Yes, if your life insurance policy has accumulated cash value. Not all life insurance policies will accumulate cash value: for example, term life insurance policies will not accumulate any cash value. Whole Life and Universal life policies can accumulate cash value and the policy owner can take loans in the limit of the cash value (some companies limit loans to 70 - 80% of the cash value).
No. Only whole life insurance policies (sometimes called "permanent insurance") accumulate cash value. Policy loans are generally available from the accrued cash value. Since term insurance does not gather cash value, policy loans are unavailable.

Term Life Insurance
If you have an old life insurance policy can you cash it in for cash value
A life insurance policy may have cash value if it is a "whole life insurance policy". This is a kind of life insurance, distinguished from "term" life insurance, that accumulates cash value for the period that it is in force and premiums are paid. Each premium paid goes to pay the cost of "indemnity" (the death benefit), the administrative costs incurred by the insurer, with all or a portion of the remainder going into the cash value. The cash value element of the policy is SOMEWHAT like a savings account within the policy. It grows slowly at first but faster as the policy matures. When a sufficient amount of cash value has accumulated, policy loans from the cash value are usually allowed per the terms of the policy. The loans bear interest at a rate provided for by the policy. Term life insurance does not accumulate cash value.
Check the policy itself. If you have a whole life, or some UL, policy some of them accumulate cash value which you can cash in. Call your company and get an illustration of what the values are and will be over time. Generally, Term life is a better deal for your needs, though not always.

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.
