Is Term Life Insurance for You?
Term insurance is the simplest form of life insurance. It provides temporary life insurance protection on a limited budget. Here’s how it works:
When a policyholder buys term insurance, they buy coverage for a specific period of time and pay a specific price for that coverage.
If the policyholder dies during that time, their beneficiaries receive the benefit from the policy. If they outlive the term of the policy, it is no longer in effect. The person would have to reapply to receive any further benefit.
Unlike permanent insurance, term insurance only pays. It does not accumulate a cash value. That’s one of the reasons term insurance tends to be less expensive than permanent insurance.
