Life insurance basics

In the simplest sense, life insurance pays a cash benefit to the beneficiary if the insured person dies while the policy is in force. The beneficiary can use the cash for any reason — to replace lost income, cover living expenses, pay off debts, fund college, save for retirement and so much more.

Life insurance can offer other benefits too, including cash value, loans and optional riders. It’s available to individuals and often to groups as part of an employee benefits package.
