Matured. That and a good plan. You can stop paying now. Take the proceeds in cash and buy a Single Premium Whole Life (if you are insurable. What does that do for you??? Say you have a $10,000 whole life plan worth $10,000. You take that and dump it all into a SPWL which is now worth maybe $15,000 or $20,000 death benefit depending on your age. Also, you owe nothing more in premiums and you can get at the cash value if you need to! The death benefit will continue to increase as will the cash value over time. It's a no-brainer if done properly.

Can you borrow money from a universal life insurance policy?

Most Life insurane companines allow you to borrow money from your Universal Life Policy. There will be an interest rate charged, the interest rate will be reflected in your policy under "Loans". You will only be able to borrow against the cash accumulation account. The amount in the account is usually the difference between the cost of insurance, plus expenses and the amount that you have been putting into the policy, plus any earned interest. The more money you pay into the policy above the cost of insurance and expenses, the more you should have in your cash accumulation account. Remember, you determine the amount of the premiums paid into the policy, the amount has to at least meet the minimum premium set by the life ins. company, and cannot exceed the top limit placed by IRS to maintain a life policy's tax benefits.

What does it mean when death benefit is larger than the face value?

It means that the payor paid enough premium into the policy that the accumulation of cash in the policy grew to an amount that exceeds the number shown as the life insurance amount. For example, there is a $50,000 life insurance policy. The payor paid $30,000 into the policy at policy inception and paid nothing else. The $30,000 is credited interest or is invested in the stock market so that the $30,000 grows over time to an amount that exceeds $50,000. If the $30,000 grows to $67,000, the death benefit is $67,000; not $50,000. The "face value" is $50,000.
