Term life insurance is best for specific expenses
If you have a specific need or time frame in mind, then term life insurance is likely your best choice. And with Progressive Advantage® (powered by Efinancial) you don’t just get affordable term life insurance. You get the most bang for your buck, as term life is the most affordable kind of life insurance we offer.
What is term life insurance and when it’s best
Term life insurance policies are available for ages 18-80, and you can choose to have your policy last from set term lengths—the most common are 10, 15, 20, 30 years and pay out $100,000+. Your payments and benefit are fixed, meaning that neither will change or fluctuate during your term length.
Specific situations: Term life insurance is perfect for specific time frames, such as paying off your 30-year mortgage, or for specific needs, such as paying your children’s college costs that will start in 15 years. Basically if your finances are in order, but you’re worrying about a few larger expenses that you can time, term life will give you the most bang for your buck. If you want a policy that lasts your entire lifetime, then permanent life insurance might be best for you.
Keep in mind that term life insurance rates are usually more affordable while you’re younger, and rates can increase as you get older. So the sooner you request a quote, the better your price may be.
