Term life insurance policies offer the most affordable option for life insurance coverage when operating under budget constraints. Millions of people have opted for this choice and insurance providers have come up with a multitude of options for term life insurance to consider all customer requirements.
Renewable term insurance is automatically renewed at the end of the term without any health-checkup requirement. The premium usually increases with each renewal. Convertible term insurance allows the insurer to convert the insurance to a permanent one without any medical examination requirements. The new permanent life insurance premium will usually be higher, but will remain constant for the duration of the policy. Had the individual renewed the term life insurance policy, the premium would have increased. The convertible term insurance policies are more expensive than the other varieties. Level term insurance offers the flexibility to lock down the premium rates for the duration of the policy. However, on renewal there is a significant increase in the premiums. The death benefit also remains unchanged during the contract coverage period. A less popular option is the decreasing term insurance. In this type of policy, the death benefit decreases uniformly over the duration of the policy. The premiums also change during this timeframe.
Term insurance is ideal for individuals who need a large life insurance but are operating under budget constraints. A young couple with children is a perfect example. It is also ideal if you want to get coverage for your long term debts, such as a mortgage or a car loan. In the case of business owners, they might consider term life insurance for key individuals for the period of his/her employment with the organization. In summary, it is very important to remember that term life insurance premiums will be cheaper at younger ages and will increase on subsequent renewals.
