Millennials Get the Best Life Insurance Rates & Don't Even Know It!

Guest post
Today, we have a guest post from Danielle YB Vason of SheMakesCents. This opportunity came up courtesy of HealthIQ, a company that is focused on getting lower health insurance rates for health-conscious folks.

This post focuses on life insurance. Is it right for you? Well, frankly, it depends on your situation. If you have family members that depend on your income (in part or entirely), and/or if you have co-signers on student loans, then life insurance may be a good option for you to financially protect your family against disaster. Life insurance will only get more expensive as you get older!

However, if you do not have a family or student loan debt, then who would be the beneficiary of your life insurance policy? And why? So, as with all insurance products, your personal situation dictates whether it's a smart move or a rip-off.

Danielle's own post, with more detail on the topic, is available here.

Millennials Get the Best Rates on Life Insurance & Don’t Even Know It

When you hear the term “life insurance,” what comes to mind?  Is it your parents’ and grandparents’ generation?  Is it a sad thought like death or the process of planning a funeral?  Or, is it something that you have on your to-do list to understand when you are “older” because you are not in that headspace right now?

A truly "smart" phone plan

A truly "smart" phone plan!

I used to pay too much!

My old cell phone plan was a $35/mo. prepaid service from Virgin Mobile, which ran on the Sprint network in my area. It worked well, and I liked Virgin Mobile just fine. The service in my area was seamless, and the price of $35 per month (plus tax) was pretty good. The phone itself was well-made, and I became a fan of HTC!

But when I moved to an area that Virgin Mobile did not service, I knew I'd have to switch. And, considering that my old phone (an HTC One V that cost me $80 in 2013) was getting painfully slow, it was a good excuse to upgrade.

Great deals on great headphones!
Do you hate earbuds?

Me too! They're often uncomfortable (especially for people with unusually small or large ear canals), they tend to fall out if you're physically active, they can damage your hearing, and all but the most expensive ones make music sound terrible!
