Life insurance is not the most traditional holiday gift, but the gift of knowing that if something were to happen to you, your family would be taken care of is priceless.
According to statistics from Life Happens and LIMRA, 70% of Americans consider life insurance a necessity, yet only 59% have a policy. That means a large pool of people are leaving room for uninsured risk.
First let’s dig into the two types of policy: term life insurance and whole life insurance (also referred to as permanent or universal life insurance).
The main difference is that term life insurance lasts for a pre-set period of time, whereas whole insurance lasts your lifetime. Beyond that there can be additional differences when you drill down into the terms of your policy. These may include the cost of the premium, the cash value of the policy, and death benefits.
