Term life insurance is life insurance protection for a specific number of years. For example, if you buy 10 year level term life insurance and you die within 3 years of buying the policy, your beneficiary would receive the life insurance proceeds, usually free of federal income tax. However, if you stopped paying on your life insurance policy (policy lapse) and your coverage was not "In Force" when you died, there would be no pay-out. Also, if you cancel your term life insurance policy, there would be no pay out. The reasons term life insurance do not pay out at the end include the following: 1. The insured cancelled the policy. 2. The insured stopped paying the insurance premiums. 3. The insured outlived the term of the term life insurance policy, so the coverage expired. 4. The insured did not renewe coverage when the policy expired. 5. The insured did not tell their beneficiaries that they owned life insurance, and so no claim was ever made to get the proceeds from the life insurance policy. I hope that helps! Best of luck to you. 6. A term policy only pays off if the insured dies within the term.

Thanks for the feedback!
Presuming the policy was "in-force" at the death of the insured: When the proper certificates (proof) of death are not provided. When an insured dies within th…e two (2) year contestabile period, and fraud is discovered with regard to criminal records, health, age or any other fact or condition which would have caused the insurance company to decline coverage. And, of course, they do not pay if the policy has lapsed beyond the usual "grace period."
What is a insurance policy that pays full face value at the end of the term if the insured is living?
Pretty much any permanetn life policy can do that but you probably mean a Whole Life plan where the cash value equals the death benefit usually at age 100. 4lifeguild
Suicide within the 1st 2 years, insured died while committing a felony, lying on the application and dying within the contestibility period, failure to file a claim.
Life Insurance will not pay out at least under the following clauses: * Fraud by applicant. * Suicide (may be paid after a time e.g. 2 years after policy issue date)… * Beneficiary is convicted of crime causing death of insured. * Non-receipt of premium (lapsed policy) unless within a grace period.
Yes, this is one option. You could write a letter to the insurance company requesting cancellation of your policy. Or, you could stop paying the premiums and the pol…icy coverage would lapse and be canceled for non-payment of premiums.
Not unless the insured dies. Then the death benefit can be used for whatever purpose the beneficiary chooses.
Answer 1: Yes, it is too good to be true. Life Insurance is as important as your house. Please see a reputable and known company. State Farm, Prudential (the real one!) or All… State. Answer 2: There is no such thing as dividend paying TERM life insurance. In her book, Bank On Yourself, Pamela Yellen discusses dividend-paying WHOLE life insurance. The cash value of these policies grows in value by a guaranteed and pre-set amount -- every single year -- in both good times AND bad. In addition, you have the potential to receive dividends, which, while not guaranteed, have been paid by some companies every year for more than 100 years. Unlike stocks, real estate, and other traditional investments, both your annual guaranteed cash value increases and any dividends you may receive are locked in, once credited to your policy. Bank On Yourself revolves around companies that are owned by policy owners, not stockholders. The dividends issued by these companies are credited to the policy owners, rather than stock holders. The growth in these policies is not only guaranteed, it's exponential. That means that the growth curve of both the cash value and the death benefit steepens every year you have the policy, simply because you stick with it. And no luck, skill, or guesswork is required to make that happen. Unlike term life insurance, which only offers a death benefit, whole life also has many "living benefits." The Bank On Yourself concept shows you how to maximize these living benefits, for achieving financial security and a predictable income in retirement, and for becoming your own source of financing, so you can reduce or eliminate the control banks and financial institutions have over you.
That would depend upon the conditions listed out in the policy. You would have to consult with your insurance agent to know.
Exactly every time that someone dies that has a policy. Term insurance is purchased for a particular situation, like to cover a mortgage, to cover education for a dependen…t, etc. This is why you purchase term insurance, the need should disappear at the same time that the term runs out. Term life insurance works like all other insurance, you die, they pay, that's all.
The nature of term insurance is that after a set number of years, the coverage ends. At that time, or ideally before, the insured may obtain another term policy with the same …or a different insurer, to last for a further period of years. Alternatively, the insured can obtain some other form of life insurance, such as whole life. New term insurance that the insured tries to obtain will likely cost more in monthly premium due to the advanced age of the proposed insured. The premium increase can be ameliorated by reducing the amount of insurance purchased. Additionally, whole life insurance is, by its nature, more expensive, because one of its attributes is a savings element ("cash value") which term insurance does not have. If there have been adverse changes in the insured's health since the issuance of the original policy, they will be considered in the underwriting process. They may result in a further increase in premium (in addition to that attributable to increased age), a disqualification for coverage, or a willingness by the insured to issue a policy with only a limited amount of benefits.
Life insurance pays a stated amount of money upon the death of the insured. Payment is made if the policy was in force at the time of death and if the death was not the result… of excluded causes. Life insurance comes in two main varieties: term and whole life (sometimes called "permanent insurance"). Term is generally less costly because it provides "pure protection" during a fixed period of time (the "term", which may be 5,10,15, 20 years). The policy remains in force as long as premiums are paid and does not accumulate "cash value". Whole life insurance also provides similar protection but does accumulate "cash value". The cash value aspect of whole life is somewhat like a savings account attached to the policy, and value accumulates slowly as premiums are paid. There are various kinds of whole life, including some that invest the cash value in mutual funds. Depending upon the performance of the savings element of the whole life policy, it can reach the point of supporting the policy such that no future premium payments have to be made. Always bear in mind that life insurance should be considered protection, and never as an investment.
Some life insurance companies will cover funeral expenses, but you need to double-check with your company policy just to make sure. The best way to be sure is to purchase fune…ral insurance. Additionally, there are some governmental organizations that will assist with burial insurance, including Social Security and the Veteran's Administration. The AARP also has some plans to help cover any funeral expenses.
You should not have to pay for a term life quote. An agent can talk to you and give you quotes for different policies, but you can also get quotes from such sources as insuran…ce company websites or clearinghouses for insurance information.
No. Term insurance does not accrue cash value, so if it is canceled or lapses for nonpayment of premium it terminates, coverage ends. Further, in order for any life insurance …to pay a death benefit, the insured must die while the policy is in force.
Term insurance is NOT permanent! As the name suggests, the policy is designed to protect for a specific term or number of years. Rates are fixed for a certain number of year…s selected at policy purchase time. Before the policy expiration, the policy owner has the option to convert the policy to a permanent coverage if insurance is still needed, or let it lapse and stop paying premiums. Some term insurance has a return of premium clause, which allows that premiums be returned and can be used to buy a paid up permanent policy, for a lower benefit amount, without any underwriting. Not all companies have the option to convert to a permanent life insurance policy. Ask for a convertible term life insurance policy when you're looking for term insurance, just in case you may still need the coverage beyond the initial term period. ANOTHER EXPLANATION: No, term life insurance is not a permanent policy. That word applies only to whole life insurance. In term insurance, premiums are fixed for a certain number of years selected at the time of application. One of the choices is usually a level premium for a fixed period of years. The thing to understand about term insurance is that premiums increase with age, unless the level premium option is selected. Even then, the premiums remain level only for a fixed period of time, for example, 20 years.
