What is Term Life Insurance?

A term life insurance policy covers a policyholder for a pre-defined period of time, such as 10 or 20 years (Term 10, Term 20).

It is a simple, pure insurance product without a cash accumulation or savings component.

Term insurance works in the most straight-forward way: if the policyholder dies during the term, their beneficiaries get the coverage amount.

When do you Need Term Life insurance?

Term life insurance covers a policyholder for a limited period of time (with the exception of Term 100, which is actually a form of permanent insurance). Term insurance is optimal when:

  1. You want protection for a pre-defined period of time to protect yourself and your family (e.g. paying off a mortgage).
  2. You want to make sure your kids are being taken care of until they are able to live on their own.
  3. You want to minimize your life insurance premiums (thought it is important to know that these will significantly increase when you renew your policy).
  4. You need pure life insurance coverage because you invest elsewhere and you are not interested in leveraging the value accumulation component of permanent life insurance.

How Does Term Life Insurance Compare to Other Life Insurance Products?

Here is a brief comparison of how term life insurance compares to whole life insurance and universal life insurance.

What are Term Life Insurance Rates?

Term premiums are typically lower than universal life or whole life insurance premiums. Your term life insurance premiums stay the same for the entire term of the policy (e.g. for 10 years if you purchased a Term 10 policy) but will increase once your policy expires and you get a new one.

That is different from whole life insurance premiums, which will be higher at the beginning but will stay the same over the course of your life.

    Hello,

    what are the longest terms for term life insurance? 25, 30, 35 or 40 years? I am trying to get an overview for my daughtr (24).

    Thanks,
    Helmut

      Helmut, there are term 10 – 40, with a few companies offering increments of 1 year, and a couple that offer specific plans to an age, e.g. to age 65, 70, 75, and 80, plus of course term 100 which will be the most expensive. Personally for young clients age 30 or younger I really like Manulife’s term to 65, and either $250,000 or higher coverage amount. At this young age, the premiums are affordable, e.g. a $250,000 term to 65 from Manulife for a 25 year old female is $21.03 monthly, so essentially a term 40, and $250,000 less coverage she will need in the future when rates are higher. I also like Manulife for their child rider, which is one of the best available.

      Thanks for the note Jackson. Most insurance companies use age nearest pricing meaning they price on the age you are nearest to. Are you closest to 39 also do you want a quote on a Term 10, Term 20 or Term 30 policy.
