What is Life Insurance?
Life insurance is a contract between an individual and an insurance company, where the individual pays regular premiums in return for a lump sum payment, known as a death benefit, to the designated beneficiaries upon the insured’s death.
Essentially, life insurance is a way to replace the income of the person who passes away. It ensures that the family members left behind can continue to pay for their living expenses. It’s a critical piece of estate planning, providing financial security and peace of mind.

Life Insurance: FAQs
Life insurance may not cost as much as you think! Since life insurance premiums vary, based on the insured’s desired coverage amount and term length, as well as their age, health status, and tobacco use, the only way to find out is to request an instant quote. The sooner you purchase a life insurance policy, the sooner you can lock in the lowest possible premium.
Even if you have an employer-sponsored life insurance policy, you may need more coverage. Some say it’s wise to have a life insurance policy worth ten times your annual salary. Consider purchasing an individual term life insurance policy to supplement your employer-sponsored life insurance policy.
An easy way to decide how much life insurance you need is to multiply your annual salary by 10. You could also add up all of your long-term financial obligations and then subtract all of your assets; then take out a policy for the difference.
Term life insurance provides coverage for a specific period, or term, usually between 10 to 30 years. If the insured person passes away during the term, the death benefit is paid out to the beneficiaries. However, if the insured person outlives the term, no benefits are paid.
Permanent or whole life insurance, on the other hand, provides coverage for the insured’s entire lifetime. It also includes a cash-value component, which grows over time and can be borrowed against or used to pay premiums. While whole life insurance premiums are generally much higher than term life premiums, as long as premiums are paid, the policy does not expire, providing a guaranteed death benefit to the beneficiaries.
Life insurance can help provide your family or loved ones with financial security after you pass away, as long as the policy is still active. When you pass away, your beneficiaries will receive a death benefit from the life insurance company. Typically, the death benefit is used for funeral arrangements, mortgage payments, debts, tuition, and other everyday expenses. However, it is up to the beneficiaries to decide how they will use the payout. The death benefit is usually made as a lump-sum payment and is exempt from taxation.
