Permanent Whole Life Insurance is just as it sounds. It lasts your whole life. The plan will never expire or change.
Whole Life Insurance is usually the desired option for anyone ages 60 – 90. Whole life insurance typically insures for $5,000 – $40,000.
Let’s take a look at why over 83% of people with life insurance choose a Whole Life Insurance policy.
Life insurance is an excellent financial solution the pay the following:
1.) Medical bills
2.) Mortgage payments
3.) Funeral expenses, such as burial insurance
4.) Financial gift
5.) Misc bills/expenses
It’s important to understand the differences between Whole Life Insurance and Term Life Insurance. As you can see pictured above, Term Life lasts 10 – 30 years.
Whole life, on the other hand, lasts your entire life. It never expires and the price never changes. It accumulates cash value that you can use as a “loan” to yourself. More commonly it is used to make the payments on your behalf so you don’t have to, later.
