Term Life Insurance
Many times, this is the most affordable life insurance.
What is term life insurance?
Life insurance provides a payout after your death to the people you designate as beneficiaries. It’s an important safety net if anyone depends on you financially. The life insurance payout can pay debts such as a mortgage, replace your income and provide college tuition funds.
Term life insurance is the least costly insurance for most people.

Term life is sufficient for most families who need life insurance, but whole life and other forms of permanent coverage can be useful in certain situations.
Choose term life insurance if:
- You need life insurance only to replace your income over a certain period, such as the years you’re raising children or paying off your mortgage
- You want the most affordable coverage
- You think you might want permanent life insurance but can’t afford it. Most term life policies are convertible to permanent coverage. The deadline for conversion varies by policy.
