Peace of Mind for You and Your Loved Ones.
Many individuals consider Life Insurance to be the cornerstone of a sound financial plan. While no one likes to think (or talk) about dying, Life Insurance can remove the financial stress your loved ones may face in the event of your passing.
Your beneficiaries will be able to use your Life Insurance policy to help pay for anything from expensive funeral costs and estate taxes to making up for lost income or funding your child’s education. It can even be used to continue payments on your mortgage to ensure that the family home stays in the family.
At Dan Yoest Insurance Agency, we know that choosing a Life Insurance plan is a big decision with many important factors to consider. Our knowledgeable Life Specialist is committed to walking you through the process and providing you with the best insurance solution to give you and your family the peace of mind you deserve.
Types of Individual Life Insurance
Dan Yoest Insurance Agency offers several different coverage options for your consideration: Term Life, Whole Life, Universal Life, and others.
Term Life – This is typically the simplest and least expensive insurance option. Term Life Insurance provides coverage at a fixed rate for a specified period of time. It’s a benefit policy that’s used primarily to cover financial responsibilities of the insured, with the benefit to be paid only if the insured were to die during the specified term. Most Term Life policies can be converted to a more permanent insurance solution such as Whole Life or Universal Life Insurance.
There are two types of Term Life Insurance:
- Annual Renewable Term is purchased for a period of one year, with the death benefit to be paid only if the insured were to die during that one-year term, along with the option to renew after the term period.
- Level Term Life guarantees a fixed premium for a given period of time, usually in terms of 10, 15, 20, or 30 years. Your premium is based on your age and coverage options, with longer terms being more expensive.
Whole Life – As the most common type of permanent insurance, a Whole Life policy guarantees a death benefit for the lifetime of the insured as well as a cash value account for savings. Your premium remains constant throughout the duration of policy while payments over and above your premium are credited to your savings, which earn a fixed rate of interest.
Universal Life – Universal Life policies are designed to be more flexible than other permanent Life Insurance. You are still guaranteed a death benefit for the duration of the policy as well as savings that accumulate cash value, but the flexibility of a Universal Life plan allows you to change certain aspects of your plan to accommodate life changes.
Depending on your options, you have the flexibility to change the overall value of the death benefit as well as the time and amount in which you pay your premium. This gives you the option to focus on building your policy’s cash value, or pay a lower premium and focus on guaranteed protection. It’s important to note that changes to your Universal Life policy can affect its guarantees and limits.
