Q: What is the difference between Term Life Insurance and Universal Life Insurance?
A: Term Life Insurance is life insurance which provides a level death benefit at a fixed annual premium for a limited period of time. This period of time can be 5 years, 10 years, 15 years or even 30 years. Universal Life Insurance combines the low-cost protection of term insurance with a savings component that is invested in a tax-deferred account. This cash value may be available for a loan to the policyholder in the future.
