Whole life insurance is a life insurance policy which is guaranteed to remain in force for the insured's entire lifetime, provided required premiums are paid, or to the maturity date.
Under the terms of the policy, the excess of premium payments above the current cost of insurance is credited to the cash value of the policy, which is credited each month with interest
Term life Insurance is the most basic type and is designed to provide coverage for a specified period of time, usually 10 to 30 years, in exchange for a monthly premium (payment). This type of insurance is usually the most affordable option for individuals under the age of 50.
Permanent life Insurance lasts for the insured person’s entire life, as long as premiums are paid. Permanent policies combine a death benefit with a savings account. The cash value that accumulates with this type insurance can later be withdrawn or taken out as a loan against the policy.
