When you understand the differences between those twoinsurance policy types you will certainly make a clever decision.
  3. 3. A term insurance policy covers for your debt and financial needs.

Do not let the “what if”scenario convince and frighten you. It is very well known that insurancecompanies make more money selling whole life insurance policies thanterm life insurance policies.This means they are trying hard to persuade clients into buying whole lifeinsurance and this means you should be ready to listen to them but remainfirm on your position. When you sign a term life insurance policy, youshould also consider the fact that after a while you will be able to renew itor, if this will be the case, change it completely, converting it into whateveryou consider to be necessary.Term life insurance offers limited in time protection: if you sign such apolicy you are going to be covered for a period of time.

  5. 5. to your life insurance broker or directly to the life insurer do not be afraidto ask all the questions you might have.You are entitled to know everything about the policy you are buying andthis is why you should have all your questions answered.In case you are pretty much familiar with this domain and you consider youdo not need the help of a life insurance broker, take the time to compareand evaluate the prices and the promotions that are showed to you.
