Life Insurance

Life insurance is a contract between an insurer and a policy holder in which the insurer guarantees payment of a death benefit to named beneficiaries upon the death of the insured person. It is a way for individuals and families to financially protect themselves in the event of the unexpected death of a loved one, who was the financial provider.

There are two main types of life insurance: term life insurance and permanent life insurance.

Term life insurance is the simplest and most affordable type of life insurance. It provides a death benefit for a specific period of time, such as 10, 20, or 30 years. If the policyholder dies during the term of the policy, the death benefit will be paid to the named beneficiaries. If the policyholder survives the term, the policy will expire and no death benefit will be paid.

Permanent life insurance, on the other hand, provides coverage for the entire life of the policyholder. The two most common types of permanent life insurance are whole life and universal life.

Whole life insurance provides a death benefit, and also includes a savings component that can accumulate cash value over time. Policyholders can borrow against this cash value or use it to pay premiums, if needed.

Universal life insurance, similarly, also provide death benefit, but allows policyholders more flexibility in terms of premium payments and death benefit amounts. Policyholders can adjust their premium payments and death benefit levels over time, and the policy accumulates cash value.

It is important for individuals to carefully consider their needs and financial situation when choosing a life insurance policy, as different types of policies will suit different needs. It is also important for individuals to review and update their coverage as needed over time. This will ensure that your beneficiaries will be financially secure in case of your unexpected death.
