Do you need life insurance after your retire?

Most people look forward to retirement with a great deal of anticipation. Not having to get up and go to work every day is very appealing. The lead up to retirement can last a year or more as you tie up all the loose ends and get ready to move into this new phase of your life. If you have been counting on life insurance provided by your employer for your protection, you will have some things to think about. In Astoria, OR, Linda Dugan Insurance is your locally owned independent insurance agency. We are here to help make sure your retirement progress smoothly and you have the right insurance for your lifestyle. 

When you think about retirement, do you picture you and your spouse or partner traveling the world or wintering in a warm climate? The reality for many people is quite different. You may have children or grandchildren who live with you and whom you are providing support for. Under this retirement scenario, not much has changed from when you were raising a young family. You still have people who depend on your income. 

When you are thinking about your retirement, providing for dependents is something to consider when determining how much life insurance you need. You want to make your spouse or partner is provided for in addition to providing a legacy for others when you are gone. How much you want to leave is dependent on your ability to maintain the payments on your insurance. By the time you are at retirement age, your term policies may be at the end of their term. A whole life policy will remain at the same price. 

One thing most retirees want to have covered by life insurance is their final expenses. Depending on the type of sendoff you want it can be inexpensive or over $10.000. Another option is to prepay these expenses.
