We want you to live a long and happy life, and we don’t want you to have to worry about figuring out the often confusing options available for life insurance.
One of the most common questions individuals have about their life insurance rates has to do with how your rates are determined. The short answer to that is this: every life insurance policy is personal and customizable – that means your rates are, too. That said, there are typically three options for your policy that you can choose from when determining your personal life insurance policy.
- Whole life insurance: This is coverage that you maintain for the entire duration of your life starting when you obtain it. This policy will typically have higher premiums but comes with the ability to build equity and has cash value. For many people, this type of policy is ideal because it can provide additional value in the long-run.
- Term life insurance: This option of coverage is designed around a specific “term” period of your life. This means that your rates are going to change after specific times expire. This type of policy will have lower premiums due to the nature of the changing rates.
- Term and whole life combined: This is coverage that has a base of lifelong coverage but can be supplemented during specific times of your life with term life coverage options. Many people choose this option.
