Stay-at-home moms are MVPs—they’re home managers and at times the lifeline of the household. What if the MVP passes away? Likely, the other parent may need to hire help to fill in for the deceased parent–especially if the other parent is used to making the money.
Help comes with a cost, that sometimes has one too many zeros. This is where life insurance comes in–it can help ease the burden of this huge and unexpected expense.
Both parents should have life insurance–when they do, you have some guarantee that help will be affordable through the transition period.
When getting life insurance you want to get the right amount of coverage–enough to cover the anticipated cost of help your children will need until they’re independent. There are life insurance calculators online to help you with this, too.
My last tip? Choose a reliable company and an insurance agent that comes from a trusted referral.
