What is life insurance?

August 12, 2016

 

Life insurance protects the financial security of the people you love by paying a tax-free cash benefit to your beneficiaries. The amount of coverage you choose and type of insurance you buy should be based on your circumstances and needs.

 

While you may have basic life insurance through work, the coverage may not meet your needs and typically ends when you leave your employer. The cost of individually purchased life insurance depends on your age, gender, health, medical history and lifestyle.
