Should I cancel my life insurance policy?

Only you will know if you should cancel your life insurance policy. Normally, such a decision will be prompted by a life change you are dealing with and realigning your financial affairs.

You may want to cancel your policy if you have changed to a new policy, can find better premiums, or don’t need the level of coverage any longer.

However, remember that many annuity and life insurance policies do have a cash value attached to them, and you may want to keep your policy if cancelling means risking the loss of your assets.

You may want to compare your current policy to cheaper options or other companies. Setting up a new policy may be better than surrendering or canceling your policy completely.
