Whole Life Insurance
Whole life insurance is permanent life insurance coverage that lasts for your entire life (as long as you
continue to make payments). This is unlike term life insurance, which lasts only for a specified amount of time.
There are three main types of whole life insurance- traditional, universal and variable.
Cash Value Accumulation
Whole life insurance accumulates cash value, which is a return on a portion of your premiums that the
insurance company invests. You can borrow against the cash value of the policy, or you can cash it in. The earnings
are tax deferred unless you decide to cash it in. If you borrow against your policy, the life insurance company
will charge you interest on the amount you take.
It Costs More
Whole life insurance is much more expensive than term life insurance, and that's because the premiums are
level for life and also because you are paying for the "savings account" feature of permanent life
Why Choose Whole Life?
Many people choose whole life insurance because the premiums are guaranteed for life, with no additional
medical exams. Some like the idea of "forced savings" and the accumulation of cash value. Speak with an experienced
