Best Answer

Term life insurance does not accumulate cash value as such; whole life insurance, in one of its various forms, does.

A type of term insurance that does have the potential of returning money to the policyholder is return of premium (ROP) term insurance policy. With a ROP term policy, all premiums paid are returned to the policy owner at the end of the term selected (e.g. 15, 20, or 30 years). Cash value does not build in the customary sense, but depending upon the precise variety of the policy, something more than the actual premiums paid may be repaid.

Does term insurance have cash value?

Term insurance may or may not have cash value at some point. It has no value when it expires. For example, If a person bought term insurance at 30 which would expire at 70, it could have some cash value when that person was between the ages of 40 and 60. Term life starts losing cash value when people start dying. It becomes worthless when it expires. If you want to use your term life insurance policy, you will need to die before it expires.


What are the examples of cash value insurance?

Cash value insurance can be "whole life insurance" or "universal life insurance". There are few differences on how the funds are invested and if dividends can be paid that would increase the cash value, but both types of permanent life insurance can accumulate cash value. There is also a type of term insurance that has a "return of premium" feature that will return all premiums back at the end of the term. This type of term life policy is not actually accumulating cash value because you only get back the premiums you paid.
