Life insurance policies are generally divided into two types, term insurance, and permanent insurance. Term insurance provides protection for a specific period of time, while permanent insurance provides coverage for your entire lifetime. Permanent insurance policies may be further divided into two categories: participating and non-participating policies. In this article, we will focus on non-participating whole life insurance policies.
What is Non-Participating Whole Life Insurance?
Non-participating whole life insurance is a type of permanent life insurance that provides coverage for your entire lifetime, and also has a savings element. In this type of policy, the premiums you pay are used to fund both the death benefit and a savings account. The savings account grows over time and can be accessed by the policyholder during their lifetime. Non-participating policies do not pay dividends, and the benefits are fixed and non-negotiable.
Non-participating whole life insurance policies are often more expensive than term insurance policies because they provide lifetime coverage and have a savings component. The premiums for non-participating policies are level and remain constant throughout the life of the policy. These policies are best suited for individuals who want lifetime coverage and a savings component.
