You should go out and get life insurance when you have people who are dependent on you. A few life events to consider are getting married, getting pregnant (including your significant other getting pregnant for men), and buying a house.

If you have some of the above life goals, home, marriage or kids, and have a family history of illnesses, or are relatively healthy but have some health issues, you may want to be a bit more proactive and look into insurance on the earlier side. You may end up saving your money in the long run or ending up without the ability to obtain the appropriate coverage to insure your family.

Hope this helps,
