Three Types of Insurance You Need
Posted on December 17, 2013
Starting in 2014, most Americans will be required to carry health insurance. The following three forms of insurance are not mandatory, but they may help you look after your family now and into the future.
Short-term policies usually begin paying benefits about two weeks after a claim, and continue for a few months up to two years. Long-term policies generally start paying benefits after several weeks to several months and may continue until age 65.
Term life insurance pays a benefit only if you pass away during the term of the policy. Whole life insurance pays a benefit regardless of when you pass away, as long as you make your scheduled premium payments. Whole life contracts also accumulate cash value, against which you can borrow, and the policies usually have much higher premiums than term insurance.
LONG-TERM CARE INSURANCE
Long-term care insurance can help cover the cost of assistance you may need with activities of daily living as you grow older. This insurance helps keep your savings from being consumed by insurance expenses, and helps ensure that your long-term care needs will not be a financial burden to loved ones.
