What is Term Life Insurance?

Term Life insurance also known as Term Assurance is a type of life insurance policy that offers coverage for a specific period or a defined ‘term’ of years. In the event of the insured person passing away during this time, a death benefit will be paid out.

Term insurance is significantly more cost-effective when compared to permanent life insurance, such as whole life. Term insurance isn’t designed to provide coverage throughout your entire life but a specified time frame. 

Types of term life insurance:

Monefi offers three types of term life insurance policies – 

Decreasing Term Life Insurance:

Decreasing term means that the amount the insurer pays out will decrease over time. This is used when a debt will also reduce over time. For example a mortgage. The policy is designed to stay in line with the remaining balance owed for the same length of time as the mortgage.

Level term life insurance:

Level term life insurance provides a fixed sum insured that remains the same throughout the term of the policy. This type of policy is often used to provide financial protection for your loved ones and can be suitable for various purposes, including income replacement or covering specific expenses

Increasing Term insurance:

With increasing term life insurance, the sum insured increases gradually over the policy term. This is usually done to keep pace with inflation or to account for rising living expenses. It ensures that the policy's payout maintains its real value over time.

Note: Each type of term life insurance is suited to different financial situations and needs. Hence, before considering term life insurance, book a free consultation with Monefi’s insurance expert to get answers to all your questions. Get clarity and make your smart choice with Monefi!
