How much life insurance should you have? Probably more than you think. Here are some things to consider:
You really want to leave your family with enough money so they can replace what you earned solely with the interest of the life insurance proceeds. After all, if they have to spend the principal from your life insurance to live, they’ll eventually run out of money.

Of course, you may have other assets that can help make up the 2-million.
