California Children Life Insurance
Many people make the mistake of never even considering life insurance options on their children, however there are several good reasons to have life insurance on a child, and some of them help to set them up financially for the rest of their lives.
The last thing any parent wants to consider is the passing of a child. However, every person will die someday. It is very unlikely they will die as a child, but with a very small amount of money you can start a policy that will be available for their whole life, that they will never have to even make a payment toward. Also, sometimes children have debts that belong to them that might be undersigned by the parents, and in cases like this it is a very good idea to have term life insurance in order to pay the debt off in the case of a tragic death.
Whole Life Insurance for Children
When looking at burial insurance for a young child, whole life is often the very best option. Insurance for children is so inexpensive in general because they are so unlikely to die that a very high amount of the cost of insurance is actually being used to pay for administration of the policy, and not the coverage itself. Term life insurance often has a minimum of 15 dollars per month, and most companies do not offer full medical underwritten policies on children.
Because of this, in the case of burial insurance for a child one of the very best options is a limited pay whole life policy, such as a 10 or 20 year whole life. They get immediate first dollar coverage in the case of death, but the policy lasts for their entire life. It also gains interest, and after 20 years of payments no further payments are necessary for life.
California Term Life Insurance for Children
Term life insurance is most often used for replacement of income or paying for debts, and with children this is still the primary purpose for it. The most common need for term life insurance on a child is related to either debt owed on a car or other large purchase, or on student loan debts. In the case of a student load debt, if the parents have undersigned the note then in the case of the death of the child they can become due immediately in full, and this has caused cases where a tragic death of a child is followed by the financial ruin of the parents, forcing them into bankruptcy.
Because term life insurance coverage on a 20 year old is so inexpensive, this situation can be avoided extremely cheaply, usually less than 20 dollars per month, but people never consider the need.
