People who are in the market for the right life insurance policy should follow some basic strategies, according to an insurance industry group.

The Insurance Information Institute recently offered consumers some advice on how to proceed when shopping for coverage, especially in light of how important life insurance can be for families in the event of the death of a loved one.

According to the organization, shopping around is key because of the wide range of policy prices and other factors that can come up among competing companies. Other tips include searching for premium discounts, such as those that exist for securing higher coverage amounts, as well as being wary of fractional premiums because of the higher costs these can involve over time.

The institute notes that some 68 million Americans currently lack life insurance, and part of this trend is due to a slowdown in the number of employers that include it in their benefit packages.

Another tip is to pay attention to the financial condition of a life insurance company, especially its longer term prospects, and to be alert to any potential group discounts that a given company may offer.
