Life Insurance Basics
Life insurance is a way to provide for your family’s financial needs after you have passed away. It gives your family the ability to pay off debt and to keep the same standard of living you would have provided if you were still around. Life insurance is the solution to replacing your lost income. It is the only financial tool in the world that can create an instant legacy for your family in the event of your death and in most cases the death benefit is income tax free.
Term life insurance is temporary coverage and provides protection for a specific period of time, or term. We offer 1, 10, 20, and 30 year level term policies. Term life insurance is a way to get the most amount of coverage for the lowest cost. It has a low initial premium and the cost stays level for a specified period of time. Term insurance is most often used to take care of temporary needs like replacing your lost income or paying off the mortgage. The main drawback to term insurance is that after the specified term is over the cost will increase. The good news is that all of our term products are convertible to permanent insurance and depending on your age you may not be required to complete any medical exams or answer any health questions.
Whole life provides life insurance protection for your “whole life”, as long as the policy is kept in force. Whole life policies feature lifelong protection, guaranteed premiums, guaranteed death benefit, and a cash value account. The cash value account can grow each year and grows tax deferred. The cash value can even be borrowed against to help with emergencies or when times get tough. Another valuable feature of whole life insurance is the opportunity to receive policy dividends*. Dividends can be used to increase your death benefit, increase your cash value, or even help reduce your premiums. We can proudly say that we have paid a dividend every year since the company’s inception. With whole life insurance the policy will be around when your family needs it most.
* Not all of our whole life policies pay dividends and dividends are not guaranteed.
With our strong reputation and competitive rates, Farm Bureau Insurance is one of the largest providers of universal life in the state of Tennessee. Universal life is a form of permanent insurance that can provide affordable lifelong protection along with a lot of flexibility. It offers flexible premiums and a level or increasing death benefit. Universal life was originally billed as the only policy you will ever need because as your needs change the policy provides the option to adjust your coverage. This allows the policy to be tailored to meet your specific goals. Another important feature of universal life is that it has the ability to accumulate cash value depending on how it is funded. The cash value account earns interest and the account grows on a tax deferred basis. So, whether you are concerned about maximizing the death benefit or growing your cash value on a tax deferred basis, universal life has an option for you.
