1. Consider how much will be needed to meet the immediate obligations of your family upon your death?
This includes funeral expenses, final medical expenses, repayment of short-term loans (credit cards, auto loans, etc..) and the mortgage balance to name a few.
2. Consider the long-term financial needs of your family.
Additional long-term financial needs include replacing lost income to support your family until your children are grown, or need to pay for their college tuition.
We all know life isn’t forever but why fear the inevitable? Being prepared for the future by facing our mortality sensibly and with a sound financial plan will keep our memory alive and make life easier for those who depend on us.
