Your family deserves the best, and for most families, that means a straightforward and affordable term life insurance policy.
Who is term life insurance for?
Term life insurance is for those that want financial protection for a set period, like while raising a family or paying off debt. If someone depends on you financially, a term policy might be for you.
How does term life insurance work?
Term life insurance works by providing coverage for a set amount of time – most commonly 20 years. A term plan guarantees that if you pass away while the policy is active, your loved ones get a tax-free lump sum.
What term length should I choose?
Term coverage is protection for the years you need it most. When looking at your life insurance options, you’ll generally see policies around 10, 20 or 30 years. We tend to recommend a term that covers the length of your financial obligations – like childcare, mortgage, etc. Not sure how much you need? Try our life insurance calculator.
