  • Life insurance helps to provide for the “what ifs?” of life.
  • Life insurance proceeds can help replace income so that a family can maintain their lifestyle or pay for other expenses like education, debts It can also help to protect a business by insuring the owner.
  • While not a primary reason to buy life insurance, permanent life insurance can build some cash value – and that cash value grows on a tax-deferred basis, and may provide the policy owner potential tax-favored access to policy cash values.
  • Life insurance also provides tax-free death benefit that is generally not available in any other financial product. Life insurance is the only financial product that can produce a known quantity of money at the moment of someone’s death—exactly when it is needed most!


 Ask yourself: Will someone suffer financially if I die? If so, you may need life insurance.


  • Run a financial needs analysis to figure out immediate expenses (funeral costs, mortgage, and other debts, uncovered medical costs, taxes, estate settlement costs, etc.)
  • Then calculate ongoing expenses (food, housing, utilities, transportation, health care, clothing, insurance, etc.)
  • Finally, determine future expenses (college, retirement, etc.)
  • Combine the amounts needed for current and future financial obligations, then subtract spouse’s earnings, savings, investments, and life insurance you already own. The balance = the amount of life insurance needed.

Remember: The cost of life insurance typically increases with age, and one of the biggest mistakes is to underestimate how long you’ll need to be covered.

Generally speaking, there are 2 types of Life Insurance: Term and Permanent

The biggest difference between the 2 are cost, duration and accumulation. Please see the comparison below:


  • The two questions to ask are:
  • 1. How long will I need to be insured?
  • 2. What can I afford to spend?


Term insurance is the basis of ALL life insurance coverage. It is pure insurance, much like your auto or home insurance. You pay your premium, and if there is a claim it is paid. If there is no claim, the carrier keeps the premium.

Short-term coverage is handled through term insurance: Income replacement, college funding, pay off a mortgage, business coverage like buy/sell and key man. Today’s term durations typically run 10, 15, 20, and 30 years. After the level premium period, premiums increase substantially.

Term does give you flexibility in locking in your insurability for potential conversion opportunities.

Because of the basic coverage of term, the premiums are usually the least expensive of all Life products.

With the changing marketplace there are growing enhancements to many term policies and other riders that provide a disability waiver of premium and child riders.


When buying permanent life insurance there are generally 4 different types. Your decision will be based on the following factors: cost, risks, and accumulation.

• The original and most classic type of life insurance is Whole Life. It typically carries the strongest guarantees around death benefit and cash values. At the same time, this benefits comes at a premium and it may be the most expensive. Universal Life insurance comes in 3 different flavors: fixed, index and variable.

• Fixed or Guaranteed UL is the most similar to a term policy. It generates little or no accumulation and it can last a specific amount of time; depending on preference, up to age 120.

• Index UL offers the opportunity to grow cash value moderately based on a variety of index strategies that the policies participate in. Clients participate in the gains of the stock market, while having zero risk if the market underperforms in a given year. Because of the limits on losses, these strategies usually have a cap on the gains as well, but it certainly offers a tax deferred growth opportunity inside the insurance policy.

• Variable UL is also an accumulation type of policy, typically for clients looking for the most aggressive growth. Clients can invest in a number of subaccounts, mutual funds, fixed account, and even the same index options of the Index UL policies. Some carriers even offer death benefit guarantees at an additional cost.
