Defining Term Life Insurance

You might be thinking, “What is a Term Life Insurance Policy?”

Term life insurance is exactly what it sounds like – a life insurance policy that you buy for a set number of years – a term – to help your family financially in the event of your death.


That leads to the next logical question: “How Does Term Life Insurance Work?”

Term life insurance plans pay your designated beneficiaries a lump sum benefit if you die within the select policy term. Policy benefits are paid to your beneficiary and can be used as they wish, whether that is for mortgage payments, travel costs, or school for children.


And lastly, “How Long is Term Life Insurance?”

UnitedHealthcare Term Life SafeGuard plans from Golden Rule Insurance Company are sold in 10 or 20 year. The longer the policy, the higher your life insurance quotes are likely to be.

Adding Critical Illness Coverage

Worried about an illness straining your or your family’s resources? Term Life from UnitedHealthcare has another benefit you can choose to add, Critical Illness. If you purchase the optional Critical Illness riderF45 and are diagnosed with a qualifying illness, you can receive a cash benefit. This benefit pays you upon the diagnosis of the following qualifying illnesses

Covered Critical IllnessesF46

  • Heart attack
  • Life threatening cancer
  • Loss of hearing, speech, or vision
  • Major organ transplant
  • Paralysis
  • Coma
  • Renal Failure
  • Stroke
  • Carcinoma in situ
  • Coronary artery bypass graft

Important: The benefit amount received from the Critical Illness rider will be subtracted from your Term Life insurance policy benefit.



Term vs. Whole Life Insurance : What’s the Difference Between Term and Whole Life Insurance?

Term life insurance policies are active for only a select number of years, making these more budget-friendly and beneficial depending on your life circumstances. These plans may be a good option if you are –


Raising children or
putting them through college


Paying off a


Earning a majority of the
household income

In other words, a Term Life insurance policy can be a good option if you have certain timely events that you would need to be able to cover in the event of your death.

Whole Life insurance is a more enduring (often more expensive) form of life insurance. Policies offer you coverage for life, guaranteed benefits in the event of your death and a cash value that grows each year, one that you can add to on a tax-favored basis or even borrow against in some cases.

No one enjoys thinking about what would happen when they’re gone, but having Term Life insurance can help your loved ones financially in your absence.

Term Life with Critical Illness in Action: An Example

1. You select your Term Life policy term (for example, 10 years)

2. You select your benefit levels (for example, $50,000 Term Life benefit with $25,000 Critical Illness optional benefit)

3. You are diagnosed with a critical illness after the waiting period ends and receive a one-time Critical Illness benefit payment per diagnosis (for example, you are diagnosed with a terminal illness and receive $25,000 for your optional Critical Illness benefit)

4. The amount of Critical Illness benefit paid reduces the amount of Term Life benefit remaining (for example, $50,000 Term Life benefit – $25,000 Critical Illness benefit paid = $25,000 Term Life benefit remaining.)
