Q: I am 21-years-old, studying full-time, working part-time, and I would like to know when is the “right” time to get life insurance and if I really need life insurance this young. I work in the banking services industry and I hear a lot of my customers discussing their insurance details with me and how I should get life insurance. But to be honest, I have no clue if I should get it all and if so, when should I purchase it?

A: The main reason for buying life insurance is to protect those who are financially dependent on you in the event you pass away. If you are 21 years old and have no dependents life insurance would not be a necessity.

You’re buying a home

Let’s say you buy a place with your partner. Now imagine one of you suddenly wasn’t there to help pay the mortgage. Buying a term life insurance policy with enough coverage to pay off the house could help your partner stay in the home.

You make a lot less (or a lot more) than your partner

Is there a big disparity in income between you and your partner?  If so, then insuring the difference in income means that if the higher income person dies, the lower earning person can maintain their standard of living while they rebuild their lives.
