Is asset life insurance?

I believe you're asking if life insurance is considered an asset and I would say yes. Generally speaking there are cash value type life insurance policies and term life insurance policies that tend to not have a cash value. Cash value policies; whole life insurance, universal life insurance, etc. have a quantifiable value to them considered to be equivalent to the cash surrender value if not more. This would be considered an asset in most instances. Although most term life policies do not carry a cash surrender value, you could potentially think of it as an asset as someone may be willing to purchase that policy from you. If you were to consider selling your life insurance, someone like a viatical company or life settlement company will likely pay you for it. The difficulty lies within valuing certain types of policies due to stricter IRS definitions, an ever changing life insurance industry, and more regulations. The value of a particular life insurance policy really depends on who is asking and what type of policy you hold. The value may be calculated differently for example if a policy is being given to a charity or if it being accounted for for Medicaid purposes.. "Is asset life insurance?" I would say yes to that question more times than no.

What is the difference between term and whole life insurance?

Term life insurance only lasts for a specific number of years, but whole life insurance will cover you for the rest of your life as long as you've paid the full amount of premiums. It is radically different from term life insurance, because some of your monthly premiums are invested into shares, bonds and other investment vehicles. This acts as a 'cash value' savings asset that you can claim if you live longer than the length of your policy or borrow against the amount, but it makes whole life insurance policies more expensive than term life insurance policies.

Whole life insurance?

It is Life insurance that will last your entire life. The premiums are paid for life, or a period of time such as 20 years, age 65 or age 100. It builds a cash or surrender value that you can access through policy loans or simply cashing in the policy. Whole Life will cost you more initially but if you want life insurance when you die, it is the best bet. Think of it as renting a house (term) or buying the house (whole life). Which is the greater asset? Whole life insurance is a type of permanent life insurance which remains in effect for the entire life of the insured, provided premiums are paid. Generally, the life insurance rate (or premium) for whole life policy is fixed. Whole life insurance policies also accrue cash value over the years which if required can be accessed by the policy holder.
