Aside from the peace of mind it offers, life insurance is a tool that may help provide financial security for your loved ones in the event that something should happen to you. Most financial planners consider insurance a critical element in building a strong, diversified financial plan.

So what kind of policy is right for you? Term life or whole life? It depends on the amount of insurance you need, your budget, and your estimated length of commitment.

  • Term Life
    A term life policy offers coverage for a specific period of time. Term policies with a renewal provision may be renewed at the end of the term without additional proof of good health. Premiums are initially more affordable, though they may increase with each renewal. It’s the ideal coverage for people whose insurance needs may decrease over time, for people who are covering ‘disappearing’ costs such as vehicle loans and mortgages, or who need maximum coverage during a child’s education or rearing.
  • Whole Life
    Whole life is permanent coverage, offering cash value that increases over time. Premiums do not increase; they are locked in for life the day you sign your contract.
