  • Pros: Builds cash value over time, which can be borrowed against or withdrawn. Premiums typically remain level for the life of the policy.

c. Universal Life Insurance:

  • Pros: Flexibility to change premium amounts and death benefits. Cash value earns interest based on a specified rate.
  • Cons: Premiums and cash value growth may be impacted by changes in interest rates. Policyholders may need to monitor and manage their policies more actively.

d. Variable Life Insurance:

  • Explanation: Variable life insurance allows policyholders to allocate cash value among a variety of investment options, such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.
  • Pros: Potential for higher returns compared to other types of life insurance. Policyholders can choose investments based on their risk tolerance and investment goals.

f. Group Life Insurance:

  • Explanation: Group life insurance is typically offered through employers or associations and provides coverage to a group of people under one policy.
  • Pros: Often no medical exam required. Premiums may be lower than individual policies due to group rates.
