At Ogletree Financial Services we deal with many clients in their early forties. Protecting your family and the life you are building together is now a priority. Getting life insurance at 44 is a smart move and you are in the right place to learn the basics and get in touch with a professional today!

Life insurance at 44 is still very affordable, but don’t wait. For obvious reasons, the cost of life insurance goes up every year you wait. If you get covered now you lock in your premiums at 44. Any health issues you may encounter in the future could also affect your chances of getting life insurance coverage economically.

We’ll show you some sample quotes in a bit, but first let’s briefly answer four common questions those seeking life insurance ask.

What is term versus permanent life insurance?
Why do I need life insurance?
How much life insurance do I need?
How much will my life insurance cost?

This article is just an introduction. As you read this you will probably have more questions. Please feel free to give a call at 1-800-712-8519, we can answer all your questions to help you decide on the life insurance coverage that will be best for you.

What is term versus permanent life insurance?
The two main types of life insurance are term and permanent. Term life insurance can best be thought of as temporary insurance. The term, or length of time your policy will be in effect, will usually match the duration a particular financial responsibility will exist. For example, if you want to insure your loved ones until your children reach adulthood, including their college education, you are probably going to interested in a 15 or 20-year policy.

The death benefit for term life insurance ends when the policy concludes, if the insured dies after the term of the policy, no benefit will be paid. Permanent life insurance, on the other hand, pays a death benefit for the life of the insured and also if critical illness occurs. And possibly more importantly, permanent life insurance has a cash accumulation component that adds a dynamic investment vehicle to your policy.

We are mostly referring to term life insurance here, but we have included links to some articles we have written about permanent life insurance, including an exciting product called indexed universal life (IUL). If you are interested in learning more about IUL policies,  give these articles a read. Or give us a call and find out what Ogletree Financial Services can do for you!

Why do I need life insurance at 44?
The main concern for many seeking life insurance is income replacement. You want to make certain that if you were to die unexpectedly, your family (and others who may rely on you financially) would not suffer a financial burden. A life insurance policy can be an assurance that your loved ones can take comfort in the standard of living you have worked hard to maintain.



Your children’s college education may also be something to think about when you are considering life insurance. The cost of higher education increases every year. You want to support your children’s aspirations. Many clients include this expense when determining their life insurance coverage.

4 key features of Indexed Universal Life for College Planning

Sometimes small business owners buy life insurance to protect their business in the event that an owner or partner were to die prematurely. Without this type of policy in place, a small business could be exposed to bankruptcy if forced into this position. A small, affordable life insurance policy could see a small business through such a dilemma.

Some forty-four year olds are considering buying a home. A mortgage or other large debt is sometimes covered with a life insurance policy. You don’t want your family to bear a large debt of tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in addition to the heartbreak of losing a cherished loved one.

Indexed Universal Life for Mortgage Protection?

How much life insurance do I need?
How much life insurance you will need to cover a mortgage or pay for your children’s college education will depend on your family’s personal financial position. Discussion with your agent will be required here.

In the case of a small business, each partner would buy a policy that pays them an amount decided upon that is sufficient to buyout the deceased’s interest in the business. This sum would then be used to purchase the other partner’s interest in the business. At a critical time, this policy guarantees a cash payment to the deceased partner’s family and vital support to the exposed business.

Let’s now look at a quick way to approximate the life insurance benefit you might need to replace the income you provide your family. The idea here is to leave your loved ones a “nest egg” that will earn in interest the yearly income they would need in your absence.

First, how much would they need? You’ll want to talk to your agent to decide on a proper figure. You don’t want to purchase more insurance than you need, but you also don’t want to underinsure and not fully protect your family’s financial future.

Let’s use $25,000 for a quick example. You must also choose a conservative interest rate you feel confident that the “nest egg” you leave your family will make. Let’s use a very safe 4%.

and the math … $25,000 / 0.04  =  $625,000

Note that this method of arriving at a benefit amount leaves the “nest egg” intact to further support your family. By now you may have a decent ballpark figure of the amount of life insurance coverage you will need. Let’s look at some sample premiums and you be just about ready to go!
