Common Life Insurance Questions
What is Life Insurance?
You can’t predict the future, and it is a sad fact of life that anyone could die at any time. With the help of life insurance, you can assign a value to your own life. If you die, whether tomorrow or years from now, your plan can help you leave a financial legacy behind for those you care about. Life insurance acts a guarantee that they won’t face significant losses because of your death.
How Does Life Insurance Work?
When you have life insurance on yourself, your death will be the trigger that allows your policy to pay a sum of money to a family member or other designated party. With it, they can cover costs like:
Your policy will involve several terms and conditions, so it’s important to understand each of them:
Insureds: The insured is the party who has to die for the life insurance policy to pay out.
Death Benefits: This is the primary payment associated with your life insurance. When you die, your plan will pay the death benefit to the person who you want to receive the money.
Beneficiaries: You will name a beneficiary who you want to receive the death benefit. This might be a spouse, adult child, close friend, estate executor or even a charity of your choice. You can name co-beneficiaries and contingent beneficiaries to some plans.
Cash Value: Some life insurance plans offer cash value investment opportunities. A portion of your premium will be placed in an investment account managed by the insurance company. As the account accumulates value, you can draw on it as a source of income while you are alive. However, after you die, the cash value account will not pay out its remaining value.
Trusts: By linking your death benefit to a trust fund, you will direct the money into that account, which will contain rules on the use of the money.
What are the Different Types of Life Insurance?
Everyone has different goals for their life insurance, and there are many types of plans on the market that can help you meet your own policy goals. The two primary plans are:
Term Life Insurance: These plans only offer coverage for a certain number of years. For example, a 20-year term plan will only be active for 20 years. If you do not die during this term, then your plan will expire at the end. You must apply for new coverage to continue the benefits.
More specific policy options such as universal, guaranteed-issue and group life plans also exist.
Which is Better, Term Life or Whole Life Insurance?
Term life plans are often the more affordable of the two primary benefits, given that they don’t last forever and don’t offer cash value options. However, whole-life plans provide consistent benefits, and you do have the reassurance that your plan won’t expire unless you stop paying for it.
How Many Life Insurance Policies Can You Have?
You can usually buy as many life insurance policies as you want. Some people buy policies with death benefits that are designed to cover certain expenses, specifically. For example, you might have a plan that covers the value of a child’s education expenses. On the side, you might have another policy with a death benefit that can provide your spouse with several years’ worth of your income.
How Long Does It Take to Get Life Insurance?
Your life insurance application might take time, and you will likely have to undergo a medical exam to help you qualify for benefits. However, we’ll help you make this process as seamless as possible, and can ensure that your benefits take effect as soon as you're approved.
