For you people who are wondering if it’s practical to invest in insurances, it’s important that you are aware of what you are investing in. In this way, you will know if your insurance policy is worth your money. You will know if the value is increasing significantly after years of paying a premium. Investing in insurance is also great especially if you are young because most companies only require a thousand premiums for you to start. If you can afford to pay for monthly premiums, I recommend you to start as early as now. Here are the types of insurance policies where you should invest in.

Have you heard of this term already? If not yet, today’s the day you are going to learn about VUL. To make it simple, VULs are insurance policies that combine both whole life insurance and investment. This is the type of insurance where you will get death benefits plus accumulated cash value. When the insured dies, the death benefits will be given anytime while the accumulated cash value is invested in balanced portfolios, equity funds, bonds, money market, etc. It’s ideal for investors who are looking for more liquid investments but want life insurance as well.
Well if you are looking for reasons to get VUL, let me give you some. Since this is a combination of life insurance and investments, the death benefit payout is tax-free. The insured will enjoy the total amount of the benefit. With this insurance type, the ability to withdraw cash is also present. Unlike the whole life insurance alone, VUL lets you enjoy its benefits while you are still alive. Its best feature includes its liquidity. There is also the potential to earn higher investment returns because of its diversified and well-managed investments. Those are just a few reasons and you will definitely learn of the other types once you get one.
Aside from VUL, you can also choose from term insurance and whole life insurance. The term insurance lasts only for 1 to 10 years depending on your chosen range. The death benefits will be paid within the range but if the insured outlived the term period, that’s the time the coverage ends and the insured will get nothing from it. Meanwhile, the whole life insurance covers your entire life. The benefits come not only with death benefits but as well as saving components that you can use for your retirement or educational fund of your children.
