If life insurance buying is approached in the proper manner it can be very beneficial to yourself and your family. You need to take the time to give some thought to a subject that can be very unpleasant. I guess that is why most people don’t think about it, or at best think about it only after they have had a brush with death, or when a life insurance professional brings up the subject.
Few people who have bought insurance, or even window-shopped for quotes have escaped the debate over term versus permanent insurance. The wrong kind of life insurance can do more damage to your financial plans than just about any other financial product today. So, the first and most important decision you must make when buying life insurance is: term, permanent or a combination of both?
Main Benefits of Term Life Insurance:
- Lower Cost – More life insurance protection for your money.
- Flexiblity – Choose coverage for the timeframe you need it – from 1-30 years.
Term life policies offer death benefits only, so if you die, you win (so to speak). If you live past the length of the policy, you (or, more specifically, your family members) get no money back.
Main Benefits of Whole Life Insurance:
- Lifetime protection.
- Builds cash value inside the life insurance policy over time.
Permanent life (whole life) policies offer death benefits and a “savings account” (also called “cash value”) so that if you live, you get back at least some of, and often much more than, the amount you spent on your premium. You get this money back either by cashing in the policy or by borrowing against it.
