Life Insurance Basics
This section covers the most important information about life insurance coverage. You’ll learn what is a life insurance policy, what the main types of life coverage are, and how everything works.
Term Life Insurance 101
Term life insurance is a very simple, effective, and cheap policy that guarantees a payout if you pass away during a specific period of time. In the guide we discuss types of term insurance and how to gain access to high-quality term coverage.
Permanent Life Insurance 101
While term life insurance has become increasingly sought after in recent years, there is still something to be said about permanent insurance and the lifelong protection it ensures. This section covers important notions such as insurance cash value and policy loans, and goes through essential policies such as whole and universal life.
No-exam Life Insurance
No-exam insurance policies are valuable options for young people who are looking for speedy, simplified insurance solutions, and for older individuals whose health may not allow them to qualify for standard term or permanent coverage. We discuss the subject at length in the guide.
Understanding Life Insurance Rates
To estimate costs, insurance carriers use a rating system that takes into account health and lifestyle factors. By reading this section you’ll learn more about life insurance rating classes and discover the top 9 factors that affect premiums.
Death Benefits Explained
Unlike home and auto insurance policies, where the actual payouts are calculated after an insured event takes place, life insurance policies work the other way around: everything revolves around the death benefit.
