Term Life Insurance

A type of life insurance with a limited coverage period. Once that period or “term” is up, it is up to the policy owner to decide whether to renew or to let the coverage end. This type of insurance policy contrasts with permanent life insurance, which is intended to provide life-long protection.

Other characteristics of term insurance include:

  • Low cost
  • No cash value
  • Usually renewable
  • Sometimes convertible to permanent life insurance
