Life Insurance Coverage
Life insurance is an essential part of financial planning. It is designed to provide a death benefit to the policyholder’s beneficiaries in the event of death. The benefit can then be used to pay for funeral expenses, pay off remaining debt, and replace the loss of family income. Generally, there are two types of life insurance.
Term Life Insurance
The policyholder will be insured for a determined period of time, for example, 5, 10, 20, or 30 years, and the premium is fixed for that period. If the policyholder dies within this time, the death benefit will pay out. If the policyholder does not pass away within this time, no benefit will be paid, and he/she will have the option to renew their policy.
Permanent Life Insurance
The death benefit is paid out regardless of when the policyholder dies. Although generally more expensive than Term Life insurance, Permanent Life Insurance is more flexible which can be designed to accumulate tax-deferred cash and surrender value that you can borrow against.
