how-much-life-insurance

Once you have decided to purchase life insurance, the next question to answer is how much to purchase. Some people select coverage based on an arbitrary amount: $100,000 or $200,000.

The EULA strikes back: Know what you’re getting into

We’ve all seen them – windows that pop up before you can install a program, full of legalese.
