Deciding the best kind of life insurance policy to buy can be difficult if you don’t understand the different types that are available. Below we give a simple description of each type.
This is the least-expensive type of coverage, but only covers the applicant for a specified period of time. The applicant pays a premium for that period. If they die in that period, their beneficiary receives the full death benefit.
This is a ‘term’ insurance policy, but rather than providing coverage for a specified number of years, these products cover you to a specified age which you select.
This type of policy is a ‘term’ product. You pay a higher premium then a conventional term policy, but at the end of the term you receive back 100% of the premiums you paid.
A universal life insurance policy, costs more than a term policy but allows you to maintain coverage for as long as you live, it is considered permanent coverage for life.
