Life insurance is one of the most important insurance types because it provides financial protection and security for your beloved ones if you are not around. Life insurance is a guarantee that your dependents will not be left in need after you pass away. If you have never had it before, you may have a lot of questions. Peiffer Insurance has prepared the list of things you should know about this type of insurance:
- Life Insurance in Pennsylvania is regulated under Title 40 of the state statutes. They describe how insurance companies should operate and spell out certain rights that policyholders have.
- There is a 10 day free look period that every new policyholder has. Within 10 days, a policyholder can review the insurance and cancel it with a full refund if they are not satisfied. There are also some types of policies that provide free look periods that last longer than 10 days.
- If a policyholder missed a payment, a grace period starts. In Pennsylvania, the grace period lasts 30 days, during which the insurance remains active, and a policyholder can make a payment without the policy lapsing.
- Life insurance can be divided into 2 types - term life insurance and permanent life insurance. Term insurance is a type of life insurance valid only for a certain period of time (usually, no longer than 30 years). Permanent life insurance provides lifelong coverage and usually is more expensive than term insurance.
