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.
