Insurance As an Investment

Can you buy too much insurance?

Yes. The amount of insurance you should purchase depends on the value of your assets, your debt situation, the amount of income you wish to have in retirement years, and the amount of income you wish to leave your spouse upon your demise. Many insurance companies have calculators available on their websites that allow you to see how much insurance you need to purchase in order to meet your goals.
