New Jersey Life Insurance Resources
Survivorship life insurance insures two people, usually a husband and wife, and provides a death benefit to the beneficiaries at the death of the second insured. These plans are primarily designed to provide cash for estate taxes or for business costs that must to be paid after both insureds have died.
Survivorship insurance contracts can be structured as ordinary life, graded premium life, or universal life policies. An important advantage of a survivorship contract is that its coverage costs less than the premiums for two separate policies with an total amount equal to the survivorship policy’s death benefit. More liberal underwriting means the policy can be written even if one party has significant health issues. .
Clearly, New Jersey Term and Universal Life Insurance has many uses. Its main use for families is to protect dependents from the financial burden of the early death of a breadwinner. About seventy percent of American adults have some form of life insurance.
Without a breadwinner, a family may not be able to meet mortgage payments, provide for college, or prepare for retirement. Moreover, families with young children often have the greatest need for life insurance. If both spouses work outside the home the loss of even one income may cause the family tremendous financial hardship.
