What is term life insurance?

Term life insurance provides affordable protection for a defined period of time when insurance needs are high but available funds are limited. The price you pay will never increase over the duration of your term. If you die while your policy is in effect, your beneficiaries will receive a tax-free cash benefit.

It is ideal for people who want to ensure debts like a loan or mortgage are paid off, children’s education needs are met or their income is replaced if they were no longer there to support their family.

Effective coverage for less 2

It’s less expensive than permanent life insurance, so you can afford to buy more coverage. Premium payments are locked in and won’t change during the initial 10- or 20-year term.

Protect your family

Avoid leaving your family with large financial obligations. If you die, your family will receive a tax-free cash payment.

Upgrade when you’re ready

Permanent lifelong insurance may not be in your budget today. Term insurance is a great short-term alternative that allows you to have the protection you need now with the ability to transition to permanent lifelong insurance when the time is right for you.
