Congratulations, you finally landed your first “grown up” job; now you’re able to enjoy the luxuries of living life as a single, young adult! Without a worry in sight, planning for your long-term future probably doesn’t feel like a huge concern at the moment, right? After all, there are brunches to be had and karaoke to be sung! And, even though you may be young, healthy, and dependent(less), there is a certain amount of planning that you should do—now—to ensure your (and your future dependent’s) future is protected.
Brace yourself; it’s time to have an adult moment (even more adult than the retirement planning lecture): life insurance should be a part of your current financial plan.
Here are a couple of reasons why, even if you are young and single, you should consider life insurance—even if at this point in your life, doing so may seem unnecessary and a bit like #GrownUpProblems.
