Which life insurance policy is right for me?
Permanent vs. Term
The main difference between permanent and term life insurance is the duration of the coverage. If your primary reason for getting life insurance is to help cover the costs of those who rely on your income, term life insurance would likely be the right fit. However, if you want to ensure your beneficiaries receive a payout regardless of when you pass or if you would like your policy to grow in cash value, permanent life insurance might be a better fit.
