Term life insurance
Term life insurance policies provide life insurance coverage for a specified period, usually greater than one year. Term life insurance policies are generally suitable for 90% of life insurance needs. Term policies provide no further benefits when the term expires, and no buildup of cash value occurs. If this insurance is not renewed at the end of its term, coverage lapses and no payment would be made to the beneficiary in the event of death. The most popular term insurance is level term. With level term insurance your payment remains the same for the entire term of the policy. Typical term policies are 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30 year terms. The shorter term policies are less expensive than the longer term policies. Death benefits for level term policies usually start at either $100,000 or $250,000 and can increase to several million dollars based on the needs and the budget of the insured. Premiums for term insurance can start as low as $30 per month for $500,000 death benefit*. The cost of your specific policy are determined by several factors. These factors apply to all life insurance policies except for guaranteed issue whole life. To qualify for the lowest life insurance rates you must be in excellent health and be a non smoker.
The factors are:
- smoker vs non smoker
- overall health ( any disease history, overweight, high blood pressure or cholesterol, etc..)

Permanent whole life insurance
Permanent Insurance, unlike term insurance, permanent life (or whole life)insurance provides protection for as long as the insured lives. Permanent life policies also have a savings component, building cash value that can help families meet financial emergencies, pay for special goals, or provide income for retirement years.
There are two main types of permanent life insurance policies:
Traditional whole life and universal life (UL). The annual premium for traditional whole life policies remains constant throughout the life of the policy. In earlier years, the premium is higher than the actual cost of the insurance, but in later years it becomes substantially lower than the actual cost of protection. The excess amount of each premium in the early years is held in reserve as the policy’s cash value. This cash value grows over time from investment earnings and future premium payments, providing funds for the cost of coverage as the insured grows older. If a policyholder decides to give up the insurance protection, he or she receives the cash value upon surrendering the policy, less any outstanding policy loans. Universal life allows varying premium payment amounts subject to a certain minimum and maximum. Whole life death benefits can start as low as $10,000 and can go as high as several million dollars. Universal life policies the death benefits usually start as low as $100,000 and can increase to several million dollars as well. the cost of permanent insurance policies can be 5 times to 20 times the price of level term insurance for the same death benefit. Remember with permanent insurance you are buying a lifetime of protection, with term insurance you are buying low cost insurance for a specified amount of time. It many instances we might recommend a blend of insurance ( some permanent with some term ) to come up with an affordable solution to your specific situation.
