    While you’re learning how to buy life insurance, make sure you understand the policy types. Then compare the benefits and features to decide which one is best for you.

    Finally, check the ratings and rates online. Make sure you check out an insurance company’s financial rating and make sure it’ll be around in case you aren’t. Sometimes the companies you use for auto and home insurance will also provide a discounted bundle rate.
