When we talk about life insurance, people usually think of a whole life policy—your policy is active until you pass away. This has its benefits, but many people would benefit more from a term life policy. Simply put, a term life policy is active for a designated set of years, which allows it to have lower premiums and the ability to convert into a whole life or infinite banking policy. Most whole life insurance policies are calculated based on the number of working years someone has left, which can both be wrong and unsettling to think about. In contrast, a term life policy is great for someone building a family, whose needs will change over time. Before you settle on one or the other, know what your specific needs are and discuss them with an insurance company you trust. -- Want to go even deeper into the conversation?
