Life Insurance & Annuities
Understanding the differences between Life Insurance Plans
Term Life Insurance
Temporary insurance is the most common and characteristically most affordable. Coverage is only for a set period of time, ex: 10 yrs, 20 yrs or 30 yrs. Does not accumulate a cash value, but has the highest payout vs. premium in case of a sudden death. The two forms of term are: level term and decreasing term.
Whole Life Insurance
This is permanent insurance with high level premiums, death benefits, and a tax deferred cash value. Essentially there are two values to consider: the face value (aka death benefit) and the cash value that can be borrowed from. There are many different types of whole life insurance, such as Family Income Policies, Modified, Vanishing Premium, Single Premium, Graded Premium, etc.
