With Transamerica’s term insurance you get the flexibility to tailor your coverage directly to your needs. Let’s say you want low-cost protection for the next 30 years but you also have a mortgage with 10 years remaining. You can purchase a 30-year term policy and then add a 10-year term policy to it. This way you only pay for the additional coverage while you have the mortgage.
While anyone can purchase term insurance, it is a particularly good choice if you are young and in good general health because you can benefit from affordable rates and guarantee your future insurability. As well, if your need for protection is only temporary, then you should consider a term policy. Your advisor can help you decide if term insurance is right for you.
Term insurance offers affordable protection for a specific period of time – usually 10, 20 or 30 years depending on your need. You pay a set premium only for the number of years you require coverage and when the time is up, you can choose from several options. Plus, at any time up to the policy anniversary closest to your 71st birthday, you can convert your term policy to a permanent form of insurance should your needs change!
When the term of your policy is up, you can stop paying and cancel the coverage, convert your policy to a permanent form of insurance or allow your policy to automatically renew for another 10-, 20- or 30-year term. Each of these options comes with specific requirements. Your advisor can help you decide which option is right for you.
Should the unexpected happen and you pass away, a term insurance policy will provide a tax-free death benefit for your loved ones. The proceeds from the policy may be used to replace lost income, cover living expenses or pay off debts, such as your mortgage.
Your home may be the single largest investment you will ever have. Protecting it through mortgage insurance or term insurance is something every homeowner should consider. Today, many people are opting for term insurance instead of mortgage insurance because it offers more flexibility, more guarantees and more protection – often for a better price. Ask your advisor how term insurance can provide flexible, affordable mortgage protection.
Plus, a 30-year term policy automatically renews at year 30 into permanent protection for life, with premiums payable to age 100. Your advisor can help you decide if a 30-year term policy is right for you.
Your advisor can help you understand these options and how they can work for you.
You may want to consider a solution called layered insurance. With layered insurance you can get permanent insurance protection layered with a boost of temporary insurance for when you need it.
