Term life insurance is coverage that lasts for a limited period of time, anywhere from 10 to 30 years. During this term your payments and coverage are guaranteed to remain the same. Typically, a term policy will only pay out if you die during the term.
People frequently buy term life insurance to:
- Take the place of their income so their family can maintain their current standard of living.
- Cover funeral and final expenses.
- Pay off debts that disappear over time, such as mortgages, loans and credit cards.
- Assist with child care and educational expenses.
Permanent insurance offers lifetime coverage and a death benefit with cash value that grows over time. This can mean lifetime peace of mind for you and your family.
Get coverage with cash value.
- You’ll have lifetime coverage.
- Like equity in a home, your policy builds cash value over time.
- In an emergency, you can take out a loan against your cash value. It is critical to pay back the loan and accrued interest to help maintain the policy’s death benefit.
When you want to help your family.
