Life Insurance

Life Insurance is not a fun topic to discuss but is one of the most important conversations you can have with your insurance agent.  

At Gnade Insurance Group we can help you determine which type of Life Insurance Policy is best suited for your needs and goals.

Some of the options are:

  • Term Life: Simplest and usually the least expensive option. This type is meant to cover the insured for a specific period of time but does not build any cash value.
  • Whole Life: Purchased to cover your entire life as long as the premium is paid and is generally more expensive than term because there is no expiration.  This policy will build a cash value.
  • Universal Life: A similar policy to whole life with more flexibility and higher earning potential.  Usually has a guaranteed cash value return but the premium may increase.
  • Variable Life: Whole life policy with a fixed premium but no guarantee on the cash value making it a riskier policy type.
We have some unique policies that can combine the different types and some that will return all the premium at the term.
