Life Insurance: All You Need To Know About Non-Working Spouse
In this episode, John continues his series on the Wealth Curve Blueprint. Continuing a mini-series on life insurance, he discusses life insurance coverage for a spouse who does not work or who works part-time.
John is the author of 5 Ways Your Wealth is Under Attack. He has lectured at various educational institutions such as John Hopkins, Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley and UNC Chapel Hill. He has consecutively received the Five StarSM Wealth Manager Award since 2011, and is the former president and chairman of the Rotary Club of Red Bank Foundation.
John’s strength lies in his ability and commitment to continually improve the level and quality of the financial planning process. His macro view approach and dedication to his clients’ growth involves an evolving strategy that strives to meet the demands, desires, and needs of his clients in a continually changing economic environment.
Don’t miss John’s key points:
- Spouses who work part time or who do not work have insurability interest, which should be maximized.
- Consider the value of the unpaid work done by a spouse who spends much of their time raising children: driving them to and from school, overseeing homework and music practice, driving them to their activities, preparing meals, keeping the household in order.
- Were your family to lose that, you lose all of that labor.
- If you try to make up some of that yourself, you lose income and income potential.
- Making sure that your non-working or part-time working spouse has the maximum amount of coverage based upon your coverage is a fundamental of good planning.
- It allows you to keep your future obligations: college, paying off debts, weddings, bar mitzvahs and bat mitzvahs, sweet sixteens, and all the other things that you want to do for your kids.
