Life Insurance options in Boca Raton, Florida
Generally your age, gender and health are the most important factors when determining the premium that you will pay. Although you can purchase a policy at any age, the younger you are the more affordable the coverage will be.
All life insurance policies are designed to pay a death benefit when someone dies. The two most common types of life insurance are Term and Permanent (Universal Life and Whole Life).
Term Insurance is the most affordable type of coverage. The term of the policy usually lasts between 10 and 30 years, and pays only if a death occurs during the policy term. Term policies can be "level term" which means the death benefit will remain the same throughout the duration of the policy, or they can be "decreasing term" which means the death benefit decreases over the course of the policy's term. When the policy term ends, you may or may not qualify for new coverage based on your health.
The advantage of permanent life insurance is you can keep the policy your entire life, and the premium will remain the same during the duration of the policy. These policies can also build cash value which may be withdrawn or borrowed.
