Term Life Insurance
Provides coverage for a certain period of time—usually 10, 20 or 30 years. Term insurance pays out a death benefit only if the insured dies during the specific term insured. Term insurance does not accumulate cash value but it is inexpensive and is a great fit for a temporary need such as mortgage or family insurance.
Whole Life Insurance
This is protection for the entire life of the insured and typically offers an accumulating cash value component. Whole life insurance can be participating, where policyholders may receive dividends, or non-participating, where policyholders do not receive dividends. Whole life insurance is typically used to provide for final expenses and estate planning.
Coverage in the event of a serious illness such as a heart attack, stroke, paralysis or life-threatening cancer. This allows you to protect your family’s finances and lifestyle, even if you are unable to earn an income or are faced with expensive medical bills. Critical Illness insurance can be either a term or permanent plan.

Why use term life insurance instead of bank mortgage insurance?
There are many advantages to using term life insurance instead of a bank’s typical mortgage insurance plan to protect your home investment. Here are just some of these advantages:
- You own the term life plan. With typical mortgage insurance the lending institution owns the policy.
- If you pass away a term life plan pays out the entire face amount, while a bank’s mortgage insurance only pays out the remaining balance of the mortgage.
- If you switch lenders then you have to re-apply for coverage if you have mortgage insurance. A term life policy, however, remains in effect even when you switch lenders.
- With a term life plan you get to choose the beneficiary. With a typical bank mortgage insurance plan the bank names itself the beneficiary.
- Term life plans have guaranteed interest rates. Oftentimes mortgage insurance rates are not guaranteed.
