In this video I will breakdown Term Life Insurance vs. Whole Life Insurance, to give you an idea of which is best for you.

Life insurance is one of those necessary things in life, because life happens! It’s better to have life insurance and not need it, than need it and not have it.

The fact is, we all eventually need life insurance and this video will hopefully help you decide which is best for you.

Term life insurance provides coverage for a specific amount of time (usually 20-30 yrs). If you or your spouse passes away during this time, your beneficiaries will receive a payout from the policy.

Term life is much more affordable than whole life. Typically this works out to be $7 per month in 20 yr term, vs $100 with whole life cash value.

Term life has no cash value until the death occurs, so itโ€™s not worth anything until you need it, which is fine.

Whole life is a form of permanent life insurance with 3 components:
1. Premiums
2. Death Benefits
3. Cash Value Accumulation (savings aspect)

When you pay your premium a portion is applied to the death benefit and cash value.

The first 5-10 years a majority is applied to the death benefits (cost of insurance) along with fees and commissions.

After this, the cash value will receive a great portion of the premium
Beneficiaries are only entitled to receive the death benefit portion of the policy when you die!!

You have no choice in how the life insurance company applies the premium you pay.

You can cash in or surrender your policy at any time to get your money out, but you lose the insurance!

Sorry but to me it seems that theyโ€™re always pushing term life rather than whole. What heโ€™s not saying is that when that term runs out you get nothing. Term is like Paying rent versus whole life is owning a house.

Mustafa Saeed says:

I have a whole life policy that the death benefit grows with the cash value. I got it 30 years ago 100K now it is worth 173K. I also have the option to pay the premium with dividends. Marko's video is biased toward whole life insurance. Marko failed to mention that Whole life insurance pays Dividends and has living benefits. Your money grows tax-deferred and you have tax free access to your money. whole life insurance is permanent and the premium is guaranteed to never increase. Term insurance is temporary and very expansive in the long term. Term insurance is great for the short term and it is not sustainable for your entire life. If your goal is short term then term insurance is great and if you are a long term planner like me then whole life the best option. I personally have both. I have term insurance to protect my income for 20 years and I have whole life insurance to save money tax-deferred for my retirement and final expanse. My term insurance is upgradeable at my current health rating so I am planning on upgrading them in the future. Marko, please educate yourself before making these videos.

Tamuno-Opubo Cookey-Gam says:

Hey Marko, currently considering getting insurance. An MLM (WFG) is trying to sell me UL (Universal Life). A quick PFC Reddit review led me to an insurance quote website that quoted me less than 50% of the insurance premium (discounting the investment).
Now my question is what happens at the end of the term insurance? Do I get any money at the end of the term?

V.A G.A says:

Correct. But in the other hand how much does the bank give you in return? Also, I've called my insurance company and I recorded them telling me that yes the benifeciary does receive the guarantees. Something you failed to disclose.

Debojit Mandal says:

So term is better then whole

I feel ready to argue with a primerica agent after watching this video

C B says:

But term and invest the difference.
#1 way to win the money game.
Not all term is the same and any insurance that involves a โ€œsavingsโ€ account is screwing you and your family. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
