yes you can. Some companies that sell the easy issue kind of policies may restrict the total dollar amount that you can buy. Other than that, if you are taking out regular life policies (the kind that you give blood, medical reports, etc) you should be fine.

There is no limit to the number of life insurance policies you can take out on yourself. However, life insurance is not a means of investment. You should consider the purpose of the death benefits. Once the purpose is fulfilled your money may be put to use more wisely in safe investments.

A cash value type of life insurance policy usually provides lifetime coverage. Also, there is an investment portion to the policy that builds cash value over time. You may be able to take a loan out from the policy, or even use the cash value to buy more life insurance protection. Term life insurance provides temporary life insurance protection for a specific period of time. Usually term life policies offer coverage for 1-30 years. many term life plans are issued for a period of 10, 15, 20, or 30 years of coverage. Term life insurance does not build cash value within the policy. Term life is considered "Pure Protection" because there is no investment portion, you pay for and receive only life insurance protection. Permanent life insurance usually costs up to 2-3 times more than term life insurance. Although term life is less expensive, the rates do increase when you are older. For instance, if you buy a 10 year term life insurance policy, and you outlive the policy term, it would cost you more to buy a new 10 year policy once your first policy expires.

Look inside your life insurance policy contract. There should be a provisions section that explains what is required of you in order to cancel your life insurance policy. Usually, you must send a written request signed and dated including your name, name of the insured, the policy number and the date the cancellation should take effect. This written request should be sent to the insurance company listed on the front page of your life insurance policy. If you have any questions, you can contact your life insurance company by phone or call your life insurance agent. Finally, the failure to pay one or more premiums will result in the termination of coverage. If it is a term life insurance policy, the termination of coverage will occur quickly. If it is a whole life insurance policy that has accumulated cash value, unless you take affirmative steps to cancel it (as explained above), the premiums may be paid from the cash value until it is exhausted.

A permanent life insurance policy remains in effect for the life of the insured, with premium payments being made for the same period. Permanent insurance consists of a premium and a cash value or savings component. Like term life insurance, it pays off in the event of your death, but unlike a term life policy, it operates differently. The premiums for a permanent policy are nearly five to ten times the amount of the term life rates. A portion of these premiums go into the cash value element of the policy, and over time, these savings can grow. As the name implies, permanent life insurance is permanent - the policy is applicable for your entire life as long as you keep paying the premiums. The most common permanent life insurance policies are whole life and universal life insurance.
