Transcript: Term VS Whole Life Insurance
In this video, I'm going to tell you about the truth on term versus
whole life insurance. Undoubtedly, if you've Googled term versus
whole life you've probably found about 20 to 30 different results,
with different opinions from different people and you may not be sure
what's the best way to go. I'm going to give you some tips on trying
to figure out whether you should go with term life or should you go
with whole life. Here's the answer. First thing you need to do when
deciding on life insurance, is to figure out how much life insurance
coverage you need. On our website, under the footer under life
insurance tools, you can find a link to a calculator that will help
you do that. Once you know how much insurance you need, the second
step is figuring out what's the cost.
Okay. Let's do some comparisons. What's the cost for term life?
What's the cost for whole life? Once you get those quotes, you're
probably going to get some sticker shock; because whole life
insurance is a lot more money than term insurance and at that point
you might just say you know what I'm going to get term life because
it's a lot more affordable to me, and you're not going to have this
question in your mind about term vs. whole life insurance.
If you realize that you can afford whole life insurance great it
might be a good thing for you, if its not affordable to you go with
term life because the most important thing you could do is get the
right amount of coverage and get enough coverage. Most Americans
underestimate how much coverage that they really need. For example,
there is a type of insurance out there called guaranteed universal
life, which is some where in between term and whole life. It's not
temporary and it's not for a certain amount of years like term is for
10, 20, or 30 years, it's permanent life insurance, but double build
up cash value like whole life, and so the cost is lot less than whole
and that may be an appropriate decision for you.
Lastly, remember that you don't have to get term, universal, or whole
life alone you can always get a combination of some term insurance
and some permanent insurance. For 99% of Americans, you're just
going to need coverage for a certain amount of time. If you have
young kids or if you have a mortgage and you want to get coverage for
20 or 30 years, then term insurance is the way to go. If you earn a
very high income and you can afford whole life insurance you may want
to consider getting a combination; and if you know for sure that you
need permanent life time insurance I suggest that you look at
guaranteed universal life.
