Young Couples Life Insurance
th May 2018 |
Wedding, joint assets and kids, if these are on the horizon for you and your partner, it might be time to look into life insurance. Settling down, whether you know exactly what that looks like or are happy to let things take their course, if you and your partner are building your future together you may want to consider life insurance as part of that plan.
Life insurance isn’t just for married couples with kids
It is accepted that most couples will take on some debt to get married, with the average cost of a wedding in 2018 sitting at a whopping €25,000, including the honeymoon. Then there are personal loans, credit cards and car finance, it all adds up!
This debt is taken on for long term benefits, to be paid off together over the years. But say the unthinkable happens and you or your partner pass away. This would leave one of you with debt that may be difficult to manage on a single income.
It could mean years of financial hardship or the need to sell assets. This is where life insurance comes in.
Life insurance for young couples
As a couple, you can have separate policies or both be covered on the one policy. Joint life insurance is available to young couples starting out. You can select your own cover cover amount which is paid as a lump sum to your loved ones should you pass away or if you were diagnosed with a terminal illness.
Life insurance can help with future costs your partner may face, this could include:
- Paying the rent
- Credit card debt
- Car Loans
- Higher education debt
How much will it cost?
The premium for your life insurance policy will be based on your age, whether you smoke and your level of cover. Your current health will also be considered, so the earlier you take out life insurance when you are young and healthy, the cheaper your premiums will be.
