What Is Whole Life Insurance?

Whole life insurance helps your family prepare for the unexpected. The guaranteed death benefit can help replace a family's loss of income, help with mortgage costs, or educational needs — or to leave a legacy for the next generation. Over time, these policies build cash value that grows tax-free. This “living benefit”1 can be accessed during your lifetime. State Farm® Life Insurance Company (not licensed in MA, NY or WI) or State Farm Life and Accident Assurance Company (licensed in NY and WI) can help.

Whole Life Policy Features

  • State Farm Whole Life insurance policies offer level premiums and life insurance protection for as long as you live, provided that premiums are paid as required to keep the policy in force.
  • Policies can be paid with a single premium, premiums payable to 100, or premiums payable up to a limited number of years.
  • While policy loans do accrue interest daily, any outstanding policy loans and interest will reduce the death benefit and cash value.
  • While not guaranteed, policy may earn dividends2 that can be paid in cash, used to reduce policy premium, accumulate as interest, or pay for additional insurance.

1 Permanent life insurance develops cash value that can be borrowed. Policy loans accrue interest and unpaid policy loans and interest will reduce the death benefit and cash value of the policy. The amount of cash value available will generally depend on the type of permanent policy purchased, the amount of coverage purchased, the length of time the policy has been in force and any outstanding policy loans. There may be tax consequences associated with policy loans. Neither State Farm nor its agents provide tax or legal advice.
2 Dividends are a return of premium and are based on the actual mortality, expense, and investment experience of the Company. Dividends are not guaranteed.
