Why Buy Life Insurance In Your 20's?
life insurance explained
When people normally think of life insurance, they may be thinking of multiple types: whole life insurance, term life insurance, and final expense insurance.
At InvoBH, we help you understand them so you can choose the type of policy, company, and coverage amount that suits you and your family’s needs.
What Are The Types of Life Insurance?
There are essentially two types of life insurance policies: Whole Life and Term Life
Whole Life Insurance
Whole life insurance policies will protect your family when you pass away, regardless of timing.
Term Insurance policies typically only cover you for a certain time, such as 25 years. You pay a monthly premium, and if you outlive the term, your insurance policy expires. For example, if you die after 30 years, your family will not receive a death benefit.
Final Expense Insurance
Final expense, aka burial insurance, is a small life insurance policy that is typically easy to qualify for. The death benefit is smaller than regular life insurance, typically anywhere from $2,000 to $50,000. Your family can use this money for anything they need, whether it be funeral expenses, outstanding bills, mortgages, or medical debt.
The major advantage of burial insurance policies is the lower monthly premium compared to standard life insurance. Burial insurance companies also typically accept those with pre-existing health conditions. People who are rejected from regular life insurance are often able to get final expense coverage to take care of their final arrangements.

Whole Life Overview
A whole life policy guarantees your family the death benefit.
However, it’s typically much more expensive than term life.
For a healthy applicant buying a $500,000 policy at age 40, the annual cost of whole life insurance is $5,728, compared to $315 for a 20-year term life policy.
Types of Permanent Life Insurance Policies
There are differences among the types of permanent life insurance policies.
- Whole life insurance - the most common type of permanent life insurance.
- Universal life insurance - offers greater flexibility than whole life.
- Variable universal life insurance - usually include many investment options that can help increase the cash value.
- Indexed universal life insurance - has no fixed interest rate on your cash value, which could lead to greater gains or losses.

Term Life Overview
A term life insurance policy is when a company sells you a policy that will only pay your beneficiaries if you pass away within a certain number of years, referred to as the term. A typical term is 25 years, but it depends on your specific policy. If you do not pass away in that time, your loved ones will not receive that death benefit.
Advantages & Disadvantages of Term Limits
The benefits of these policies are that they are generally more affordable than plans that do not have a term limit. The disadvantage of this type of policy is that your loved ones will not receive any money if you do not pass away within the time frame of the term. All of the money that you had paid into the policy will have been for nothing and your family will not benefit financially.

Final Expense Overview
A burial insurance policy works like many other types of policies:

- You pay a monthly premium, and
- The policy covers your beneficiaries once you pass away
A final expense insurance policy covers costs your loved ones incur when you pass away, like funeral, bills, or medical debt.
Death Benefit Coverage
death benefit is the amount your family receives once you pass away. Burial policies are meant to be small, so they only have small death benefits. While a regular life insurance policy may have a death benefit between $50,000 and $1,000,000, final expense insurance policies are typically between $2,000 to $50,000.
Types of Plans
There are different types of final expense plans, which includes guaranteed issue and simplified issue plans.
