Matching Your Policy to Your Family’s Need

A life insurance policy is considered a necessity for most people who have any sort of dependents or beneficiaries. Life insurance policies are designed to payout a “death benefit” to your dependents in the event of your death. This payout can be used any number of ways – to cover your final expenses, to provide financial security to help your loved ones with living expenses, or to pay for future expenses such as a grandchild’s college fund. Our certified agents work closely with you to determine what type of policy will deliver the payout you desire for your family with the right premium for your budget. There are two common umbrellas under which most insurance policies fall: term life and permanent.

Term Life Insurance

In exchange for your regular premium payments, term life insurance provides a death benefit payout when you die – if you die within the predetermined policy term. Most term life policies have a 10-30-year coverage term. One of the great benefits of term life insurance is that the death benefit that your dependents will receive is guaranteed if you die before the policy’s expiration date.

Another benefit of a term life policy is that your premium payments for a term life policy, when compared with permanent life insurance, are much more affordable. Because of this, most of our clients in Henderson choose this type of policy.

Permanent Life Insurance

Permanent life insurance, as its name implies, is guaranteed no matter when the insured party dies. There are no expiration dates involved in a permanent life insurance policy. Instead, the policyholder pays into this policy over time and even earn dividends through investments. There are a few variations of permanent life insurance with higher and lower levels of risk in terms of how much your dependents will receive from the death benefit.

Permanent life insurance is costlier than term life insurance. However, it carries the added benefits of potential dividend gain and certainty that your dependents will be paid regardless of when you die.
