Term vs. Permanent Insurance

 Term insurance is a form of temporary insurance that provides a lump-sum payout upon death for a stated period of time. Since term insurance can be purchased in large amounts and for a relatively small expense, it is most suitable for income replacement and short-range goals.

 Permanent life insurance, on the other hand, is a form of lifetime coverage that may play an important role in retirement and estate planning. With permanent life insurance, most policy premiums stay the same and can provide protection for you and your loved ones throughout your lifetime, as well as build cash value that you can use in retirement. Permanent life insurance is more appropriate when insurance needs are long term or if you want to accumulate cash value. 

Understanding the Types of Permanent Insurance

Universal Life


  • Universal Life provides flexible premium, death benefit and cash value options. This flexibility is important since accumulation and death benefit needs change over time. By adding optional riders, you can customize the policy to meet your needs.

Variable Universal Life


  • Variable Universal Life offers all the flexibility of universal life protection, and also offers a variety of investment options whose values vary based on market performance. Consequently, these policies may be suitable for those willing to assume investment risk.*

Survivorship Life Insurance

  • Survivorship Life Insurance  covers two individuals on one policy, paying a death benefit upon the second death (when estate taxes are due). For married couples looking fund their estate tax liability, survivorship life insurance is possibly the most cost-effective method. It can be considerably less expensive than insuring each spouse independently. 

  • *Variable insurance guarantees are based on claims paying ability of the issuer. Withdrawals made may be subject to fees when distributed and treated as ordinary income. Outstanding policy loans at death, and withdrawals, will reduce the policy death benefits and cash values. The investment returns and principal value of the available subaccount portfolios will fluctuate so that the value of an investor's unit, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original value.   

Converting Your Term Insurance to a Permanent Policy

 Many times you can convert your current term insurance policy to a permanent policy for the same amount of coverage you currently hold. When you convert your current term policy into a permanent policy, you do not have to provide additional evidence of insurability. This can be a great benefit if you purchased your term policy when you were younger and in good health. 


By converting to a permanent policy, you may reap the benefits of locking in permanent rates at a more affordable premium due to not having to provide evidence of insurability at your older age. Also, permanent products offer a guaranteed death benefit and level premiums for the life of the policy, as well as build cash value for future needs.

*Investors should carefully consider the charges and fees associated with a new insurance policy as well as any cost that may be associated with surrendering the current policy.
