How Much Life Insurance Coverage do you Need?

Many consumer consultants use a Rule of Thumb of 8 to 10 times your annual income for the amount of insurance an individual should have to protect their loved ones. If you have lots of debt, business obligations, or several children, that recommended amount can go as high as 12 to 15 times your annual income. Or, for a more precise determination, use the Needs Calculator provided below.
