Personal Life Insurance - Term, Universal, and Variable

Simply put, personal life insurance is an individual policy that you hold, pay for, and get to keep no matter where you go in life. There are several different types of life insurance, including term, universal, or variable. Here’s a breakdown of what each type of life insurance is and how it works: 

  • Term Life Insurance - This is the simplest form of life insurance, and it provides a temporary life insurance protection on a limited budget. That means, you buy coverage for a specific period of time, and pay a specific price for that particular coverage. 
  • Universal Life Insurance - Unlike term life insurance, universal life insurance is permanent, and provides flexible premiums and death benefits. You are able to reduce or increase your death benefit, and pay your premiums, at any time, in any amount. Having the ability to adjust the face value of your coverage without changing your policy is a main advantage of universal life insurance. 
  • Variable Life Insurance - Variable life insurance is a permanent life insurance product that has separate accounts made of stocks, funds, bonds, and more. They come with certain tax benefits and can even earn interest.
