The lowest premium term life plan may not be the best option for you.

When you see an ad on TV promising hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of term life insurance for a ridiculously low price, you need to keep in mind that they are only throwing a bone at you to call them. These ads only promote a 10-year term plan for those in perfect health (super preferred risk class). Obviously, the low premium quoted makes it look like a breeze to buy life insurance. There a lot of good life insurance advisers out there to serve your best interest. It is important to talk to them in detail before taking a life policy.

The premium difference is obviously huge. While there is no right or wrong life insurance plan, it is what you need and afford that dictate the kind of life insurance plan you should go for. Life insurance can work as a mortgage protection vehicle, something to protect a loan, or a estate planning tool. Term life insurance plan can hardly take care of the death tax or estate tax issue. To care of that, you must look into a guaranteed permanent life insurance option as a guaranteed financial legacy. Limited premium or single pay whole life and universal life insurance plan are very useful for those looking into covering estate tax through life insurance.

FOUR BASIC RULES OF LIFE INSURANCE
  • Premiums always remain level during the duration of a term in term life plan.
  • Universal life and whole life plans are usually custom-designed to suit your need and affordability.
  • All quotes are subject to underwriting, age and state availability.
  • Always ask for optional riders that may enhance the value of your life insurance policy.
CONCLUSION

Purchasing life insurance is a major financial decision. Let’s not a few sleek TV ads or aggressive marketing sway you. A quick comparison of premiums, and what a life insurance plan can or cannot do for you is very important. Talk about your current and future family protection needs to a professional before you buy one. In a remote work environment, always ask for a virtual meeting.
