A Word to the Wise

Life insurance is a great, thoughtful gift, but we suggest not making a surprise out of it. Rather, discuss it with the person you want to buy it for, explain why you want to buy it, and get the other person on board.
Also, practically speaking you'll need to inform the recipient because you'll need their health information and for them to undergo a medical exam.

How Far Will Your Gift Go?

Life insurance is a long-term commitment, meaning, you need to pay monthly premiums for a specific number of years (term) or for the rest of your life (permanent). If you're buying the gift, it's up to you to decide how long you're going to foot the bill. Will it be for the first year, the first five years, or the whole term? This is another reason why it's important to discuss your gift with the potential recipient before you buy it. If they're not able to pick up the premiums at some point, it's important to make sure that you can afford it.
