The U.S. Census has named this city as one of the fastest growing urban areas in multiple years of the past decade. It is hard to believe that this large Dallas-Plano suburb had only about 20,000 residents in 1990. If you live in McKinney and your obligations are growing quickly, it may be time to look into McKinney, TX life insurance.

Sample Premiums and Local Considerations

  • Sample monthly premium for $500,000 of 20-year term life coverage for a 50-year-old female preferred risk non-smoker: $86.98
  • Sample monthly premium for $250,000 of 20-year term life coverage for a 35-year-old female preferred risk non-smoker: $23.90
  • Sample monthly premium for $500,000 of 20-year term life coverage for a 35-year-old female preferred risk non-smoker: $35.69

These sample prices do not represent the actual prices any specific individual might pay. They demonstrate that McKinney life insurance rates can vary because of common factors like age, coverage amount, type of life insurance and even healthy lifestyle choices.

Some healthy lifestyle choices that may earn you a preferred rate include keeping your weight within normal limits, not smoking and drinking only occasionally. Certain health conditions may cause your rates to increase, yet some insurers will charge a standard rate for many well-controlled health issues in a person with healthy lifestyle choices.

Few people fit into an insurance company’s perfect customer profile, so you should shop around for a company that can offer you the best rates. Even a few dollars of monthly premium rate savings can add up to hundreds or thousands of dollars during a 20- or 30-year life insurance contract.

Summary of Life Insurance Policy Types

  • Whole life insurance: This type of insurance can provide lifetime coverage and may increase in cash value.
  • Universal life insurance: Universal life insurance, like whole life, is permanent insurance. It is different from whole life insurance because it is more adjustable and transparent. The policy owner can more easily separate the cash value from the actual cash benefit.
  • Term life insurance: This is temporary insurance, even though the policy's term could last for years or even decades. This type of policy has no cash value and only provides a death benefit. Term life is popular because it is generally much cheaper than permanent insurance.

There is no perfect type of McKinney life insurance coverage for every individual or family. This summary only highlights the basics. You can find many individual variations and policy options to add benefits to your coverage.

For example, consider the fact that term insurance is generally much cheaper than permanent life insurance but without lifetime coverage. Many young families have a lot of obligations but a small budget, so it might make sense to purchase a larger term policy while adding a smaller whole life policy for more permanent coverage.

A term policy can cover immediate needs, while a whole life policy can provide future coverage during retirement. It is even possible to pay off the permanent coverage over a few years. Thus, a young couple could look forward to enjoying a paid-off life insurance policy during retirement.

A good local agent can help you assess your current needs and come up with a sensible solution.

Who Is Buying McKinney Life Insurance?

  • Americans who do not believe they have enough life insurance: 39%
  • Number of new individual policies purchased in the U.S., 2009: 10,139
  • Americans under age 25 with life insurance: 18%
  • Americans aged 25 to 34 with life insurance: over 50%

Younger adults are less likely to purchase coverage than somewhat older adults are, even though younger people can usually qualify for lower rates. Many people buy insurance after they have taken on responsibilities like a home, family or business. Still, the younger people could take the opportunity to lock in lower rates.

Group and Individual Life Insurance

Your current job might offer group life benefits that you can sign up for at work. This could be a sensible and affordable way to get coverage, but company plans may not offer as many choices as you can find on the private market. In addition, you can be sure that your individual coverage will follow you around if you change jobs or retire.

Do you own or manage a local company? If so, you should know that you can offer group insurance benefits through a local Trusted Choice member agent.
