What is Universal Life Insurance?
Universal life is a type of flexible permanent life insurance that offers the low-cost protection of term life insurance as well as a savings element which is invested to provide a cash value buildup.
The death benefit, premiums, and savings element can be reviewed and altered as the circumstances of the policy holder change. Unlike whole life Insurance, universal life insurance allows the policy holder to use the interest from his or her accumulated savings to help pay premiums.
How does it work?
With a universal life insurance plan, you have the ability to put money into a savings component in your Universal Life policy. This “cash accumulation” grows at the policies guaranteed rate (average UT rate being 3%). This gives your money the ability to grow while being accessible rather than sitting in a savings account with little interest. As long as you pay your Insurance premiums, and have properly funded your policy, you are able to take a loan out on your money by borrowing against your cash value.
