Life Insurance Services
Term ProductsTerm Life Insurance: The simplest form of Life coverage, term insurance is no more than a matter of premiums and a death benefit. The name fits since term insurance’s span of coverage lasts only a specified period of time; if the insured dies while the policy is in force, the death benefit will be paid to the designated beneficiary. Term Life insurance could be the right choice when you’re looking for temporary coverage to fit your current family or business needs. These policies generally provide the most coverage for your insurance dollar. What’s more, several of the policies are renewable or convertible to permanent coverage that lock in your premium cost over the life of the policy.
Level Term Features:2 Three level term to age 90 products, all having different premium structures:
- 30-year product with level premiums guaranteed for 30 years.
- 20-year product with level premiums guaranteed for 20 years.
- 10-year product with level premiums guaranteed for 10 years.

Decreasing Term Life Insurance1 Features:2 FDecreasing Term Life insurance has decreasing term coverage with premiums guaranteed to remain level as long as the policy is in force, which can help you provide protection for your family in your absence to pay for a variety of expenses such as a home mortgage or other similar types of costs. The death benefit decreases monthly, which, for example, could follow the declining loan balance of a traditional fixed home mortgage. Once the death benefit decreases to a level equal to 20 percent of the initial face amount, it remains level until expiration.
Riders2 The First-To-Die Plus Rider3 allows two people to be insured at a reduced rate. The rider does not have to be the joint mortgagee or spouse. Both the basic insured and First-To-Die Plus Rider’s remaining death benefit is convertible to a permanent policy during the first 10 policy years and before age 65. The First-To-Die Plus Rider may be separated to its own policy upon the policy owner’s request any time while the basic policy is in force or within 60 days of the death of the basic insured. A policy fee will apply to the separated policy. Also Available: Waiver of Premium4, Accidental Death Benefit5, Children’s Term Insurance Rider6, and Deposit Fund7.
