Life Insurance Tune Up Check ListLife Insurance Tune-Up Checklist

1) Is the time period on my temporary term policy almost up?

  • What can I do to extend the coverage period?

2) Is my coverage amount sufficient for today’s goals?

  • What do I like best about my current coverage?
  • Can my current coverage be improved?

3) Will my life insurance provide my family with the sufficient income I want for them?

4) How many years of my salary will my life insurance provide my family?

1 year? 5 years? 10 years?  20 years?  Lifetime?

5) Are my original beneficiaries still the right ones to receive the money?

  • Are there now special circumstances that impact who should get the money?
  • I’m now divorced. Who is listed as beneficiary (I hope not my Ex!)

6) When I switched jobs did I lose or gain coverage in the switch?

7) What happens to my work coverage when I leave or retire?

8) My children are grown and I now have grandchildren. Should I change the beneficiary to include per stirpes?

  • What is per stirpes?
  • Why is it important?

9) With recent changes in tax laws, should I change the owner of my policies?

10) What type of life insurance is best for me now? In the future?

  • Two types— Temporary Term and Permanent For Life policies exist
  • Which do I have?
  • Which do I want?

11) My cash and CDs are earning less than 1%, should I consider transferring existing cash, CD’s, etc. into a permanent cash-accumulating policy that provides a guaranteed 4% rate of return that never goes down in value?

12) Where are my policies? Would the beneficiary know where to find my policies if I had died last month?

13) It would be really nice to have one spreadsheet listing all the details of all my policies. Can you do that for me?
