Term Life Insurance Basics:
Coverage for a “term” or period of your life.
Lower premiums for a higher coverage.
Rates can change after specific terms expire.
No equity – does not build cash value.
Whole Life Insurance Basics:
Exactly like it says – permanent, not for a specific period.
Protection carries with you your whole life, as long as premiums are paid.
Can build equity and have cash value.
Higher premiums then term life, but may be more valuable in the long run.
Term and Whole Life Insurance Combined:
Build lifelong base of whole life coverage.
Supplement specific times of your life with term insurance.
What to Choose?
When to choose term? Most people choosing term life have a strategy for long term net worth and need specific coverage for a period of their lives to protect debt, loved ones, and children. For a homeowner with children it might make sense to have a term life policy to cover the mortgage and living needs until their children are old enough to provide for themselves – in this case the term would expire around the time your children move out.
When to choose whole life? Whole life can be used in the retirement years as cash assets. It can provide equity for loans and have fixed payments that do not increase with time. Many times whole life policies will pay dividends – although not always.
With so many options many people find themselves overwhelmed when they receive life insurance quotes. Let one our life insurance professionals put together the right life insurance quote for you.
As your personal situations change (i.e., marriage, birth of a child or job promotion), so will your life insurance needs. Care should be taken to ensure this product is suitable for your long-term life insurance needs. You should weigh any associated costs before making a purchase. Life insurance has fees and charges associated with it that include costs of insurance that vary with such characteristics of the insured as gender, health and age, and has additional charges for riders that customize a policy to fit your individual needs.
