- Ask an agent or company to help you. The service and reputation of the company and the agent you select is important.
- Review the application carefully with the agent; be sure all the answers are complete and accurate before you sign.
- Don't buy life insurance unless you intend to stick with your plan.
- Your decision to protect your family may involve the purchase of a new policy or the replacement of existing coverage.
- Although replacement can be beneficial, it may be very costly in the early years of a new policy if you cancel an existing policy. Don't drop one policy and buy another without a thorough valuation of both the new policy and the one you have now.
- Read your policy carefully! Most states require an insurance company to provide a free look period that begins at the delivery of the policy.
- The agent should explain anything not clear to you.
