How much life insurance should we get?

How much life insurance should we get?

My husband and I both work; our income split is about 60/40, he being the higher paid. We will both turn 50 within the next year. No children living at home. No substantial debt: Car loan: $185 monthly Student loan: $102 monthly Mortgage: $2,000 monthly No other debt. We never carry a credit card balance. We have about 3 months worth of savings in the bank. Should I base our life insurance on how much we make, how much we have in debt or both? We are living paycheck to paycheck, and if either one of us were to die suddenly, the other would only have a few months to sell the house before we could no longer make the payments. In this market, I don’t think that’s realistic. I was thinking that we would need enough to pay for a funeral, pay off the smaller two loans, and still have enough to live on for at least a year if the house doesn’t sell. Does that sound right? Or should we not worry about paying off the loans…just calculate enough to replace the other’s income for XX many months? If so, how many months should we plan for? Finally, at what rate is life insurance taxed? Is it added to your income and then taxed at the rate for your total income for the year? or is there a flat rate tax? (I think I know the answer to this one, but I want to make sure).

Best Strategy for a basic Level Term Life Insurance?

Anyone have a good source or strategy for getting level term life insurance from a good solid company? I’ve had several agents quote me but they seem high compared to prices that my colleagues have attained. They all seem to shy away from the basic level term life insurance and push multiple riders…its obvious they are trying to maximize their commissions. I’ve considered using a fee-only insurance advisor but the only local one I’ve found is $300 an hour.


Will Verizon Insurance for Samsung Galaxy Note II Cover Shattered Screen?

I have a Verizon Galaxy Note II – I got the phone about a year and a half ago (Dec 2012) and I love it. I was out tonight, and one of my friends accidentally crushed it and now the screen is totally shattered. My question is – will Verizon’s basic insurance for the Samsung Galaxy Note II cover the screen damage in anyway, or am I stuck waiting it out for an upgrade? If the damage is covered, will they fix the phone, or just replace it? Estimate of how much it will cost me?

I had a real high deductible with my other private insurance plan, plus I could be dropped at anytime, and it was a headache to switch ins. companies.

What exact is whole life insurance, and how do life insurance companies profit from selling it?

Agents are always extremely keen about selling my family whole life insurance instead of term. According to the agents, whole life is preferable to term since it does not expire and as a result the beneficiary is guaranteed some payment upon the death of the insured. However, why would the insurance company profit from such a setup if they are bound to pay back an amount that is at least equal to the total amount paid? I have tried to do some research on my own, but I still can’t seem to fully understand this matter. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Why is health insurance so incredibly expensive?

I am 32 years old with high blood pressure and obesity. I just started a new job (a small employer- only 3-4 employees), and we all desperately need health insurance. Kaiser wants to charge me $550 per month for my single policy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!… I only earn 900 per month. If I go with Kaiser, I will only be taking home about 90 dollars each week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is absurd and unconscionable. I guess that Kaiser has a legal right to charge people whatever the hell they want to, but it’s immoral. Wouldn’t you agree? That high of a cost for health insurance is ludicrous.

Homeowner’s and Auto Insurance?

We’ve been with Allstate for home and auto insurance for over 30 years, and they have recently starting screwing with us about renewing out Homeowner’s insurance. We’re pretty sure they are nitpicking about things because they are not writing new policies for Californians, but are keeping existing customers for now. Anyway, I went to the Auto Club this morning and got quotes from them for Home and Auto Insurance and their prices are much better than Allstate’s. What I want to know is anyone’s experience with AAA insurance. Are they a good company to insure with, any problems, etc? Thank you for any information you can provide.

Question for life insurance agents?

I posted my resume on Monster.com and a life insurance company wants me, and I set up an interview for next week, but i was just wondering, how often do you typically make a sale? the job posting, when i looked it up said 7 or 8 sales per week would make about 75k a year. That makes me think it must be hard to sell, and maybe typical is only 1 a week. So tell me about how often you sell, and how much you get for each sell. thanks! oh and where you are from (I’m in WA).
