Life Insurance

What is permanent life insurance?

It is an insurance policy that, in exchange for regular premiums paid throughout the lifetime of the insured, pays a death benefit upon the death of the insured. Part of the money that you pay in premiums is set aside in an account to grow in cash value, which you can later access by borrowing against it, and part of the premium is used to pay the death benefit.
