Many people like term life insurance, because it is less expensive than other types of insurance. A young couple can protect against the untimely death of the working spouse by purchasing term life. The only downside to term life is that you are insuring that you will survive a period of time (20 years is typical). Once that period expires, you generally have nothing to show for it (other than you outlived the term). Even though there is no savings aspect to term life, it is a very useful planning tool. If you have thought about term life as an option, you may want to pick up the pace. According to an Article in The Wall Street Journal, the premium rates are on the rise and are expected to continue.
