Define Why You Need The Life Insurance
The first step to get life insurance will be to define why you need it. A few viable reasons are for protecting the following:
- Real-estate in the U.S.
- Beneficiaries in the U.S.
- Investments in the U.S.
While having a reason to have life insurance in the U.S. helps, it doesn’t guaranteed that you will be able to get it. Also your immigration status will define if you can get the coverage.
