Life insurance is there as a financial safety net if you die unexpectedly. The right policy can cover debt like credit cards, mortgage and education, and it can take care of your children, spouse and family members who may financially depend on you.
Payouts are generally tax free. Some companies offer multi-policy discounts for taking out a policy with your spouse. There are also policies that develop a cash value, which can act as a savings component. This can be very beneficial to the policy owner.
There are essentially two kinds of policies: term life insurance and permanent life insurance:
Temporary Life Insurance
(Term Life Insurance)
