    I think the reason few companies offer Term 40 is it is a tough plan to price.

    I think you are better off with less coverage and more Whole Life or Term 100 insurance.

      Thanks for the note. The problem with taking less coverage is that might not fulfill the insureds needs which is the primary consideration.
