With a universal life insurance policy, you can shift money between the insurance and savings components as the market and interest rates change. This control is great for people who prefer a hands-on approach to investing. For example, if your savings component has low returns, you can use it to pay the premiums instead of paying out of pocket.
Everyone’s needs are different, and the amount of life insurance you need depends in part on how many beneficiaries you have. On average, insurance professionals recommend that you carry anywhere between ten to fifteen times your income.
Additional Coverage Options to Consider
There are additional options for those looking for less coverage or those on a budget. Accidental death insurance, for example, only provides compensation if the policyholder’s death is due to an accident. This policy is typically cheaper than a whole or term life insurance policy. An accelerated death benefit provides advance cash compensation if the policyholder is diagnosed with a terminal illness. For policyholders that fall critically ill, disabled or injured, a waiver of premium rider is available, which allows the policyholder to waive premium payments on their life insurance policy. Some term life insurance policies also come with term conversion which allows you to switch a term life insurance policy to a whole or universal life insurance policy.
