3. Coverage is More Affordable at a Younger Age

One of the key advantages of life insurance for millennials is affordability. As Life Happenspoints out, “Getting coverage in your 20s or 30s when you’re young and healthy is usually less expensive than when you’re older. .1” Locking in rates while you are at a younger age allows you to lock in a lower premium rate, making it affordable while you are young and healthy. As you age, your risk of death increases, and so do the premiums for life insurance.

4. Supplementing Employer Insurance

While many employers offer some form of life insurance, it is often not enough to fully protect your family. Additionally, employer-provided insurance is usually tied to your job, meaning if you leave, you lose your coverage. Having your own life insurance means you have coverage no matter where your career takes you.

5. Building Cash Value for the Future

Whole life can build cash value over time which you may be able to tap into due to an unforeseen event.
