Term Life Insurance

Term life insurance is a good fit for short-term needs or those that have a specific end point. Simply choose a term policy duration to meet those needs—for example, to help ensure your family will be able to pay a 20-year mortgage, you can choose a 20-year term policy. You choose the length of coverage you need, such as 10, 15, 20, or even 30 years. During this period, called the level-premium period, your premiums are guaranteed not to change. After this period, premiums will increase each year until the policy ends (usually at age 95) and may not be guaranteed.

  • All of our term policies offer premiums that are guaranteed to stay the same during the level-premium period.

Most of our term policies offer:

  • The option to convert the policy, which means you can convert your term policy to a permanent policy without having to take a new medical exam.
  • A choice of ways to customize your policy with add-ons known as riders.

Footnotes

  • 1 State variations may apply. 15-year term and the Terminal Illness Rider may not be available in all states.

  • 2 The Terminal Illness Rider is available without an extra premium. Obtaining benefits under the terms of the rider will reduce and may eliminate the death benefit. Benefits paid under the Terminal Illness Rider are intended to be treated for federal tax purposes as accelerated life insurance death benefits under IRC §101(g)(1)(b). Tax laws related to the receipt of accelerated death benefits are complex and benefits may be taxable in certain circumstances. Receipt of benefits may affect eligibility for public assistance programs such as Medicaid. Accelerated benefits paid under the terms of the Terminal Illness Rider are subject up to a $100 processing fee. Clients should consult tax and legal advisors prior to initiating any claim. A licensed physician must certify that the insured is terminally ill to qualify for benefits. Other terms and conditions may apply. The rider may not cover all of the costs associated with terminal illness. The rider is a life insurance accelerated death benefit product, is generally not subject to health insurance requirements, and may not be available in all states. The rider form number for the Terminal Illness Rider is either ICC16 TB 146-2016 or TB 146-2016 and may be followed by a state code.

  • 3 We allow conversion to survivorship policies at the company's discretion – it may discontinue the practice at any time.

  • 4 The disability and unemployment benefit for PruTerm WorkLife65 is not convertible.

  • 5 This protection falls under the included Insured's Waiver of Premium Benefit (rider form number TB 102-2011 ). If you become disabled, you won't have to pay premiums until either your disability ends or you turn 65, whichever comes first. If you become unemployed after the first contract anniversary, but before age 65, we will waive one continuous year of premiums. You must remain unemployed for 60 days, receive state unemployment benefits, and have been continuously employed for the full year preceding the date unemployment began. The unemployment feature may be used only once.

  • 6 After the first year, your premiums increase annually to age 95. They are not guaranteed, but will not be more than those shown in your contract.

The Living Needs BenefitSM is an accelerated death benefit and is not a health, nursing home, or long-term care insurance benefit and is not designed to eliminate the need for insurance of these types. There is no charge for this rider but, when a claim is paid under this rider, the death benefit is reduced for early payment, and a $150 processing fee ($100 in Florida) is deducted. If more than one policy is used for the claim, each policy will have a processing fee of up to $150 deducted ($100 in Florida). Portions of the Living Needs Benefit payment may be taxable, and receiving an accelerated death benefit may affect eligibility for public assistance programs. The federal income tax treatment of payments made under this rider depends upon whether the insured is considered "terminally ill" or "chronically ill" and, if the policy is business related, whether the insured is receiving the benefits. We suggest the policyowner seek assistance from a personal tax advisor regarding the implications of receiving Living Needs Benefit payments. This rider is not available in Minnesota to new purchasers over age 65 until the policy has been in force for one year, and the nursing home option is not available in Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts, New York or the District of Columbia. This rider is not available in Washington state.

In Oregon, term policies must include the waiver of premium benefit to be eligible for this rider. The form numbers for the Living Needs Benefit are ORD 87241 and ORD 87335; there may be state variations.
