Permanent life Insurance
We have already discussed term insurance. But permanent insurance is a bit different from term insurance. It is comparatively more expensive and complicated. But the coverage of permanent insurance policy is also wider than a term insurance. It actually has a provision for life long coverage. It also gives you an opportunity to build a cash value which is generally exempted of tax deductions.There are three components of permanent insurance that make it more expensive than a general term insurance. They are the coverage period, cash value and policy charges. In fact, you can switch to the policy’s cash value anytime while you are alive.Also, you can always surrender the policy and encash the permanent insurance. But in that case, you may have to pay some surrender charges.Comparing between the term and permanent insurance may be a difficult task.
It all actually depends on for which reason you are subscribing to a life insurance policy. If you need a long-term security, you may go for the permanent insurance. Because when you pay your premiums for permanent insurance policy, a sum of that goes to your cash value. But if you want to make the best use of your sum with affordable premiums, then term insurance is your choice.
