Term Insurance provides protection for you and your family for a period of one or more years. The death benefit is paid only if you die within the specified term. Term life insurance typically offers the largest insurance protection for your premium dollar and generally does not build up cash value. Most term insurance policies are renewable for one or more terms even if your health has changed.
Each time you renew your policy for a new term, premiums may be higher. You may be able to trade many term insurance policies for a cash value policy during a conversion period -- even if you are not in good health. Premiums for the new policy will be higher than you have been paying for the term life insurance.

Universal Life Insurance is a unique 'combination' of term life insurance and whole life insurance. By providing the protection of term life and the cash value of whole life; universal life insurance appeals to consumers who prefer flexible premiums and death benefits.
By investing premiums in excess of actual insurance costs, your policy will begin to cumulate cash, which will eventually serve to counteract the higher insurance costs associated with aging. Typically, this cash value accumulation will earn a minimum interest rate (predetermined and guaranteed by the insurance company) and will fluctuate in accordance with the insurance company's investments.
The amount of your universal life insurance premium's, as well as the frequency with which you pay, is flexible. Provided there is sufficient cash value, your policy will not lapse because of a skipped premium payment. Another aspect? Although, universal life policies have annual premium requirements, the timing of those payments is quite flexible.
Your death benefit is another flexible component of a universal policy. The death benefit can be lowered or increased in accordance with your needs. For instance, you may wish to lower the benefit if your policy is to cover a decreasing liability, such as a business loan. On the other hand, as your family needs evolve you may feel more comfortable with an increased benefit. If this is an option you would like to consider, remember that any increases in the face amount of the policy will most likely require evidence of insurability and a physical may be required.
