Permanent Life Insurance


A Permanent Life insurance policy is going to last your entire life and build cash value.  In addition to providing death benefit protection to help ensure your family has the funds to meet their needs should anything happen to you, a cash value life insurance policy is flexible enough to meet a variety of needs during your lifetime. Cash value is built over time through a combination of net premium payments and interest.  A portion of your premium payments on a permanent life insurance policy goes toward a cash value account. The potential cash value in your policy grows each year with interest, tax-deferred.  Once you have accumulated enough cash value, you can opt to use it to cover your premium payments. If you decide to withdraw some cash value, you may have to resume premium payments to keep the life insurance policy in force.
