What is Term life insurance?

Term life insurance is a simple form of life insurance to help you financially protect your family if your surviving family needed access to cash to:

  • make the payments or pay the outstanding balance of your mortgage
  • fund your children’s tuition and other education costs
  • cover everyday expenses
  • pay for any other short-term financial obligations

The amount of your coverage is for a set period (the term). Your premiums stay the same for that term. At the end of the term, coverage may be renewed by paying a different premium. Coverage ends at a certain age.
