What Kind of Rockford Life Insurance Should You Buy?
The most difficult decision for most people who are shopping for life insurance is which type of policy to purchase. There are two basic types of life insurance that you can choose from: term life and permanent life. Each of these types of insurance is available in a range of formats which can differ from company to company.
The insurance type that is right for you is dependent on your life-situation, your financial circumstances, and your personal preference. A Trusted Choice member agent can help you evaluate your options.
The Difference Between Term and Permanent Life Insurance
Term life insurance is a policy that provides you with coverage for a specific period of time, known as a term. Terms typically range from 5 to 30 years. If you should happen to pass away while the policy is in effect, it will provide compensation to your beneficiaries in the amount that you purchased. You can purchase coverage anywhere from one thousand to several million dollars.
Permanent life insurance, including whole life and universal life, covers you for as long as you continue to make pay your premium. It does not expire and in most cases, your rates remain stable. In addition to providing death benefits, this type of policy has a cash value savings or investment component that can be cashed it at any time.
Many people prefer term life because the premiums tend to be low and because it provides affordable coverage during the period of one’s life when it is most necessary. Those who purchase a 30 year term policy may plan for their mortgage to be paid off and their kids employed with families of their own before the term expires. Others prefer whole life because it provides a financial safety net and because they are guaranteed coverage for as long as they wish to keep their policy.

How Do You Apply for Rockford Life Insurance?
A local Trusted Choice network agent can help you apply for a life insurance policy. In most cases, insurance companies will provide you first with an estimated coverage rate but cannot give you an accurate quote until you have submitted to a medical exam and have completed a medical questionnaire. There is no cost to you to have the exam.
Some policies do not require you to either take an exam or to complete a questionnaire, but these policies frequently cost more because the provider is taking a greater risk to insure you.
