There are many preconceived notions about getting life insurance: Whether it’s the cost or the process of getting a policy, it’s something that many of us delay or avoid entirely.

There’s no need to be afraid of talking about life insurance or getting a policy – with Quility, you can get covered entirely online – no scary needles or medical exams required!  

Don’t let misconceptions about getting life insurance haunt you; We’re dispelling a few spooky myths to help you get on track to finding your perfect policy.  

Myth #1: Your employer-sponsored coverage is enough

While getting life insurance through work is a great perk, what happens if you change jobs, get laid off, or your employer goes out of business? Most employers only offer life insurance coverage to the equivalent of one- or two-year’s salary – would this be enough to support your loved ones or financial dependents if you were no longer able to pay the family bills?  

A personal life insurance policy can be customized to provide the full amount of financial protection your family needs. Even more, most people can get a lower monthly premium price (and more coverage) through individual coverage instead of employer-sponsored policies. This also allows you to have full control of your policy if you want to make changes to your coverage or switch employers.  

Myth #2: Life insurance is too expensive

In a recent survey from LIMRA, half of Millennials estimated the yearly cost for a $250,000 level-term life insurance policy for a healthy 30-year-old to be $1,000 or more. In reality, this policy would only cost around $160 per year. That’s less than $14 a month! 

When you’re young and in good health, you can get the most affordable rates – and your policy provides financial protection for as long as you need.  

Myth #3: Your medical condition would disqualify you from being approved

In the past, getting life insurance meant you would have to meet with an agent, go to your doctor for a blood test and urine test and then hope to qualify for the policy you want. Now, you can get a policy entirely online without a medical exam, and many insurance companies offer plans for those with pre-existing conditions.

If you’re living with a health condition such as diabetes, there are plans for you – our licensed agents have access to more than 80 insurance companies to help you get approved for the coverage you need.

Myth #4: You’re too young to need life insurance
The reality is that buying life insurance when you’re young is the best time to get a low premium. As you get older, life insurance premiums increase–so does the likelihood of developing a health problem that will raise your premiums even more.
Myth #5: It’s too complicated to pick the best policy

Life insurance generally falls into two categories: term life insurance and permanent life insurance. With term life insurance, you are essentially “renting” your policy for 10-30 years, while permanent life insurance coverage lasts a lifetime. 

Term life insurance is the most affordable type of life insurance for most individuals – since your policy expires after 10-30 years, the insurance company can offer lower monthly/annual costs. Term life offers premiums that can be as low as $20 a month, and that rate stays fixed throughout the life of the policy.

Permanent life insurance is more expensive than a term life policy, but your coverage will not expire, so your beneficiary will receive financial support when you pass away.
