What Are the Key Objections to Buying life Insurance?

  • “Everyday expenses” such as energy costs, food, clothing and transportation were cited by more than half of consumers surveyed as limits on ability to save for financial goals.
  • 86% of consumers who believe they need life insurance haven’t bought it because they think it is too expensive.
  • When surveyed on financial issues, “money for a comfortable retirement” was the top pick of 67% of consumers. By contrast, concerns that life insurance coverage traditionally addresses (such as premature death, funeral expenses and leaving an inheritance) registered as a top priority for less than 40% of consumers surveyed.
  • Among households saying they are likely to buy life insurance in the next 12 months, 35% say the reason they have not yet bought more life insurance is because no one has approached them about it.
