Employer-provided life insurance coverage is often the most affordable form of life insurance available. This is because the insurance is underwritten based on the group's risk, rather than yours as an individual. Your individual health will not be considered, since the underwriters use other criteria to determine risk when underwriting group life insurance. If your employer doesn't provide a life insurance benefit, find out if any of the organizations or unions you are a member of offer group life insurance to their members. Organizations like AARP, AAA, trade and talent unions often offer group life insurance to their members at a fraction of the cost of individual insurance.
*It is important to remember that your benefits may be contingent upon your membership or employment.
