What is the Financial strength of a Life Insurance Company?
Many people choose their insurance company simply based on the competitiveness of their life insurance quotes. While price is undeniably important, there is a host of other factors to weigh when making this vital decision. Financial Solidity is probably the most crucial factor in selecting a life insurance company. No matter how good a company's products, you need to be assured that your provider is financially secure enough to pay your claim(s). There is no guarantee for life insurance policyholders similar to that provided for bank accounts by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), so select a company that is likely to be financially sound for many years, by using ratings from independent rating agencies.

How Much Life Insurance Do I Need?
Some experts recommend buying term life insurance or whole life insurance equal to 20 times your salary before taxes. If the benefit is invested in bonds that pay five percent interest, it would produce an amount equal to your salary at death, so the survivors could live off the interest and would not have to invade the principal.
The multiple of salary approach also ignores other sources of income, such as Social Security survivors' benefits. These benefits can be substantial. For example, for a person who had been earning a $36,000 salary at death ($3000 a month), maximum Social Security survivors' monthly income benefits for a spouse and two children under age 18 could be about $2,300 per month, and this amount would increase each year to match inflation.
