The million dollar insurance cover is a policy that encourages you to save for a certain time/term to earn a million dollars at the end of it all. It is a good way of putting your money aside as well as having long-term savings. This final payment is tax-free and is paid either at the end of your term or after your demise due to natural causes, disease, murder but never suicide. The fact that it comes in two packages (the term and life packages) makes it a product that is market-sensitive, because people have different needs.
What you need to understand
The first things you need to understand are the terms and conditions; it is one of those policies that you have to absolutely read the finer print. You need to understand the terms and conditions of the term and the ones for the life package so that you fully understand what you want and choose the right one to fit your circumstance. You also need to pick the one that is most pocket- friendly; that is, the one you can afford to pay even after your daily earning activity stalls.
Long-term vs short-term
You need to understand that for insurance companies, the longer the term of the insurance premium, the higher the risk and therefore you will have to pay a higher premium to cover them from this risk. You therefore need to decide on the kind of policy you want to take considering the amount of premium and if you can afford it.
The short-term payments are affordable considering that you will continue paying the same amount of premium without fear that it will increase on the fifth, tenth and fifteenth as they do in the long-term cover. This means that you will be in a position to plan your budget easily unlike someone paying the long-term premium.
The rates and the premium depend on other factors apart from the long-term and short-term issues; they depend on your health, gender, work, smoking, or nonsmoking, and lifestyle. You will have your quotation prepared depending on the questioner you fill and the answers you give, especially concerning your health. However, these requirements are different in different insurance companies.
