What is universal life insurance?

Universal life insurance is a sort of hybrid product between term life and whole life insurance. There are three different types, each with its own pros and cons.

  • Guaranteed Universal Life: This insurance lets you lock in level premiums for a selected term, but is more flexible than term life, as you can extend the term at any time. In addition, underwriting requirements are often more lenient than those for term life.
  • Indexed Universal Life and Current Assumption Universal Life: These two products allow you to accumulate cash value in your policy, much like whole life insurance. However, the trade-offs are variable premiums and no guarantees as to the exact cash value.
