What is term life insurance?

Term life insurance can enable your family to continue to meet financial obligations such as mortgage payments and postsecondary education in the event of your death. 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 such as 10, 20 or 30 years, and pays a benefit if you die within the designated time.


Why choose term life insurance?

Term life insurance is considered the most affordable life insurance option. It provides a fixed death benefit 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:

  • 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.
