Experts often suggest a simple rule: that you purchase at least 5x your annual income.    

The more personal question for you is, how many years of income would like to provide in your absence? You may also choose to consider adding coverage equal to your outstanding mortgage and other debts, and future needs such as college tuition for your kid(s).

As with all financial decisions, the amount of life insurance coverage that you purchase should be a personal one that's determined by your unique circumstance and your individual needs.
