Do unmarried people need life insurance?

Life insurance is designed to provide for those you leave behind or who depend on you. It is also a way to leave a legacy for those you love. You don’t need to be married to meet any of those criteria. You also want to make sure you provide for any debt you may have and your final expenses. 

Do I need my own life insurance if I get some as a work benefit?

Work-provided life insurance should always be considered supplemental and not primary insurance. Can you guarantee that you will work for this one employer for the rest of your working career? What if you become ill and need to leave your job or the business closes? Your life insurance should be completely under your control. Always have a policy of your own. 

Should I keep my life insurance when I retire? 

That is an individual decision. Do you still have someone who is dependent on you? Have you provided enough retirement income to support them if you should happen to pass away? If you have plenty of finances and no dependents who are counting on the death benefit, then no, you probably don’t need life insurance after you retire.
