Life Insurance Protection for Lewisburg, New Lebanon, Brookville, Eaton, Arcanum, Greenville, Vandalia, Dayton, West Alexandria, Englewood, New Madison and Richmond, IN
There are many kinds of life insurance, but they generally fall into two categories: term insurance and permanent insurance.
Term Life is designed to meet temporary needs. It provides protection for a specific period of time (the “term”) and generally pays a benefit only if you die during the term. This type of insurance often makes sense when you have a need for coverage that will disappear at a specific point in time. For instance, you may decide that you only need coverage until your children graduate from college or a particular debt is paid off, such as your mortgage.
In contrast, permanent insurance also known as Whole Life (WL), Universal Life(UL) or Indexed Universal Life Insurance (IUL) provides lifelong protection. Because it is designed to last a lifetime, permanent life insurance accumulates cash value and is designed to last your lifetime.
