There are many reasons that someone might need life insurance. You might need it to pay off debts and provide for your spouse and children in the event of your death. If you own a business, your bank may require it to cover a loan for their protection, or you may need it to fund a buy-sell agreement with a business partner. Businesses often have life insurance on key employees that if they were to suddenly die, would significantly affect the business’s ability to survive.
