Life Insurance: A Quick Overview

Where would you like to start?

How does a life insurance policy work?

In general, you pay your insurance company and in return, you get protection for the people you love if something happens to you. You can choose between term (good for a specific amount of time) or permanent life insurance (lifetime coverage).

How do I know if I need term or permanent life insurance?

It depends on your situation. An easy way to think about the difference is to compare them to the idea of renting or owning a home. Term life insurance would be "renting" and permanent life insurance would be "owning."

Not sure which option is right for you?

Term Life

Term life insurance generally costs less per month and only covers you for a set time period.
