Buying life insurance as a young, single person is a smart move because the cost of coverage is based in large part on your attained age when you apply for coverage. By buying a policy when you’re young, you can lock in insurance at the least amount of coverage and at some of the lowest rates. Single people often buy life insurance to ensure their loved ones will have money available to pay for final expenses, including funeral costs, cremation and/or burial. Life insurance can also provide needed funds to pay off your debts, so your loved ones aren’t left to figure out how to pay for them.

If one spouse was to die prematurely without life insurance coverage, the other might find it difficult to continue the same standard of living and will be solely responsible for the couple’s joint debts.

Retired seniors generally do not need life insurance protection to replace their income and may not need it to provide funds to pay off a mortgage loan. However, there are several other reasons seniors may consider purchasing coverage.
One of the most common uses for life insurance for seniors is to provide a ready source of cash to cover the costs of dying. Final medical expenses, the cost of a funeral or memorial service, and burial or cremation can add up. Final expense insurance can mean your loved ones won’t need to worry about how to pay those expenses.
Business owners can also use life insurance to protect the business and their loved ones from the consequences of a premature death. Using life insurance to fund a buy-sell agreement can provide the funds your business partners need to buy out your share of the company. Key person life insurance is another way to provide the business with the funds it would need to hire your replacement or otherwise continue the business without interruption.
Seniors who are entering their retirement years often rely on life insurance policies to pay final expenses. Life insurance can also be used to create a powerful financial legacy for future generations or for charitable beneficiaries. Also, seniors concerned about state and/or federal estate tax obligations can use life insurance to provide liquid assets which can be used to pay those taxes, easing the strain and burden on the next generation.
While the amount of life insurance needed can change over time, parents of children who have grown and flown the nest may still need life insurance to pay off the mortgage or other debts, and to continue funding their spouse’s day-to-day life.
