If you’re thinking about protecting your family and assets by putting a direct life insurance policy in place for yourself, consider covering your kids at the same time.

After all, if your child is sick or injured, you will want to be at their bedside without worrying about work, bills and other expenses that may add up during this period.

Some insurance companies won’t cover kids but just as many will. You can usually cover each of your children, as long as they are aged 2 to 17 or 18, dependent on the individual insurer.

Benefit amounts range from $500 for a fracture to $20,000 and up to $50,000 for more serious problems.
