- Any needs after the time of death, such as final illness expenses, burial costs and estate taxes.
- Funds for a readjustment period, to finance a move, or to provide time for family members to find a job.
- Ongoing financial needs, such as monthly bills and expenses, daycare costs, college tuition or retirement.

How much Pension insurance do I need?
There's no doubt that Pension insurance provides a sense of financial security. "If all else fails," you think, "at least I'm covered." But determining the amount of Pension insurance you need depends on a number of variables: your marital status, current income, (projected) future income, number of dependents, value of your assets, and your preferred lifestyle in general.
A common rule of thumb is that your Pension insurance benefit should equal 5-10 times your current income. But there's no one answer: if you're older, and your mortgage is paid off, you may not need as much Pension insurance as a new homeowner. On the other hand, if you're single and have no children, you may not need a policy in addition to the one available at your job.
Keep in mind that until that Pension insurance benefit is paid out, you are paying a monthly premium. That's why it's important to research your options and talk to an insurance agent who can help you determine the best policy options for your situation. ours offers a wide variety of term and permanent Pension insurance coverage, with a range of premium levels to choose from.
What kind of Pension Insurance do I need?
In a nutshell, Pension insurance comes in two flavors: Term and Permanent. ours offers several options for both types of Pension insurance coverage.
Term Pension Insurance
Term Pension insurance provides the greatest amount of coverage for the lowest initial cost so it is a good choice if your needs are temporary or your funds are limited. Since term insurance provides coverage for a specific period of time (the "term"), you will have to choose the number of years you will need coverage. The Company pays a death benefit only if you die during that term. Some term insurance policies can be renewed at the end of the term. Premium rates may increase at each renewal date. Term insurance is useful as coverage for responsibilities that will diminish or end over time, such as mortgages or car loans. ours offers several Term Pension Insurance options to choose from.
Permanent Pension Insurance
Permanent Pension insurance coverage is useful when you anticipate a long-term need and value the option of income-tax-favored accumulation for future needs. The accumulated value can be borrowed against and, in some cases, withdrawn to help meet future goals. (Of course, accessing your accumulated value may reduce your death benefit). As long as you pay the necessary premiums, there is no time limit (or term) restriction on the availability of your death benefit.
