How Whole Life Insurance Works

When you are interested in a life insurance policy, it’s a good idea to find out about different types of policies. The whole life policy is a popular type for its many advantages. If you are interested in a whole life policy, give us a call today at NY Twin Bridges Insurance Agency in Albany, NY. 

Whole Life

The reason that a whole life policy is named the way it’s named is that it is good for the rest of your life. Unlike term insurance, which is only in effect for a specific term of time, a whole life policy has no expiration date. As long as you keep paying your monthly premiums, your insurance will stay in effect. This is a helpful way to keep your premiums at the same level long term. With term insurance, there is a different price each time you renew it. With whole life, you know what you’ll be paying for life. 

Cash Value

Another big advantage of whole life is that over time it builds up a cash value. This is an amount that is a portion of the amount your premiums make when the money you pay into it is invested. This portion is an amount you can borrow against whenever you need to. This makes it extremely helpful if you get into a financial bind and need quick help to get out of it. Once you borrow the money, it is simply paid back with regular payments like any loan. If you happen to die before the loan is completely paid back, the amount still outstanding will be deducted from the policy’s death benefit. 

Time for a Whole Life Policy

If you don’t have a life insurance policy in effect, this can be dangerous for the future of your loved ones. It’s important to have a policy in place that will protect them. Give us a call at NY Twin Bridges Insurance Agency in Albany, NY to find out more.
