Universal Life Insurance Policies work by giving death benefits when one dies. Unlike other life insurance policies, universal life insurance policies generate interest over time.

You would need a whole life or an universal life policy with an income rider, and possibly a long term care insurance policy which would fall under a health insurance policy.

A life insurance policy is not a person and does not work therefor it does not have a professional occupation.

Universal Life insurance has variable premiums built into the policy (whether traditional Universal Life or Variable Universal Life). However, many people end up paying less than they need to and the policies don't work out the way they planned. If you do a Universal Life policy, make sure you have a trustworthy agent. As for variable face amounts, some term policies have built in options to enable increasing the face amount of the policy at certain points in time. This may also be an optional rider on some policies, but there is a cost to it. This can be a good idea if budget doesn't allow for the appropriate face amount. Often insurance companies will allow you to reduce the face amount of a policy and get a reduced premium. Permanent insurance (Whole Life and Universal Life) have variable face amounts based on dividends and interest that may add to the face amount over time. Feel free to ask more.

Limited payment life insurance, sometimes referred to simply as limited pay life insurance, is really a way of having the best of all worlds with a whole life policy. You pay a premium for a predetermined number of years and you have your policy for the rest of your life. Here is how the limited payment life insurance policies work.

Are you referring to a group policy offered through work or an individually owned life insurance policy? For individual life insurance policies, the owner of the policy has complete control and can name anyone they like as the beneficiary, and the owner does not need spousal permission to do this.

If the life insurance is part of a group life insurance policy, you will lose the benefits when employment stops. That's why it is recommended to get your personal life insurance policy, which you can take with you when you change jobs or in case of unemployment. It is never too late to get a new policy on your own. Talk to an experienced independent agent that can offer multiple options.

A life insurance trust is used to remove the assets and death benefit of the life insurance policy out of the insured's estate for estate tax purposes. If the insured were to remain the owner of the policy, the policy procedes would be estate taxable at the time of death. This is a non-issue if your assets are less the the allowable estate tax limits.

Real Life Cover is a type of insurance policy. It offers multiple types of cover under the one policy. Life insurance, income (in case of lost work from illness), critical illness (like a heart attack), and unemployment.

No, you don't pay for it. An interesting thought, but it won't work.

If your daughter is listed on your insurance policy and a premium is being collected for her, then she can use your insurance. If not, she will need to use her insurance policy at work.

National Savings Life Insurance Company of Murfreesboro, TN was acquired by Victory Life Insurance which in turn was acquired by United Fidelity Life Insurance Company, Kansas City, MO. Over the years, blocks of NSL policies have been sold to various carriers so if you have an old NSL policy, it might take some detective work to find which company is now servicing your policy.

Life settlements involve the sale of an in-force life insurance contract, by the contract owner, to a third party. Generally, the seller of the policy receives the policy's cash value, plus an additional amount determined by an appraisal-termed the "current market value." In consideration of the monies paid to the policy owner, the third party is: named the policy owner and beneficiary, continues to pay all premiums as they come due, and will receive the policy proceeds upon the death of the person insured under the policy. All types of life insurance, term, universal or whole life, can have market value much like real estate or equities. And, given the right circumstances, a life settlement can make a lot more sense than allowing an in-force life contract to lapse.

Universal and whole life insurance are both types of permanent life insurance, which means that you'll be offered guaranteed coverage up until death, as long as you are paying regular premiums on time. Both these policies have an in-built cash value that you can access after a few years of accumulation that you can surrender for most of its value or borrow against.In whole policies, premium rates you will pay are usually locked in for the rest of your life. Most whole life policies also have a non-guaranteed cash value element called 'dividends' which can enhance the value of the policy over time.Universal Life policies differentiate three elements in a policy and treat them separately. These 3 elements are the death benefit or protection element, the expense element and the cash value element. With this separation comes flexibility that allows the insured to modify the premium in case there is a need. After provisioning for administrative charges, death benefits, riders and supplemental income, interest is credited to the policy based on its cash value.

Life insurance companies offer no exam life insurance policies and comparison quotes over the Internet all the time. Life insurance brokerage companies work with life insurance providers to make no exam life insurance policies highly available and because these brokerage companies work for multiple life insurance providers, they can often make comparing policies very simple to do. What is no exam life insurance? The term no exam refers to no medical examination. Life insurance providers are betters, and the like to bet on winners based on a set of statistical scores that indicate whether a person is more or less likely to die based on their medical history. For that reason, many life insurance policies require a medical exam, but for people with a problematic medical history or those who have pre-existing medical conditions, it's not possible for them to qualify for a life insurance policy that requires a medical exam. Therefore, many life insurance providers have designed no exam life insurance policies to cover people who either don't want to or can't take a medical exam and be qualified for a life insurance policy. To shop for no exam life insurance, a person can either work with an agent or do their own research using the Internet. A simple search engine search for 'no exam life insurance' will yield a vast number of results, but you may find it's best to work with the recognized life insurance broker companies as they have access to a wider number of life insurance policies and can make comparing no exam life insurance policies much easier to do. After you find a list of no exam life insurance policies you may qualify for, you'll want to determine how much life insurance coverage you need and what type of coverage you need: term or whole. A term policy covers the insured for a period of time – the term of the policy. A whole policy covers the insured over their entire life as long as premiums are paid. Term policies by default require less in premiums than whole policies.

As it happens, I used to work in the insurance industry so I am familiar with this question. Life insurance policies typically have a clause that invalidates a claim if the insured commits suicide within a year of the date when the policy was purchased, but if you have had that insurance policy for a year or longer, then it remains valid even in the event of suicide. The concept behind this is that insurance companies don't want suicidal people (or their relatives) to buy life insurance policies to make the suicide more profitable. But if you bought your policy in good faith,, and the insured only subsequently became suicidal, then that is a death which deserves to be covered by the policy.

one can get the disability insurance policy through work if the job offers it, Wisconsin is where the policy is available.

This is a totally wrong conception. Even while you leave the company you are presently working for, the life insurance policy will continue provided you pay the renewal premia regularly.

Yes, unless your health condition is expected to be fatal in the next few years. However, if the condition shortens life span, your insurance rate will be higher. You could also consider life insurance through work or a mortgage payoff life insurance, which you can qualify for even if term life insurance is out of reach.

Term life insurance is by definition coverage for a period of time – it's temporary, and it builds no cash value over the life of the policy. When comparing online quotes for term life insurance, remember that you may also have life insurance through your employer that, when combined with the term life insurance policy's face amount, may provide enough coverage for your spouse, your children, or elderly parents in your care. When comparing online quotes, determine first how much coverage you need to protect those you may leave behind, and then determine how long that coverage will likely need to be in effect. For example, you may need only enough to cover the mortgage and remaining expected college expenses for your spouse and children. So, calculate the number of years and the approximate amount of money needed. Then use one of the many Internet websites to compare premium rates for those factors – amount of time and face value of the policy. Brokerage sites work with a wide number of life insurance companies, so running comparisons on online quotes for term life insurance has never been simpler. Term life insurance rates have been declining for the last two decades, partly due to the fact that Americans are overall healthier and live longer. Remember that term life insurance rates increase with the insured's age, so doing your comparison shopping earlier is a good idea. Who typically needs term life insurance? Term life insurance is most often purchased by younger individuals on a budget who need to obtain the maximum amount of payout protection at the lowest price available. These individuals are often single or married parents with young children who would be left in dire financial circumstances if one or both parents were no longer alive. How does term life insurance work? A term life insurance policy pays the beneficiary or beneficiaries the face amount of the life insurance policy if the insured person dies during the term of the life insurance policy. This means that a 15-year term life insurance policy with the face amount of $250,000 would pay that amount to the beneficiary or beneficiaries according to the terms of the policy if the insured person were to die during that 15 years in which the policy was in effect. What happens when the term is over? Often life insurance provider companies offer the insured the option to convert their term life insurance policies to permanent life insurance policies during the term of the policy. This can be a financially attractive option for many policy holders whose financial circumstances may have changed during the term of the original life insurance policy. A permanent life policy, often called whole life insurance, is a different coverage and the amount of its worth grows over time, giving the dependents of the insured a guaranteed payout when the insured dies.

Check your policy. It is usually a supplemental policy to your regular insurance.

If you are referring to group term life insurance the answer is no. The policy is a group policy and the policyholder is the company and the employee only and a spouse has no right to the policy. Sometimes there are individual life insurance policies sold to employees on a payroll deduction basis and they are group billed to the employer. These policies are able to be taken by the employee if they change employer and they can just change the payment type so that they pay the policies themselves.

Good health insurance! And can I recommend life insurance as well? :) In all seriousness, the companies that you are doing the stunt work for will be the best ones to ask that question too.
