What is Term Life Insurance?

What is Term Life Insurance?
Term life insurance delivers a specific amount of coverage for a defined period of time. This insurance provides a tax-free, lump-sum death benefit to the person or persons of your choosing. 

Term Insurance Example: 

Age of applicant: Under 45 years old 
Term duration: 10 years 
Death benefit: $500,000 
Monthly premium: $50 

Term Insurance Basics: 
  • Depending on a person’s age and general health a medical exam may not be required to obtain term life insurance. 
  • The premiums and benefit remain the same throughout the duration of the term.
  • Because the policy does not build a cash value, it is a very affordable type of life insurance. 
  • The coverage is often renewable after the initial period, but likely the premium will increase. 
How is the premium determined? 

There are several factors involved when determining the premium, including:
  • The amount of coverage 
  • The person’s age, sex, and health 
  • Medical and personal history, such as occupation, hobbies, family history, medications and smoking status
