Do I need life insurance if I already get it through work?

Group policies provided by employers typically offer an affordable and easy way to enroll in life insurance without a medical exam. However, group policies may only pay an amount equal to one or two years of salary or a similarly limited amount, which may or may not be enough to cover your family’s needs.
Additionally, when you change jobs, you may not be able to take your life insurance coverage with you. When you consider that, the older we get, the more difficult and costly it may be to obtain life insurance, having a personal policy to supplement your employer-provided policy can make sense.
