Term life insurance vs. permanent life insurance: Which life insurance is best for you?
Term life insurance
A relatively large amount of Term life insurance may be purchased for a low initial premium. It may be appropriate for temporary coverage for needs like:
- Home mortgage
- Outstanding debt
- Educational expenses
- Auto loan
Permanent life insurance
Permanent life insurance offers a level premium for a coverage amount you choose. It provides lifetime coverage, provided premiums are paid and the coverage remains in force, and builds cash value. Permanent policies are eligible for dividends, although dividends are not guaranteed. It's best for lifelong needs like:
- Loved one's financial needs
- Final expenses
- Estate planning
- Contributions to charity
- Business legacy
- Access to accumulated cash value
