Life Insurance Companies
Life insurance aims at providing financial protection to the surviving dependents of an insured after his/her death. Life insurance includes several insurance channels, like whole life (provides for insurance coverage of the contract holder for his/her entire life), term life (provides coverage for some sum of money during given period of time), universal life (a permanent life insurance featuring an investment savings component and low premiums), and variable universal life (VUL, a permanent life insurance policy with a built-in savings component) policies.
The policy holder typically pays a premium, either regularly or as one lump sum and designates beneficiaries who will receive the life insurance payout, called a death benefit. Beneficiaries should know about the life insurance and which company holds the policy.
Life insurance rates are based on factors relating to the policy holder’s life expectancy, such as age, gender, nicotine use, medical history, family health history, dangerous hobbies, and other risk factors.
