These example rates are not intended to represent an actual price quote from a Plano life insurance company, but simply demonstrate some common factors that affect each person’s cost of insurance. For example, age, coverage amount, term length, and general health habits might all make a difference.

Notice that these are labeled as preferred risk rates for a non-smoker. It is true that good health and good health habits can make coverage cheaper. On the other hand, you should not be wary of applying for a policy because you do not fit the perfect profile. Most people can find some type of coverage, and extra charges for minor health issues may not be expensive.

A local agent can help you shop the market for the insurer who is willing to offer you the best deal.

Basic Types of Plano Life Insurance Policies

  • Temporary life insurance: Term life insurance is very popular because it is cheaper than permanent life insurance. These policies do expire and do not have any cash value after the contract end date.
  • Permanent life insurance: Whole and universal life insurance are two common types of permanent life insurance policies. These do not expire, but provide lifetime coverage. They may develop a cash value in addition to providing a death benefit. They are also more expensive than a term life policy.

Choosing the policy that suits you properly will depend upon your current budget, coverage needs, and future goals. Some people even combine coverage with more than one type of policy or by adding an additional coverage rider (option) to a policy.

For example, you may have large current coverage needs like a mortgage or planned education expenses for children. However, you may also want lifetime coverage you can take with you into retirement.

It may make sense to purchase a smaller whole life policy now, while you can get lower rates based upon your current good health and age. Then you can add a term life rider to cover your family for decades to come.

Should You Buy Group or Individual Life Insurance?

  • Americans aged 25 to 34 with life insurance: over 50%
