Life Insurance Plans and Available Options
Term provides coverage for a specified term of years in exchange for a specified premium. The policy does not accumulate cash value. Term is considered “pure,” where the premium buys a death benefit with no cash value or dividends. Term is useful for those who want maximum death benefits with lower premiums.
This plan provides a level premium for the life of the policy. The primary advantages of whole life are guaranteed death benefits, guaranteed cash values and fixed premiums.
Cash values can be accessed at anytime through policy loans. Some clients will use their cash values to pay premiums in later years.
Premiums on Whole life policies are much higher than Term life policies because the premiums stay fixed as the client ages.
Universal is a plan intended to provide permanent coverage with greater payment flexibility and potential for greater growth of cash values. There are several types of universal life policies which include “interest sensitive” (also known as “traditional fixed universal life insurance”), variable universal life (VUL), and equity indexed universal plans.
Universal life plans will perform better in a higher interest rate environment and rates of return on the cash value will change on a yearly basis.
