Term Life Insurance FAQ

What is term life insurance?

Term life insurance guarantees payment of a stipulated death benefit if death occurs to the insured person during the specified term. The policy holder can choose to renew, convert or terminate the policy once the term expires. 

What happens to term life insurance when it expires?

Term life insurance simply expire. The insurance company sends a notice to the policy holder and the holder no longer needs to pay any premiums. There is no more death benefit. 

What is the difference between term and whole life insurance?

Term life insurance is for a set period of time. Policies are usually ten to thirty years. Once term life insurance expires, the holder can choose to renew the policy. However, premiums will be recalculated based on factors such as life expectancy, age and health of the insured.

Whole life insurance (traditional life insurance) covers the policy holder’s entire life and provides death benefit coverage. It usually includes a savings component that may accumulate cash value. Whole life insurance will cost you significantly more than term life insurance.

Which life insurance is better - term or life?

This depends on what you’re looking for. Term life insurance will give you the biggest death benefit per ringgit paid in premiums. However, traditional or permanent whole life insurance provides long-term protection and has a cash value investment component.

What are the benefits of term life insurance?

Term life insurance will provide a payout for your beneficiaries if you die within the covered period. It costs the least among all types of life insurance.

How long should your term life insurance be?

Because term life insurance is only for a period of time, you’ll want the payout to be able to cover debts and other obligations. It is often meant to pay expenses that would have been covered by the insured person’s income. Thus, you’ll need to estimate the amount your family will need during the time you’re insuring for.

What are the factors that affect term life insurance premiums?

Obviously, the term length and coverage amount will affect the rates. Some other factors include your:

  • Age

  • Health

  • Family health history

  • Gender

  • Weight

  • History of substance and nicotine use

  • Risky hobbies and activities

  • Credit
