While premiums typically cost more on a participating whole life insurance policy than on a term insurance policy, you are guaranteed a death benefit. There is no guarantee you will receive a death benefit with a term life insurance policy.

A whole life insurance policy is also an asset that provides you living benefits in the form of a cash value that allows you to generate wealth and create equity over time through contractually guaranteed tax-deferred growth, and potential annual dividends. You can use this accessible capital stored in your participating whole life insurance policy as a source of financing over your lifetime. So, while premiums may be higher, you receive a two-fold return on the money you put into a whole life insurance policy.

Something else to consider when you weigh the decision between the purchase of a whole life insurance policy over a term life insurance policy is your whole life insurance premiums never go up—premiums get locked in for life. However, once your term life insurance policy expires, you must renew the policy at a time where the cost of the premium will be higher, and you may very well find yourself priced out of the market.
