What Is The Right Kind of Life Insurance?
All policies are not the same. Some give coverage for your lifetime and others cover you for a
specific number of years. Some build up cash values and others do not. Some policies combine different kinds of
insurance, and others let you change from one kind of insurance to another. Some policies may offer other benefits
while you are still living. Your choice should be based on your needs and what you can afford.
There are two basic types of life insurance: term insurance and
cash value insurance. Term insurance generally has lower premiums in the early years, but does not
build up cash values that you can use in the future. You may combine cash value life insurance with term insurance
for the period of your greatest need for life insurance to replace income.
Term Life Insurance covers you for a term of one or more years. It pays a
death benefit only if you die in that term. Term insurance generally offers the largest insurance protection for
you premium dollar. It generally does not build up cash value.
You can renew most term insurance policies for one or more terms even if your health has
changed. Each time you renew the policy for a new term, premiums may be higher. Ask what the premiums will be if
you continue to renew the policy. Also ask if you will lose the right to renew the policy at some age. For a higher
premium, some companies will give you the right to keep the policy in force for a guaranteed period at the same
price each year. At the end of that time you may need to pass a physical examination to continue coverage, and
premiums may increase.
You may be able to trade many term insurance policies for a cash value policy during a
conversion period-even if you are not in good health. Premiums for the new policy will be higher than you have been
paying for the term insurance.
Cash Value Life Insurance is a type of insurance where the premiums
charged are higher at the beginning than they would be for the same amount of term insurance. The part of the
premium that is not used for the cost of insurance is invested by the company and builds up a cash value that may
be used in a variety of ways. You may borrow against a policy's cash value by taking a policy loan. If you don't
pay back the loan and the interest on it, the amount you owe will be subtracted from the benefits when you die, or
from the cash value if you stop paying premiums and take out the remaining cash value. You can also use your cash
value to keep insurance protection for a limited time or to buy reduced amount without having to pay more premiums.
You also can use the cash value to increase your income in retirement or to help pay for needs such as a child's
tuition without cancelling the policy. However, to build up this cash value, you must pay higher premiums in the
earlier years of the policy. Cash value life insurance may be one of several types; whole life universal life and
variable life are all types of cash value insurance.
Whole Life Insurance covers you for as long as you live if your
premiums are paid. You generally pay the same amount in premiums for as long as you live. When you first take out
the policy, premiums can be several times higher than you would pay initially for the same amount of term
insurance. But they are smaller than the premiums you would eventually pay if you were to keep renewing a term
policy until your later years.
Some whole life policies let you pay premiums for a shorter period such as 20 years, or until
age 65. Premiums for these policies are higher since the premium payments are made during a shorter period.
Universal Life Insurance is a kind of flexible policy that lets
you vary your premium payments. You can also adjust the face amount of your coverage. Increases may require proof
that you qualify for the new death benefit. The premiums you pay (less expense charges) go into a policy account
that earns interest. Charges are deducted from the account. If your yearly premium payment plus the interest your
account earns is less than the charges, your account value will become lower. If it keeps dropping, eventually your
coverage will end. To prevent that, you may need to start making premium payments, or increase your premium
payments, or lower your death benefits. Even if there is enough in your account to pay the premiums, continuing to
pay premiums yourself means that you build up more cash value.

The major difference between traditional universal life and indexed universal life insurance is
the way interest is credited. While account value of a traditional UL policy is credited with interest based on a
rate periodically declared by the insurer, an indexed universal life policy earns interest based in part on the
movement of a stock market index, excluding dividends.
An indexed life product has the potential for greater interest crediting than the more
traditional products. Consequently, this could mean more cash value and more retirement income.
An indexed universal life product also provides the potential for reward with a guard against
While indexed UL policies credit interest based on the upward movement of an index, these
products are not securities. When you buy an indexed universal life product, you own an insurance
contract. You are not buying shares of any stock or index.
