What is term life insurance?

Term life insurance is a personal life insurance policy that pays out a specified financial sum (called the payout or benefit) in the event the policy holder dies within the policies finite time frame (called the term).

In other words, you pick a certain span of time for coverage (typically a term of 10, 20 or 30 years) along with the amount of monetary coverage you want (i.e. $250,000). If you should die within that period of time, your beneficiaries would receive that money as a hedge against financial hardships resulting from your death. You may also hear term life insurance referred to as "pure life insurance," due to it's simplicity.

Common features of term life insurance plans:

  • Finite coverage timeframe (10, 20 or 30 year terms)
  • Fixed premiums throughout the term
  • Fixed payout (death benefit) throughout the term
