A Quick Comparison


Term Life Insurance

  • Provides protection for 10-, 15-, 20- or 30-year terms or a set number of years depending on your needs
  • Offers premiums and benefits that remain the same or vary depending on your policy
  • Offers lower monthly premiums to work with your budget

Whole Life Insurance

  • Provides permanent coverage for your entire life
  • Premiums stay the same throughout your lifetime 
  • You can borrow against the cash value and use the money for any needs that arise.*

Term life insurance could be right for you if you have a tight budget and affordability matters most. If your circumstances or needs change, you can convert your term insurance to permanent insurance at specified times at a whole life rate for your age at the time of conversion.

If you have a permanent need to protect your family's financial stability, whole life insurance could be your best option. Your monthly premium amounts remain the same throughout your lifetime, and policy loans can provide a future source of money.

Questions you may want to consider when determining your family's life insurance needs:
  • Do you have a financial plan to pay for your children's education?
  • Do you have a savings plan to help cover financial emergencies?
  • If your family were to lose an income, would the other family members be able to maintain their lifestyle? Would your (and/or your spouse's) survivors be able to stay in your home and pay the mortgage? If necessary, what would your family do for childcare?
  • If you or your spouse were to die suddenly, would your family be burdened by large debts?
 
What do I need to know about beneficiaries?  
  • A beneficiary is a person or organization (e.g., charity) who receives insurance benefits at the time of the insured person's death.
  • You can choose anyone to be your beneficiary and you can have more than one beneficiary.
  • In general, benefits paid to your beneficiary are not subject to federal income tax.
