A breakdown of the pros and cons of whole life insurance… A Quick Breakdown of How Whole Life Insurance Works Higher Premium – You will notice that whole life insurance quotes tend to be higher than term life insurance and other variable types as well. The reason whole policies tend to be more expensive is that the money you pay into the policy is put into a “savings” program. The longer you pay into the policy, the larger the tax-deferred earnings are that you earn from the money saved up inside the whole life policy. These interest and dividends should be discussed with your insurance agent when you receive you whole life insurance quotes. Also, while you do have the ability to get a loan against your policy, again that is a major financial decision that should be discussed with an agent as well. Fixed Policy – Whole life insurance policies are fixed in a couple different ways. The first of which is that your payments are fixed at a certain set amount for the entire duration of the policy. Regardless of economic troubles, increases in mortality, etc… your premium always stays exactly the same. So whatever you receive in whole life insurance quotes that will be the rate you pay forever. The second aspect of the policy being fixed is that the death benefit always stays exactly the same. The death benefit is agreed upon from day one and even 50 years later it will be the same amount, so plan carefully when you are deciding on how large a death benefit to request in your whole life insurance quotes. Financial Benefits – Aside from the death benefit, whole life insurance policies allow you to earn taxdeferred earnings from the money you have invested into the policy over the years. However, it takes many years, sometimes decades, to see the full benefit of that, which means whole life insurance policies are a poor vehicle for short-term investment.
