Permanent life insurance
Lifetime insurance protection – guaranteed!
Permanent life insurance policies do not expire; they are intended to protect your loved ones permanently. Some types of these policies accumulate cash value, although they should not be purchased solely for that use, since their primary purpose is to provide protection. Permanent life insurance policies have variations. Your insurance agent can provide you with specific details to help you choose the policy that best serves your needs. If you value added security, flexibility, cash value and lifetime coverage, some form of permanent life insurance may be right for you.
