How Permanent Life Insurance Works

While there are different types of Permanent Life Insurance the insurance process is basically the same. Our team of insurance professionals will meet with you to discuss your personal and financial goals in order to determine the exact type of Permanent Life Insurance that is needed. 

Most kinds of permanent life insurance policies tend to include a savings or investment component, in addition to the pure lifetime insurance coverage. Part of the premium is used to pay for investments, which accumulate within the policy on a tax-deferred basis and generate a cash value that can be accessed as needed by the policyholder.

The policyholder may use the cash value as savings available for retirement through partial or full withdrawals or by taking loans against the cash value by offering it as collateral to a lender. Due to the lifelong coverage and the embedded investment component, the premiums for permanent life insurance are much higher than other products.

    What are the different types of Permanent Life Insurance?

    Whole Life Insurance 

    The most popular type of Permanent Life Insurance is Whole Life Insurance which offers coverage for your entire life. As long as your premiums are paid the insurance company will pay out a tax-free death benefit to your beneficiary when you pass away. Unlike Term Life Insurance, Whole Life does not have an expiry date which means you get life-long coverage.

    Universal Life Insurance

    Universal Life Insurance  is also a popular insurance solution.  It is a type of permanent life insurance that combines lifelong coverage with flexible payment options and an investment component. Universal life insurance offers a way to maintain coverage while also building wealth for your beneficiaries. It has the added benefit of allowing you to tailor the cost of your insurance premiums and investment option

    How SafeBridge Can Help

    Have Control Over Your Policy

    With Permanent Life Insurance you are not limited to a specific period of time or “term” you keep paying and it keeps covering you in return until you die. 

    Feel Protected With the Right Coverage

    Life Insurance is very specific based on your personal and professional goals. In order to determine what type of Life Insurance you require we try to understand your entire financial picture and then provide solutions that will solve for your specific scenario. 

    Create Automatic Savings & Cash Value

    With Permanent Life Insurance it has an automatic savings component. These policies build up a cash value that grows tax-deferred. If you surrender the policy at any time the cash value (or most of it) can be returned to you.

    Why Permanent Life Insurance is Important

    Permanent Life Insurance is incredibly important as it is not only protecting your loved ones and providing financial security, but it is also a good investment. When used properly, certain types of Permanent Life INsurance can help build your personal wealth. In addition, the tax-free nature of the Permanent Life Insurance death benefits can make these policies an effective tool to plan for estate taxes and passing on wealth to future generations.

    How does Permanent Insurance Work?

    Permanent life insurance comes in various forms: whole life, universal life and variable or adjustable life insurance. It generally provides guaranteed, lifetime coverage as long as you pay the required premiums.

    What is the difference between Permanent Life Insurance and Term Life Insurance?

    The difference between a Term Life Insurance policy and Permanent Life policies is pretty simple. Permanent Life Insurance provides financial protection for an unspecified amount of time, from whenever you start the policy until the day you die. The policy will pay the death benefit to your beneficiaries at any time you pass away as long as you have been paying the policy premiums and have not canceled the policy. On the other hand, with Term Life Insurance, you are covered and benefits are paid if you pass away within a specific period of time. The usual terms tend to come in increments of ten years, although some life insurance companies allow you to pick the specific years of coverage you want. With Term Life Insurance you pay less and you get to choose the time period when you want the most protection, but it does not have a savings or investment component in the way that many Permanent Life Insurance solutions do. 

    How much Life Insurance do I need and how do I know which Life Insurance Solution is best for my situation?

    Life Insurance needs are specific to the individual, their life stage and their personal and professional goals. To ensure you are getting the best protection for you and your family it is wise to speak with one of our SafeBridge Insurance Advisors who can help you sort through all the options.

    How much Permanent Life Insurance coverage you need depends on how you plan to use it. If it’s your sole life insurance coverage, you may need a policy that covers hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not more. If you are using it as part of a ladder strategy or simply to cover end-of-life expenses, that number could reduce significantly. At SafeBridge, we often suggest that you will need 8-10 times your yearly income as your death benefit. However, for a more precise answer, take into account any debts you have, your family’s living expenses, future education needs of your children, plans for end-of-life expenses and any other allocations such as legacy giving etc.
