Permanent Life Insurance Information
Permanent Life Insurance
- Provides Lifelong protection - Permanent insurance is designed to last your lifetime as long as you pay your premiums. Upon your death, your beneficiaries receive a lump-sum payment known as the death benefit. It can be used to help cover expenses or ensure loved ones are able to help continue the lifestyle and reach the goals you had always hoped for them.
- Builds cash value - Unlike term life insurance, permanent life insurance can accumulate cash value over time. Keep in mind that taking out a loan or withdrawal from your cash value may affect the final benefit amount that your loved ones would receive.

Who should consider purchasing a Whole Life insurance policy?
- A Whole life policy may be best for someone who no longer needs a lot of coverage and wants the certainty of a product with a guaranteed death benefit, premiums and cash value. A whole life policy offers beneficiaries a smaller amount of money to cover expenses such as funeral expenses, which can be as much as $10,000, and other expenses you may leave behind.
