Illinois Life Insurance

While it may be difficult to imagine, it’s important to prepare in advance for a time when you may no longer be around. You have worked so hard for everything you have and a proper life insurance policy will protect your loved ones and your assets when you have passed on.


Whether you’re a young professional starting a family or a veteran business executive preparing to retire, life insurance can offer you many options. Our dedicated team can find the right plan or mixture of plans – for your specific needs.


For Illinois residents, there are two main types of life insurance: term and whole. Here’s how they compare:


Term Life Insurance Basics:

  • Coverage for a “term” or period of your life.
  • Lower premiums for higher coverage.
  • Rates can change after specific terms expire.
  • No equity – cannot be used as cash value.


Whole Life Insurance Basics:

  • Exactly like it says – permanent, not for a specific period.
  • Protection carries with you your whole life.
  • Can build equity and have cash value.
  • Higher premiums than term life, but can be more valuable in the long run.


Term and Whole Life Combined:

  • Build a lifelong base of whole life coverage.
  • Supplement specific times of your life with term insurance.
