Convert Your Life Insurance for a Lifetime of Value.

When you purchased your term life insurance policy, you recognized the need to protect your loved ones after you're gone. Now, you have an opportunity to make an even greater impact on the financial security of your family by converting your term policy to whole life insurance. In addition to offering a death benefit, whole life insurance also offers a number of benefits to you and your family while you're living.

Why convert now?

  • Your acceptance is guaranteed. No underwriting or medical exams are required.
  • You can lock in lower premiums. The younger you are when you convert, the lower your premiums, which can be guaranteed not to increase.
  • You'll have more time to accumulate cash value. The cash value of whole life insurance increases every year. Guaranteed. Waiting to convert for five or ten years can have a significant impact on the value of your whole life insurance policy.
  • Your conversion benefit won't last forever. The length of your conversion period varies according to the details of your term policy.

Living benefits of whole life insurance

Whole life insurance is a flexible financial asset that provides benefits for you and your family while you're living. As you pay premiums, the policy builds equity that grows tax deferred and could become a source of funding you can access at any age, for any reason. You can take a loan against the cash value, use it as collateral, take a portion of the cash outright or surrender the policy. No questions asked.1

The power of converting now

The cash value of a whole life insurance policy increases every year. Guaranteed. So when it comes to converting your term policy to whole life insurance, time is money. A delay of just five or ten years can have a significant impact on your policy's accumulated cash value.
