Life Insurance - Defined
The insurance industry loves its jargon. And unless you're around it every day, as I am, there is a strong possibility it might leave you scratching your head. These definitions can help minimize confusion.
Many of us don't really understand the importance of life insurance - until we need it. If something happens to you or your partner, Farmers® Life Insurance can help cover the loss of that person's income. At Farmers, we want to help make you smarter about life insurance now, because the more you know, the better you can plan for the future. Farmers has a life insurance option to suit your needs and budget through many stages of life. Simply, life insurance comes in two basic types: term and permanent.
Term Life Insurance
Provides coverage for a set period of time and is usually less expensive. It provides the greatest amount of coverage for the lowest initial cost. It's a good choice for your temporary needs or if your funds are limited.
Term Life Basics
Temporary coverage for your personal or business needs
Renewable or convertible to permanent coverage
Permanent Life Insurance
Includes Whole Life and Universal Life. This is useful when you want to cover a long-term need like income for a spouse or an inheritance for children or end-of-life expenses. Permanent insurance costs more initially, but can accumulate cash value.
Whole Life Basics
Good for young adults just beginning an insurance program
Good for families needing protection while saving for the future
