It can help cover some of life’s biggest expenses, like a home mortgage, debt, your children’s college tuition, and it can also replace lost income. Your policy can also help cover everyday expenses—anything your beneficiaries need, really. Ultimately, it’s up to them to decide how to use the payout. Learn more about how it works.
Life insurance does cover deaths related to COVID-19, and life insurance rates are not impacted by the pandemic. You can still apply for life insurance online with Ethos. If your application is approved, you’ll be considered covered as soon as your first premium payment is made. Learn more
Employer-sponsored policies typically offer coverage that is about 1-2X your annual salary, which is a fraction of the coverage you need. Financial experts recommend having coverage that is about 10X your salary, which is why many people buy individual term policies to supplement their coverage through work. Learn more
A common and easy way to come up with a coverage estimate is to multiply your annual income by 10. Another way is to calculate your long-term financial obligations and then subtract your assets. The remainder is the gap that life insurance needs to fill. It can be difficult to know what to include in your calculations, so we created a life insurance calculator to help you determine your coverage needs.
We offer both term life insurance (ages 20-65) and guaranteed whole life insurance (ages 66-85). Our term length options range from 10 to 30 years, with coverage amounts from $50K to $2 million, depending on what you qualify for. Learn more about our policies here.
