What is term life insurance?

Term life is a type of life insurance that pays out a lump sum death benefit in the event that the insured passes away during the term that the policy covers. The lump sum payment may help loved ones (beneficiaries) pay for funeral costs, day-to-day expenses, mortgage payments and/or mortgage balance, childcare or childrens’ education. Our term life plans are available in 10, 15, 20 or 25 year terms depending on your needs and age at time of application. For applicants aged 18-45 years, you could be eligible for up to $1,000,000 in life insurance coverage.

What are the differences between term life and permanent life insurance?

There are two basic types of life insurance options: term and permanent. Term insurance is coverage set for the term of your policy. Permanent will cover you for your entire lifetime. Many opt for term life because it is affordable and typically, significantly cheaper than permanent insurance. Things to consider when trying to determine which type of insurance is right for you: length of coverage you need, cost of the premium that suits your budget, whether or not a cash value payout is important to you. Permanent insurance plans typically has a savings component that is known as a cash value.
