  • If you're a business owner, funds can be used buy out shares in a
    business partnership

  • Can be used to cover long-term care expenses


There are two main types of life insurance - 

Whole Life Insurance

With whole life insurance, or senior life insurance,  premiums are generally higher than a term policy of the equal face value, but these plans are guaranteed for the duration of the owner’s life.  These plans can offer easy access to funds and tax-advantaged growth of wealth. Whole life insurance sponsors will also sometimes invest a portion of your premiums so that the annual cost won’t increase as you age.

Term Life Insurance

Term life insurance is a more stripped down model.  The premiums are always lower than whole life, but there are no guarantees beyond the duration of the term, which can range from 1 to 30 years.


Elements to consider when selecting a life insurance policy are present and probable future incomes; any special circumstances affecting you, your business, or your family; and your current budget for paying premiums.  Our life insurance specialists can help you navigate the process of selecting a life insurance policy fit for your needs.
