I never really understood the whole life insurance thing- I just knew that it is a good thing to have. I still don't totally understand it.
This week Wise Bread has a good post on the different types of life insurance that explained the complex packages better for me. Another way we found to get a patient, clear explanation, not only of life insurance, but car, home and renter's insurance, as well as other financial products, was talking to our State Farm agent. I appreciated that she didn't try to push anything on us or sell us anything, just explained our current level of coverage and our options.
