Our guest today is Logan Sachon, an insurance expert at Policygenius who focuses on life insurance.

In this episode, Logan explains to me the types of life insurance, how to select a life insurance company, how to get a quote, and some thumbrules on how much coverage to buy.

After our discussion, Logan emailed me to clarify one thing she said. I asked her the chance of a healthy 35 year old man dying before he retires, and she told me less than 2%. After we spoke she looked it up and the actual chance is closer to 0.65%. Of course, your mileage may vary.
