Some life insurance products combine death protection and savings. These products can be useful during your lifetime, not just after it. They can help you achieve your financial goals through cash value accumulation, which can help with college or retirement savings.
Unlike term insurance, whole or permanent life insurance has no specified term, subject to policy conditions. A whole or permanent life policy accumulates cash value and calls for premiums to be paid for as long as the insured lives. If the insured dies, the death benefit is payable (subject to policy terms). If the policy is surrendered before the insured dies, the cash value is payable (minus any outstanding loans).
