Universal Life Insurance is protection that offers payment flexibility and the ability to adjust the coverage amount over time. It offers low-cost protection like term life insurance and a savings element like whole life insurance. It can help your family financially with immediate cash for funeral expenses or can be used in other ways, such as business situations, to create a charitable gift, or to help generate an inheritance.
Universal life insurance is ideal for:
With a universal life insurance policy from Erie Family Life1, you get lots of features, such as:
The coverage can last your entire life and includes a policy cash value with the convenience of a payment schedule that you determine. You select the payment necessary to accomplish your goals.
Like whole life, the cash value of a universal life insurance can be borrowed against if you need it2. The cash value can also simply be withdrawn, avoiding interest expense charges (subject to policy limits). And, your cash value accumulates tax-deferred3 at competitive interest rates.
The death benefit that is paid to your beneficiaries can be adjusted higher or lower as defined in the policy without having to buy a new contract.5
Talking with a licensed ERIE agent can help you decide which type of life insurance is best to reach your financial goals. With universal life insurance coverage, you have several options and can leverage the money you have set aside for your heirs into a larger legacy. Get in touch with a local ERIE agent for more information.
