more thought into it. It is important though that you do not delay in getting the policy up and running!
