How to save money when buying life insurance
Nowadays there are such a large variety of life insurance plans available, cost should not be an excuse as to why you do not have the proper amount of protection.
The following ways can help you save even more money on getting adequate cover.
- Use Comparison websites
Make sure you shop around and compare lots of different insurance company’s policies in one location.
- Buy Young
The younger you are when you take out insurance, the cheaper your premiums will be. You can lock in these cheaper premiums for the long term.
- Consider term insurance
Term life covers you for a specific amount of money for a specific amount of time. While it doesn’t cover the whole of your life, you could cover a significant time scale until you have sufficient assets or your reason for cover is over.
- Lose weight
If you are overweight or obese, you will end up paying a much higher premium. This is due to the adverse health conditions associated with obesity. You are statistically more likely to die younger than a person with a healthy weight.
- Quit Smoking
By smoking you are putting yourself in the high risk category for insurance companies. This will increase your insurance premiums.
If you give up smoking, 12 months later you will be considered a non smoker. This will decrease your premium payments. If you got insurance cover when you were a smoker, but haven’t smoked for 12 months, you should review your insurance policy to get cheaper insurance.
- Think about your occupation
Your job can push up the cost of your insurance. If you do a high risk job, it is self explanatory. But even if you spend a large proportion of your job driving, this can push up the prices too.
