Do you have life insurance?

I need to get serious about getting life insurance for me and hubby.
I have questions because I don't know anything about it..
Where do you look for life insurance?
What things are important to look for?
Are there family/couple policies?
This sounds terrible, but have you taken out life insurance on your children?
(I only ask because my sister just passed away and we are in a bind financially, I see the wisdom and generosity of having life insurance.)
How much is reasonable to pay in?
What is a good payout?
These questions may seem insensitive but I HAVE to leave my family in a better way. My sister was somewhat estranged and passed away suddenly. No will, no funds that have appeared, just a LOT of loose ends that my poor grieving mother is having to try to tie up. I don't want that to be the case when I die. I want everything to be in order and as little stress on my family as possible.

You can look online for it or call the insurance you have with your car or renters/homeowners insurance. Ours is included in with our health insurance. We have $100,000 each.

Yes we have it through dhs work. They covered me as well, but it was very very little, like only 5000, but it would be enough to help with burial cost.

We have life insurance through our jobs and State Farm. We also have small policies on our girls. Talk with an insurance agent, they can help you decide what coverage you need.
