When applying for a policy, you can easily do so by phone or email.

Policy Duration

Once established, your policy remains active for a specified period (typically up to 40 years, depending on your circumstances). In the event of your passing during this period, a predetermined lump sum payment will be disbursed.

Payment Schedule

To maintain your coverage, you must make regular monthly payments, known as life insurance premiums.

Documentation Process

Should you pass away within the policy term; your beneficiaries can file a claim. This process involves completing a claims form and submitting a death certificate to the insurer.

Upon approval of the claim, your beneficiaries will receive the lump sum payment. This financial assistance can support them in meeting essential financial obligations and other significant expenses.

It’s crucial to note that if you outlive the policy term, no payout will be issued, and your beneficiaries will not be able to make a claim after the policy has expired.

When calculating the appropriate amount of level term life insurance you require, it is crucial to assess the necessary funds your loved ones would require to manage essential expenses in your absence.
