Level Term Insurance
As the name suggests, the amount you are insured for and the premiums you pay remain level throughout the term of the policy, regardless of when you make a claim. This type of cover is designed to pay out to your family in the event that you die during the specified term.
However, it is worth bearing in mind that if you don’t die during the agreed term, you will not receive a payout, any premiums you have paid will be forfeited and you will need to purchase a new policy if you still want life cover.
Why choose a term policy?
Level term policies are a good option for people who want to ensure the financial protection of their families after they pass away. With this policy in place, you can guarantee that your loved ones will be paid a set amount of money and maintain their standard of living should the worst happen. It is also a common choice for people who are taking out an interest-only mortgage and want the reassurance of knowing that their home loans will be paid off if they die and their families won’t be left struggling.
You may also wish to take out level term life insurance if you have other debts you want paid off or if you want to ensure that your family’s ongoing living costs will be covered in the event of your death. The amount of cover you want and how long you want to be insured for will be agreed at the beginning. Of course, the longer the term and the more cover you get, the higher the premiums will be.
What other options are available?
If you want a fixed amount of cover for a specified period of time, level term insurance may be the right choice for you. However, there are other options available. For example, if you are looking to pay off a debt that will reduce over time, decreasing term life insurance may be a better option. Instead of a fixed lump sum, this policy pays out an amount that gets smaller over time, meaning your premiums will also be lower. You may also decide to take out a combination of level term and decreasing term cover to form a more comprehensive policy.
