Term Insurance That Fits Your Needs
Term Insurance is the simplest form of life insurance that is both affordable and temporary. It pays only if death occurs during the term of the policy, which is usually from five to forty years. If you were to die during the term, your beneficiaries (people/organizations you choose to receive your life insurance money) receive a check in the amount of coverage you chose. Term life insurance coverage amounts typically range from $50,000 to millions of dollars. Most term policies have no other benefit provisions.
There are two basic types of term life insurance policies—level term and decreasing term.
- Level term means that the death benefit stays the same throughout the duration of the policy.
- Decreasing term means that the death benefit drops, usually in one-year increments, over the course of the policy’s term.
- Affordable and temporary type of life insurance.
- Pay fixed premiums for your coverage.
- All types of death are covered.
