What is term life insurance?

No one really wants to think about what would happen after they pass away, but for anyone with a family, this is one of the most important questions that need to be answered.  While your loved ones will never be the same after losing you, they will also be financially vulnerable.  In addition to losing your income, they may also have to contend with medical bills, legal fees, and other expenses.

In order to pay these bills, your family will probably need to rely on the funds received from a term life policy.  These policies are priced relatively cheaply and are good for a set period of time.  During that time frame, the policy would pay your survivors the value of the policy in the event of your death.

Term life policies are usually purchased in ten year increments.  For many young people, the risk of dying is fairly low, so the overall cost of these policies is much cheaper than other forms of life insurance.  That makes them an ideal choice for young families that are on a budget.

A term life policy can provide a lump sum payment to your loved ones that can cover any outstanding bills and leave additional funds to support your family until they have time to adjust to your loss.  This money can be used to pay off debt or it can be invested to provide a lifetime of income.
