In a recent post on term life insurance, we noted the advantages of this type of policy. It is a less expensive form of life insurance that permits a young couple to protect against the untimely death of the wage-earner. The negative aspect of term insurance is that it, in most instances, lacks a savings feature. When the term expires, the policy has no value.
There is a way to perhaps have your cake and eat it too. The product is a term life insurance policy with a rider that provides for a return of your premium payments at the end of the term. The insured has both the protection of the policy during the term and at the end of the term the savings in the form of the returned premiums.Out of curiosity, we confirmed with an insurance agency that such a product does still exist.
