There are two main types of life insurance: term life insurance and permanent life insurance.
Term life insurance is the type of life insurance most people are familiar with. It pays a cash benefit to your loved ones (also known as your beneficiaries) if you were to pass away during the term. The term is how long the policy lasts. Typical terms are 10, 20 or even 30 years.
