Whole Life Insurance for Jacksonville, FL

Is whole life insurance a good way to protect your financial future?

That depends. Whole life insurance can be a useful financial instrument that can protect important assets while guaranteeing your insurability. In most cases, the amount of death benefits, maximum premiums and cash values are set when the whole life insurance is issued and cannot be altered during the life of the policy. On a positive note, you cannot be denied coverage should your personal health condition change over time. Unfortunately, whole life premiums can be more expensive and at a time in your life when you can least afford to pay more for the coverage your family needs. Generally speaking, whole life is used to protect your current assets for the next generation, so if this is something you need to consider, it is best to discuss your specifics with an experienced insurance agent or financial planner.

Lost Opportunity Cost of Purchasing Life Insurance

Since the original life insurance product only provided temporary coverage for the term of an agreement, some consumers were critical of the lost opportunity to use their money for other things. After all, term insurance only pays a claim for death benefits if the insured dies during the period when the policy is active. Once the termination date of contract is reached, the policy expires and you are left with nothing to show for contributions made to the plan. Consumer demand led insurance actuaries to develop a new product that would allow a cash reserve to build up over a lifetime. That way if the insured died, the beneficiaries would receive the death benefit and the insurance carrier would claim the existing cash value. In cases where the insured out lives the term of the contract, the accumulated cash (minus specific costs for expenses) is paid out when the insured reaches a predetermined age.
