Whole life insurance, sometimes called permanent life insurance, provides coverage for your entire lifetime. That means your family and beneficiaries are covered for the duration of your life.
Whole life insurance accumulates cash value, too, providing you the option of borrowing against it.1 It’s a financially smart way to help protect yourself and your loved ones. You can even buy a separate policy for children, so they have coverage for their entire lives.
A whole life policy from Erie Family Life2 offers you some important features, such as:

Future insurability: No matter what may happen with their health in the future, your children will always keep this protection.1
Cash later: It builds cash value they can borrow in the future.4
Affordable rates: Generally, the younger the child, the lower the premium and the sooner it starts growing in value.
Time to convert: from term to whole life, or blend the two for both affordability and lifetime coverage.
Final expenses: Can be used to cover funeral costs, estate fees, unpaid debt, etc.
Sandwich Generation: Caring for elderly parents and teen or college-aged children at the same time increases the need for financial protection.
