What is term life insurance?

Term life insurance can be an affordable solution to help protect what matters most and reduce your financial stress. With a fixed premium and a set amount of coverage, term life insurance is useful if you only need coverage for a specific time period and the benefit is payable if the insured dies within the designated term.

Why choose term life insurance?

Term life insurance is considered the most affordable life insurance option. It provides a fixed death benefit amount for a fixed premium payment, over a fixed period of time. Your premium payments are guaranteed and will remain level for the term you select. Your loved ones can use the death benefit to help, among other things:

  • Pay off a mortgage
  • Provide for your children's education
  • Protect your family's business interests
  • Provide cash for future investments

Term insurance is initially less expensive than permanent insurance and offers an affordable option to cover short-term financial obligations.
