Term Insurance

Term Insurance can often be the best choice of life insurance protection since it can meet your needs now and fit comfortably within your budget. These policies are commonly issued for specified periods, such as 5, 10, 20 and 30 years; they can easily be renewed or converted to a Universal or Whole life policy. Listed below are some of the features of term insurance.


Term Insurance provides a large amount of insurance protection for a relatively low premium. Clients who have a financial need for insurance coverage during a specific time period find term insurance particularly cost-effective. The fixed term creates a lower cost of insurance that translates into level and lower premiums when compared to permanent life insurance products.

Tax-free death benefits can bypass probate

The proceeds of a Term Insurance policy can be paid directly to the named beneficiary tax free, bypassing the estate and the delays and expenses surrounding probate.

Creditor protection

Provided certain family relationships exist between the life insured and beneficiary or that a beneficiary designation is irrevocable, Insurance policies may be protected from the claims of creditors of the policy owner, however this cannot be guaranteed.

Multiple lives covered on one policy

Almost all companies allow for more than one person to be insured on a single life policy, each with their own coverage and beneficiary designation. This allows business partners or family members to be covered on the same policy, reducing cost through a single policy fee and centralized billing.

Conversion Options

Clients have the choice of either a fully-convertible Term policy or a less expensive non-convertible plan. Convertible policies are often eligible to Universal Life or a Permanent Plan without providing evidence of insurability. Non-convertible premiums are often fractionally less; however, absolutely no conversion is available.

Optional benefits

A wide range of optional benefits is available on most Term Insurance including: Children’s insurance, accidental death and dismemberment, and waiver of premium.
