Life Insurance

Why is a term life insurance policy favored by people?

It is favored because it is relatively inexpensive. You can buy a policy for specific period of time, for example, until your children are financially independent. And you may not incur taxes as a beneficiary of the policy. Some also buy a term life policy to supplement other insurance policies that they might hold, and to cover the value of their home mortgage upon their death.
