[b]3. Cover Funeral Costs[/b]
Funerals are expensive, and they can put your family out of several thousand dollars. You can use a life insurance policy to cover these costs, so your family doesn't have to.
[b]4. Cover Estate Taxes[/b]
If you are leaving anything behind for your loved ones, then they could get stuck with estate taxes. The government calculates the tax total based on the value of the assets received.
An insurance policy can help cover these taxes, so your family isn't stuck with a hefty bill from the government.
[b]5. Debt Coverage[/b]
If you have any debt, then it doesn't disappear after you pass. Your debtors will want to collect it from somebody.
In these cases, your debt can pass over to your family. Your family can use your life insurance to pay off any debts, so you don't pass the burden onto someone else.
[b]6. Education Fund[/b]
There is more than one way to save for the education of your children or grandchildren. A regular savings account works fine, but you can also add life insurance to supplement your savings.
If your child has already taken out loans for school, then your child can pay off any debt with this payoff.
[b]7. Give to Charity[/b]
You may want to give more after you pass. In this case, you can use your life insurance policy to give to charity at the end.
Even if you don't have much to give during your life, you can use your life insurance payout to complete any [url=https://www.givology.org/~meganfyshi/blog/26009/]philanthropic goals[/url] you have and support causes you think are deserving.
