Insurance Definition: UNIVERSAL LIFE INSURANCE

By Compuquotes Team on March 27th, 2008

UNIVERSAL LIFE INSURANCE:

Definition:

  • A flexible premium policy that combines protection against premature death with a type of savings vehicle, known as a cash value account, that typically earns a money market rate of interest. Death benefits can be changed during the life of the policy within limits, generally subject to a medical examination. Once funds accumulate in the cash value account, the premium can be paid at any time but the policy will lapse if there isn't enough money to cover annual mortality charges and administrative costs.
