A young family with a new mortgage and growing children has very different needs than an older couple whose kids that are already grown.
The three basic types of coverage include the following.
Term life insurance: Provides coverage for the duration of the term, usually between 1 and 30 years. Because it is temporary and only intended to provide benefits if you die within the specified term, it is usually the cheapest choice.
Whole life Insurance: A traditional form of permanent life insurance that provides coverage and remains in force as long as you are paying the premium. It also accumulates a cash value, which means it provides both an investment vehicle and a death benefit.
Universal life insurance: A newer form of permanent life insurance that provides similar benefits to whole life, but is more flexible. For example, in some cases the premium and the death benefit can be changed while the policy is in force.
