What Is Term Life Insurance?

Term insurance provides protection for a specified period of time; a term of 1, 5, 10 or 20 years or up to age 65 is available. This type of policy only pays a benefit if you die during the policy term. Term insurance does not build cash value. If you stop paying your premium, the insurance expires. This insurance generally is less expensive than other types of life insurance.
