Planning ahead with life insurance

Life insurance is for anyone, not just the elderly.

In turn, if you have no debts to pay off, this can become your estate to leave behind. Applying when you are young makes you eligible for a better life insurance policy because, in theory, you are in better health than your parents- although doing a few extra sit-ups or quitting smoking might not hurt anyway....
