The importance of life insurance cannot be overstated. Life insurance coverage can offer peace of mind and security, making it a suitable protection product for virtually everyone looking to take that next step in their financial journey. Life insurance is not one-size-fits-all.

Some people may need coverage to last for only a limited term of time, say 20 years, while others may require lifetime coverage. It’s important to learn about the different options available to you.

There is a growing need for affordable term coverage to last beyond the typical 10, 20 or 30 years, due to several realities facing the American population:

Americans are living and working longer

Americans are expected to live longer on average than the estimate 20 years ago and many are working or plan to work past age 65

People have debt beyond age 65

Many Americans continue to owe a significant amount of debt and for those age 65-74 who are carrying debt, the average amount is $108,700*

Coverage in later years is costly

People over age 50 looking to buy a new term or permanent policy often face health issues which may affect eligibility or prevent them from being able to afford coverage

Limited options for longer coverage

A 40-year term policy may be two to three times more affordable than a Guaranteed Universal Life or other permanent product that’s set up to provide the same 40 years of coverage**
