South Carolina Homeowner Insurance
Life Insurance can help protect your family and is an excellent way to accumulate money for
college, retirement or unplanned expenses. A person should have life insurance that
approaches six to eight times their annual gross income. Under current laws, there is generally
no federal income tax on death benefits paid to a named beneficiary.
Using the strength and experience of our life insurance markets, we offer affordable term life,
whole life, and universal life insurance policies.
Life insurance coverage for a specified length of time. A term life insurance policy is usually
purchased with a particular need in mind. Beneficiaries will collect, usually tax free, the face value
of the policy upon the insured (your) death. Term life is attractive for those with a limited income,
high short term insurance needs, or for personal family protection.
If the insured survives the time period, the policy expires. There is no cash value at the expiration of
a term life insurance policy. Some policies have a convertible feature permitting a policyowner to
exchange a term policy for a cash value policy without evidence of insurability.
Level Term Life Insurance Policy Features
A constant death benefit and a level premium for a specified number of years. We offer 10, 15,
20, and 30 year terms.
Decreasing Term Life Insurance Policy Features
Has a decreasing death benefit and a level premium.

The most popular choice for those seeking to cover permanent needs, such as
contributing to a survivor's nest egg, paying off final expenses, etc. Whole life
insurance provides permanent, lifelong insurance coverage. The benefit amount
remains the same and is payable to the beneficiary(s) at the time of the insured's
(your) death. It also offers an opportunity to build cash value, so you can take a
loan on your policy to fund major purchases or to provide for unexpected costs.

Whole life insurance has a fixed premium and a level death benefit to age 100.
The premiums don't increase with age, which averages the cost of the policy
over your life. The cash value increases with time until it equals the death benefit
at age 100. This type of policy never has to be renewed or converted. The cash
value is an amount of money that you are guaranteed to receive in the event of
policy cancellation.
Variations of Whole Life Insurance include:
Modified Premium - lower fixed premium for the first 3 or 5 years, and then
premiums increase. These policies work well for individuals that expect to
improve their financial condition in the near future.

Graded Premium - premium increases each year for the first 5 years, and
then is fixed.

A flexible premium policy that combines protection against premature death with a
savings account that typically earns a money market rate of interest. A universal life
insurance policy is a combination of term life insurance protection with the cash
savings value of whole life insurance. Interest rates paid on the cash value are
typically higher than with whole life insurance because they tend to follow the
Premiums for universal life insurance policies can be paid in a lump sum, annually,
or anywhere in between. Interest on the cash value is usually guaranteed, but will
vary according to the investment performance. Each month deductions are made
from the cash value fund to support the costs of the insurance protection. As long
as the cash value is substantial enough to maintain the monthly costs, the policy
will remain in force. Typically the death benefit reduces in proportion to the increase
in cash value, thus causing a level death benefit.
