Insurance Options From Standard Life
Standard Life offers three types of life insurance products: whole life insurance, term life insurance and universal life insurance. Standard Life’s whole life insurance comes in the form of Whole Life 100 or Whole Life Limited Pay. Whole Life 100 allows you to stop paying premiums once you reach the age of 100. With Whole Life Limited Pay, you can pick the age at which you would like to stop paying premiums; for example, you can choose to stop paying premiums at the age of 65 or 75. Whole life insurance premiums are guaranteed to never increase.
Ten or Twenty Years?
Standard Life’s term life insurance is available either as a 10 year plan or a 20 year plan. With term life insurance, you can choose to continue renewing your policy after it expires until the age of 85. You have the option of converting your term life insurance policy into a permanent one up until you reach the age of 65. If you lead a healthy lifestyle, you may find yourself rewarded through Standard Life’s Life Profiles Preferred Rates Program, in which people who rank higher on the health scale receive lower premiums.
