Lesson 1: The Best Age to Buy Life Insurance 

  • When: You are young

  • Do you have people who depend on you? Maybe you are like Jon Snow who have younger siblings in need of your protection. If that is the case, investing in life insurance is a wise decision to secure their financial future. 

Lesson 2: Protecting your Spouse with Life Insurance 

  • When: You get married
  • Why: Financial protection for your spouse especially if you are the sole provider of your household
