A $100,000 life insurance policy is probably not enough coverage for most people, but it is a fair amount of money that will go a long away in helping your family in case you, or the person being insured, dies.
It will pay for funeral expenses, help pay for college tuition, help pay down the mortgage, and maybe there will be some left over to pay outstanding bills.
A often used rule of thumb is, that you should get 5 to 10 times the amount of your annual salary in life insurance. So, for example, if you make $35,000 dollars per year, you should get a policy in the amount of $175,000 to $350,000. But, if you can only afford around 100K, get a quote below.

The prices shown above for men and women in regular health will change if you smoke, have or have had certain medical problems. It's best to ask your insurance advisor on the phone.
If you are taking medication for high blood pressure (hypertension), diabetes, or high cholesterol, you still may qualify for the regular rates above. But, you'll have to show the insurance company that any medical conditions are well under control and your health is good. A visit from a medical professional and a blood test will be needed.
If you can't find an affordable 100K policy, you could try going with a 50K death benefit. It will still cover some of the basic final expenses and some debt.
If you are an occasional cigar smoker, some companies may give you non-smoker prices, but it will be evaluated on an individual basis.
In case you cannot qualify for a regular life insurance policy, you can always try a no medical exam policy. These are more expensive, but you will qualify much easier.
