A life insurance policy provides financial protection for your family in the event of your death. You make a contract with the insurance company, which pays a certain amount of money to your family upon your death. Your policy may also include features that would allow you to access a portion of the death benefit if you experience a qualifying medical condition or illness
Protect the lifestyle of your children, spouse or dependents in case of death
Accumulate funds for education or retirement
Gain flexibility to fund unexpected events, like critical illness or nursing home care
Life insurance is a long-term contract with an insurance company that provides a death benefit. In return, periodic premiums are paid to the insurance company. It can also be used as a means of income by the cash value feature of some types of policies.
The life insurance policy’s death benefit can fund dependents’ needs for a long time. When buying life insurance, you need to decide how much you need, how long you need it and what you can afford to pay.
