Considering life insurance coverage can be tough. It means trying to understand new terms (such as whole life, term life, and nonparticipating), as well as evaluating your finances and lifestyle. Even though purchasing a life insurance policy can be a huge benefit to you and your loved ones, the process can appear overwhelming.
