On General Life Insurance: Term, Variable & Whole Life Insurance Explained

Everyone can benefit from having life insurance. There are many different types of life insurance to purchase and determining which will work best for you and your family can be difficult. We will discuss the different forms of general insurance (life) available to you and your loved ones.

Whole life insurance is one option. With this insurance you will pay a monthly fee for your entire life. You have the ability to pay a large sum a single time or make higher payments to finish paying in approximately five years. This insurance costs the most as if provides the most coverage. ¬†Always you’ll want to get a guaranteed acceptance life insurance policy.

A large amount of what you pay for whole life insurance goes to fees. Another negative aspect of this insurance is that you do not have a definite amount that you will be receiving from your investment because of the variability of the market. If you are young this insurance tends to be inexpensive but if you are older than sixty it can be very expensive or impossible to get coverage. Make sure to get whole life insurance explained fully before purchase.

Term life insurance is another option. This insurance has monthly payments that will stay the same during the time the person is covered. If the person who is insured passes away their beneficiary will receive the benefits. If they do not pass away they can renew their insurance. The problem with this is that the rates may be different each time you renew your insurance.

This insurance is usually the most inexpensive way when purchasing life insurance. With this insurance benefits are only received if the insured person passes away. The money is usually put toward funeral expense, debt and money for the family. To keep this insurance simple a yearly term agreement is advised.

The last insurance we are going to discuss is variable insurance. As the name implies the amount of benefits available to for the insured person varies. This is due to the investment of some of the funds paid into the insurance. This portion is available to the insured person while they are still living. The other portion is only available should the insured person pass away. There is often a cutoff point that the benefits can not fall below. This protects the benefits of the person insured it the investment does not do well.

This is an appealing insurance option because it allows you to invest a portion of the money you are spending to insure yourself. Unfortunately your investment is not always successful.

Choosing a life insurance option is an importance decision. Researching your options online is a great way to learn more about your options and can help you to find one that is right for you.
