Redeeming cash can be accomplished through a simple phone call to the policyholder service department of your company. It can be done as soon as cash has accumulated, but must be done in full recognition of the impact the loss of cash will have on both the cash account and the survivor benefit.

Universal life insurance is a modified, flexible form of whole life insurance. Part of your premium goes toward insurance coverage, while the rest is invested to increase the policy's cash value.Benefits of Universal Life Insurance:Universal life insurance is the most flexible of all life insurance plans:* It lets you choose the amount of protection you want, increasing or decreasing your coverage as your needs change.* It lets you control the amount and frequency of your payments. If you have extra cash, you can pay more and the extra money grows tax-deferred. If you're short on cash, you can pay less and let the policy's accumulated cash value pay the remainder of the monthly charges.If you do decide to invest in a universal life insurance policy, be sure you plan to keep the policy for at least 15 years. It will usually take that long before you are eligible for any return on the policy.
Without seeing the policy, it is hard to say. However, there are at least a couple of possibilities: 1. It is a "decreasing term" policy. This is a variety of life insurance that has a high face value at the beginning of the policy, but that decreases over the life of the policy. This kind of policy is often sold to a fairly young head of household, whose life insurance needs are high. The need arises, for example, because in the event of premature death, funds are required to raise children. As the policy ages, and therefore the theoretical need for life insurance protection decreases, the amount of life benefits decrease. 2. It is a whole life policy. This is otherwise called "permanent insurance". It builds cash value, which is a kind of savings account built into the policy. A part of the monthly premium is applied to the cost of insurance, and a part is applied to the cash value. Although cash value accumulates slowly at first, over the life of the policy, it can build substantially. Additionally, some policies allow the policyholder to divert what would otherwise be held by the insurer and applied to cash value, to mutual funds or other investments. While there is a risk to doing this, such as the stock market declining, there is also the potential of the market rising and the cash value increasing more quickly. Over a period of time that cash value has accumulated, the policyholder may have decided, or neglected, to pay premiums. For at least some of the time that premiums were not paid by the policyholder, the insurance company may have deducted premiums from the cash value, thereby keeping the policy in force. All of that said, it is conceivable, but unlikely, that a policy could have survived on its cash value for 25 years
That depends on the life insurance policy. The policy must be one that builds cash value before a loan can be taken. Simply, if the policy is a 'term life policy' it lasts for a defined period - 10 years, 20 years, etc. - and charges a low premium. It doesn't build cash value you can borrow against. 'Whole life policies', on the other hand, have a part of the premium paid set aside for cash value. For this reason, the amount of premium charged for a whole life policy will be higher than the premium charged for a term life policy with the same face value. NOTE: A loan is taken against the cash value of a policy, not the face value ( death benefit ). So if the face value is $10,000 and the cash value is $3,000, the loan would be taken against the $3,000.
