Should You Buy Term or Whole Life Insurance (420 Friendly Edition)
Should you buy term or whole life insurance? That is one of the first questions you should answer when looking into cannabis friendly life insurance. The good news is that since there are only about a dozen companies who insure recreational cannabis at reasonable rates, you don’t have the overwhelming 800+ life insurance companies to choose from. Luckily, some of the best life insurance companies don’t care whether you smoke weed or not.
The First Thing You Need to Know When Looking Into Term or Whole Life Insurance
Term life insurance means that the life insurance company will pay your beneficiaries a set amount if you die during a specified time period. It sounds a lot like gambling to many people. This unknown factor is why people sometimes choose permanent life insurance instead of term. There are several types of term life insurance. But they all fit under the basic umbrella of term insurance as opposed to permanent.
(Whole life insurance falls under the category of permanent insurance. We will use permanent insurance going forward to mean all types of life-long life insurance, including whole life.)
Permanent life insurance stays with you for however long you live. That is assuming you pay your premiums. If you stop paying, then the policy lapses. The types of permanent life insurance represent different needs for your family. Some of them also function as investment vehicles.
The next several sections are dedicated to term life insurance followed by permanent life insurance. Lastly, there is a comparison of the two.
