Joetta Hernandez is a single parent with two children and earns ​\$56,500 a year. Her​ employer's group life insurance policy would pay 2.5 times her salary. She also has ​\$75,333 saved in a​ 401(k) plan, ​\$6,278 in mutual​ funds, and a ​\$3,767 CD. She wants to purchase term life insurance for 15 years until her youngest child is​ self-supporting.

Answer #1

Answer : Calculation of Additional Insurance Needed :

Current Insurance = 2.5 * Current salary

= 2.5 * 56500

= 141250

Insurance Required = Current Income * (1 - 0.26) * PVIF@4% for 15 years

Under Earning Multiple Method There is drop of 26% for two members

PVIF@4%for 1 yar taken from Table

Therefore

Joettta Insurance Required = Current Income * (1 - 0.26) * 11.118

= 56500 * (1 - 0.26) * 11.118

= 464,843.58

Additinal Insurance Needed = 464843.58 - 141250

= \$323593.58 or 323594

Under Needs Based Approach we need Immediate needs at the time of deceased such as burial Cost Estate Fees and also Debt payoff funds needed such as loans etc.
