Term life insurance provides for payments when policyholder dies or becomes disabled. Beneficiaries can use this allowance to cover any expenses.
The amount of insurance coverage depends on financial goals. For example, if your goal is to cover your mortgage debt, it will be one amount of insurance premiums, but if you want to provide your family with your salary replacement, the payments to the insurer will be different.
Reducing the term of life insurance
A declining term policy is a renewable term life insurance policy in which coverage decreases at a certain rate over the life of the policy.
Convertible term insurance
With convertible term insurance, policyholders can convert a term policy into a permanent insurance or retirement annuity.
Renewable term life insurance
This is an annually renewable policy for the duration, which indicates the cost of the policy for the year in which it has been purchased. Premiums increase annually. It is usually the cheapest term insurance policy at early stage.
Your age affects the cost of insurance premiums. Life insurance get more expensive as you get older.
It is best to fix the rate for the number of years you need life insurance for. This will help you avoid having to buy a new term life insurance policy in the future.
