Why buy life insurance? To financially protect your loved ones in the event of the untimely death of the main breadwinner, which in most cases is you. Insurance was invented to cover a risk. A risk is the possibility or probability of a loss. So insurance companies insure these risk for a fee. You agree to pay the fee and the company agrees that if you have a loss from that insured risk, they will pay you a certain amount to compensate you for the fee you paid.

There are a lot of different kinds of life insurance. Term and whole life are the most common. Their names tell the whole story. Term insurance last for a term of your life ie; 1yr, 5yr,10yr, 20yr or 30yrs. It does not build a nest egg, it’s just to cover your death for that period of time. Each time you complete the term you need to go buy the insurance again. The problem with this is that as you get older insurance gets more expensive.

Whole life is just that. a policy that lasts your whole life. It does build up a nest egg because the company has charged you more than enough to pay for the insurance and saves the rest for you until you need it. You can borrow the extra money before you die if you need it and if you don’t they will add it to your benefit at your death. The premium can never change and you are always covered.
