What is Pension Term Insurance?
Pension Term Insurance is a life insurance policy that covers you up until retirement. If you were to die before you reached retirement your family would receive a lump sum of money. It’s a way to take off any financial burdens at that time.
The money can be used by your loved ones to pay any bills, daily expenses, or rent. The lump sum of money will act as a replacement income for your family and provide them with financial security.
Personal Pension Term Insurance: It’s designed for self-employed individuals or employees who don’t have a pension.
Executive Pension Term Insurance: This type of insurance protects company executives and company directors.
How does it work?
You will pay a regular amount of money into your Pension Term Policy. Until the date you have chosen for retirement, your contributions will provide for the level of life cover needed. However, It’s important to know that, no payments will be made to your family if you live until the end of the policy.
This type of insurance can insure up to four times your salary. In addition, you can insure more if you’re willing to pay more. Indeed, there is no limit for personal pension term insurance.
