Our Life Insurance Calculator can help you get a rough idea of how much coverage you’ll need to make sure your family is okay financially when you die.

% of income needed by dependents: %Because you’ll be gone, presumably they won’t need as much as you’re currently earning. Typically, 80% of your current income is a good place to start.
Your Age: yearsThe younger you are, the more years of your income your family stands to lose when you die.
Number of years benefits are needed:If you died tomorrow, how many years of income do you want to provide for your family?
