good morning. something we grapple with at all ages, should we get life insurance and what kind. we're talking about this because it is national life awareness month. >> life insurance awareness, let's be aware. jill's lesson or is here to remind us that we all do die and this does happen. i had a birthday recently. who needs life insurance and how much is enough. >> first of all i know this is not like the most fun topic but in financial planning world it is an easy problem to solve so ask yourself if your death would cause a financial hardship for your survivors and you need life insurance. or if you need to create liquidity for estate purposes you also may need to buy life
5:24 am
so let's talk about that first case because that is more people affected. you need enough coverage for survivors living expenses, to provide future retirement needs of your surviving spouse or partner, and if you want to put your kids through college for future educational expenses. as far as how much they used to be this rule of thumb. 8 to 10 times income. but we don't need a rule of thumb. we have technology. so simple to determine specific needs. use a calculator. there is a great one at life very easy.>> there are different types of insurance. which is the best and how do you decide?>> for most people term life is the most affordable option and the way it works is how it sounds. during the state term of a policy if the insured person dies the company pays the face
