1 Term Life Insurance Chapter 13 Life Insurance Policies (Part II) April 18 & 20 Purchased for a specific period of time (e.g., 1 or 5 years, or to a specific age, 60-70). If death does not occur during this period, no proceeds are paid. Term insurance may have a face amount that is level or decreasing. On some policies the face amount may increase; this would be a useful feature to handle the reduction of the purchasing power of a fixed face amount due to inflation. Term insurance is used for temporary needs, or when maximum protection is desired for a minimum premium outlay. 4 Participating vs. Nonparticipating Policies Term Life Insurance Participating policies pay participating dividends to policy owners who are owners of the company - non taxable since considered return of unneeded premium Participation in expenses, investments, cost of insurance - long term trends Nonparticipating - stock holders participate in the form of stockholder dividends - taxable. Premiums Participating Dividends If Paid x Policy Term If Death Face Paid To Beneficiary 2 5 Basic Types of Life Insurance Coverage Term Life (cheapest form of life insurance) Whole Life Universal Life Variable Life These life policies are different in Death benefit Cash value saving Premium payments Uses 3 Term Life Insurance Renewable feature The risk of becoming uninsurable is transferred to the insurer. Insured pays premium based on attained age and no medical exam is required. Contracts are generally renewable until age 65 or 70. Convertible feature The insured is able to convert to a permanent form of coverage within a specified time period without evidence of insurability. The risk of becoming uninsurable is transferred to the insurer. Re-entry term life insurance Policy owner pays low premium as long as she/he can pass a medical exam periodically (each 5 years). If cannot pass the medical exam, the premiums increase significantly. Refer to the medical selection effect. 6 1

2 Term Insurance - Uses Temporary needs Funds for premiums limited but life insurance need is great Remember: Does not involve saving Premiums increase with age Usually unavailable after age Most term polices do not pay a death claim because of the period being covered. This is why term is relatively inexpensive. Example? Whole Life Policy In exchange for a premium the insurer promises to pay a beneficiary the face amount, whenever death occurs. Whole life insurance involves a savings (cash value) element as the payments in the early years of a policy exceed the mortality cost. These "overpayments" plus a survivor benefit and compound interest on them allow the "underpayments" in later years when the premium is less than the mortality cost. Coverage lasts until death, or age Use of Term Life Example Whole Life Insurance Term insurance would be most appropriate for a young husband and wife with children and a mortgage where a lot of insurance is needed to cover dependency years and college costs. $1,000 $14/year 25 Policy face Cash value Level Premium 100 age 8 11 Term Life Premium Consists of: Cost to pay death claims (MORTALITY COST), plus a risk reserve (?) Expenses and profit for the insurer Investment income Different Payment Patterns for Whole Life Insurance $1,000 PVFB Whole life paid up at pay life 10 pay life Single premium life (MEC) x time

3 Example For a healthy man aged 27, rank the following policies in the order of their premium size. List the policy with the largest premium first: Continuous-premium whole life Ten-payment whole life Single-premium whole life Whole life paid up at age 65 Uses of Whole Life Policy Whole life insurance would be most appropriate for a husband and wife with children and a sizeable estate generated through an owned business. Whole life would be needed to handle the estate tax and probate issues and provide taxdeferred savings. Tax and probate costs occur whenever the insured dies Uses of Whole Life Permanent Needs: Burial Income for permanent dependents - spouse, child, parents Federal Estate Tax (FET) State death taxes Business continuation Estate planning Whole Life Premium Consists of: Same components of a term life insurance premium, PLUS extra money to fund savings The feature of cash value Uses of Whole Life Savings function: Many people do not save unless forced to do so Investment management is provided. With participating policies, dividends are increased with improved investment results There are some tax advantages with cash value whole life. Cash values and/or proceeds are protected from creditor's claims. 15 Mechanics of Whole Life If you dies before age 100 Beneficiary receives face value, which is paid out of the mortality cost component in everyone else s (the pool s) premiums. Cash value becomes survivorship benefit to those still alive If you live to be age 100 Cash value = death benefit Insurer pays you the face value 18 3

4 Mechanics of Whole Life If you decide you do not want death protection, you can withdraw cash value and terminate the policy. If you decide to keep death protection but access savings (cash value), Borrow your cash value If you die before you pay it back (?) Types of Whole Life Policies: Single premium, continuous premium, limited payment. 19 $100,000 Universal Life -- Plan A X Death Benefit = Specified Amount age Cash value 22 Sources of Flexibility in the Traditional Whole Life Insurance Contract Accelerated Death Benefits Pays a portion of the face amount when an insured is certified terminally ill - expected to die within 12 months Guaranteed Insurability Option Allows the policy owner to purchase additional amounts of insurance at specified dates without evidence of insurability $100,000 Universal Life -- Plan B Death Benefit = Specified Amount + Cash Value $100,000 Cash Value X age Universal Life Insurance ULI death benefits Plan A fixed death benefit versus Plan B variable death benefit. Features of ULI a. Flexibility of premium payments b. Interest rate opportunity (risk shifted to the policy owner) c. Flexibility in death benefits d. Transparency of costs and returns 21 Uses of ULI & VLI Fulfill the buy-term and invest the difference strategy. The amount and timing of premium payments are flexible, the policy is considered a whole life contract, cash value amounts are invested on a tax-deferred basis, and the risk of the investment is shouldered by the insured. These polices are particularly useful where a whole life contract is needed and the person wants to take advantage of the tax-deferred investing, while benefiting from professional investment management while generating market rate of returns. 24 4

5 Buy Term and Invest the Difference Table 13-7 (p. 269) illustrates the difference in premiums between term insurance and whole life insurance. The BTID strategy is based on the notion that the investment return and accumulated savings outside the life insurance policy may be significantly greater than returns and accumulations inside the policy. 25 Objective Question #1 The most simple form of life insurance is: a. Single premium whole life. b. Term life insurance. c. Universal life insurance. d. Variable life insurance. 28 Buy Term and Invest the Difference Advocates say: a.

Death benefit proceeds are exempt from federal income tax but may be subject to estate taxes under certain conditions. Interest and dividends paid on a life insurance policy accumulate tax deferred. Forces people to save cash value policies. Investments are managed by professional portfolio managers.
