Can you take out more than one life insurance policy for yourself?

yes you can. Some companies that sell the easy issue kind of policies may restrict the total dollar amount that you can buy. Other than that, if you are taking out regular life policies (the kind that you give blood, medical reports, etc) you should be fine.

There is no limit to the number of life insurance policies you can take out on yourself. However, life insurance is not a means of investment. You should consider the purpose of the death benefits. Once the purpose is fulfilled your money may be put to use more wisely in safe investments.
