What is Whole Life Insurance?
Most things in life come with an expiration date — from groceries to coupons and even certain types of life insurance. But there's one exception to that rule: a whole life insurance policy. Whole life insurance rates.
Whole life insurance covers you for as long as you live (as long as premiums are paid on time), at a locked-in rate that won't increase as you age or if your health status changes. It may also build "cash value" over time, which is money that gets set aside with each payment you make, like a nest egg for the future.

A Set Rate that Can Be Worked Into Your Budget
Your predictable, fixed-rate payments can be made on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual basis. Once you buy whole life insurance, the rate you pay is guaranteed to stay the same, even as you age or your health status changes.
Let's say you buy it during your working years. You'll get to keep that same policy and premium rate when you retire.
And, speaking of retirement, that's another reason why people buy a whole life policy. It can act as a way to set money aside for the future.
