What Is Permanent Life Insurance?

Permanent life insurance provides coverage for your entire life at a fixed rate. Common types of permanent life insurance include: Whole Life Insurance, Guaranteed Issue Whole Life Insurance, and Universal Life Insurance, all of which are designed to cover you until your death. With permanent life insurance, your beneficiaries are guaranteed death benefits, so you can live worry free. Like with any important purchase, you should choose life insurance coverage that fits your individual needs.

Benefits and Features of Permanent Life Insurance

In addition to life-long coverage, the cost of Permanent Life Insurance is set at level premiums (also referred to as fixed rates). Level premiums ensure the amount you pay towards your policy will remain unchanged after you secure a policy, so long as you make your premium payments on time. These payments are based on your Permanent Life Insurance quote and the type of Permanent Life Insurance you select; payments can usually be made on a monthly, semi- annual, or annual basis. Generally, how long you make payments also depends on the type of permanent life insurance you get; however, coverage lasts a lifetime, but payments stop at a pre-determined age.

Permanent life insurance may also have a cash value benefit associated with it. With cash value life insurance, a portion of your policy earns interest and could be available for you to withdraw in case of an emergency. You can learn more about cash value life insurance by clicking here.
