Term life insurance covers you for a specific period of time, typically from 5 to 30 years. When you buy term life insurance, you lock in your premium and coverage for the entire term. When your term expires, you may have the option to renew your policy at a higher cost premium or let your coverage expire. Some policies also let you convert to whole life insurance or universal life insurance, typically between one and five years before the policy ends.
When you buy a term life insurance policy, you start by choosing the term length and your coverage amount. If you die within the policy term, your life insurance company will pay out your selected coverage amount, also known as the death benefit, to your beneficiary.
The most common term life insurance policies are 20-year policies.
