  • How much life Insurance do I need?

    We will help you calculate how much money your loved ones might need if something unexpected happens to you.
  • My Situation

    $
    Your total annual compensation. Include before-tax salary, any expected bonuses, and value of employee benefits provided by employer.
    As of your most recent birthday. Must be age 20-75.
    Age at which you plan to stop working. Must be higher than current age.
  • Responsibilities

    $
    Include these balances: Mortgage; credit cards; auto, home equity or student loans; any other debts you would like paid off upon your death.
    $
    Education savings goals minus amount you have set aside for these goals.
    $
    Combined total of other expenses such as estate taxes, probated costs, legal fees, executor fees. Also consider federal, state and local taxes your estate may owe on personal property or real estate.
    $
    Include unpaid funeral expenses and foreseeable medical expenses not covered by health insurance that you may incur in your final days. Default value provided is not a suggestion; adjust to your situation for more accurate estimate.
  • Assets

    $
    Include group insurance through your employer and all coverage you have purchased on your own. Default value provided is not a suggestion; adjust to your situation for more accurate estimate.
    $
    Cash on hand plus assets easily converted to cash, such as savings, checking and money market accounts, and short term CDs. Default value provided is not a suggestion; adjust to your situation for more accurate estimate.
  • Assumption

    We have assumed that you want to protect your full earnings potential - from now until you plan to stop working. You may want to adjust this assumption, if special circumstances will lengthen (or shorten) this period. Default value provided is not a suggestion; adjust to your situation for more accurate estimate.
    %
    We have made an assumption about your tax rate based on your gross income. If this is not your tax rate, it is important that you adjust it as needed. Default value provided is not a suggestion; adjust to your situation for more accurate estimate.
    %
    If your objective is to help your survivors maintain their current standard of living after your death, use a wage growth amount that is equal to the long-term outlook on inflation. Default value provided is not a suggestion; adjust to your situation for more accurate estimate.
    %
    In general, your family will need about 85% of total family income to maintain their current standard of living. However based on your circumstances, you may want to increase or decrease this percentage. Default value provided is not a suggestion; adjust to your situation for more accurate estimate.
    %
    For our calculation, we assume policy death benefits will be invested and used to replace your income after your death. Enter the after-tax rate of return that your survivors might expect to earn on the invested life insurance proceeds. A conservative assumption is 4% to 6%. Keep in mind that the potential for higher returns comes with increased risk. It is possible to lose money when investing. Default value provided is not a suggestion; adjust to your situation for more accurate estimate.

Disclosures

TIAA-CREF Life Insurance Company's (TIAA-CREF Life's) term life insurance premiums are "tiered," with progressive discounts for coverage amounts of $250,000 (to less than $500,000), $500,000 (to less than $1,000,000) and $1,000,000 or more. If you have asked for a quote on an amount close to the next band break (for example, you requested a quote for $450,000 of coverage), you may wish to submit a second quote request (in this case for $500,000) to see if the premium for the amount is actually less than the premium for the coverage amount you originally requested.

Level Term Life insurance, policy form series TCL-LPT.1 and other life insurance policies are issued by TIAA-CREF Life, a wholly owned subsidiary of Teachers, Insurance and Annuity Association of America (TIAA). Both TIAA and TIAA-CREF Life are headquartered at 730 Third Avenue, New York, NY 10017-3206. Each is solely responsible for its own financial condition and contractual obligations.

Preferred Plus premiums are for individuals who are non-tobacco users, in optimal health, have a family history of good health, and lead a low-risk lifestyle. Individuals who are in good or above-average health may qualify for our Preferred or Select premiums. Tobacco users in good health may be eligible for our Standard premiums. Your actual premiums will be determined after you undergo the medical exam and the underwriting process has been completed and may be higher. Your premiums will depend on your age at the time your policy is issued, your gender (except for residents of Montana),health, and lifestyle.

Monthly premiums are available only with Electronic Funds Transfer. Other payment options are available including quarterly, semiannual, and annual payments with your credit card or through direct billing. For more information about these options, call us at 855 200-6525.
