Final Expenses:

These can include funeral expenses, unpaid hospital bills, credit card balances or other debts, probate costs, or estate taxes. When you are evaluating your needs for life insurance, you should carefully consider your final expenses.

Fully Underwritten:

Life insurance plans which require some medical screening as part of the application process are referred to as fully underwritten plans. The screening frequently includes a paramedic exam to determine height, weight and blood pressure. A blood and/or urine analysis, along with other tests may also be conducted.

Level Benefit Term Life Insurance:

There are several different types of term insurance, but with level benefit term, the benefit stays the same over the course of the term, rather than decreasing as you grow older.

We offer 5 and 20 Year Simplified Issue Term Life policies with level benefits from $5,000 to $25,000.

Premium:

The price you pay for your insurance coverage.

Rider:

An optional feature or coverage which you can add to your insurance plan (usually with an additional premium). For example, some life insurance policies offer accidental death riders which provide an additional benefit if death results from an accident.

Simplified Issue:

Simplified issue means that you don't have to complete a lengthy health questionnaire or get a physical to apply for coverage. Your answers to a few health questions will help us determine your eligibility.

Term Life Insurance:

This is straightforward insurance protection that covers you for a set period of time -- the term. Since there are no savings or investment features, it can be one of the most affordable ways to buy life insurance. That's why many experts recommend this type of plan. Some term insurance policies are renewable for one or more additional terms, even if your health has changed. Some term insurance policies can be converted to a whole life policy, even if you are not in perfect health.

Whole Life Insurance:

Whole life insurance offers coverage for a lifetime, your premiums do not increase over time, and your coverage begins to build cash value. You can borrow against this cash value by taking a policy loan. For people who want permanent protection, whole life insurance can be a good choice.
