Universal Life:

This policy is the same as a traditional policy, yet it has features that make it a valuable financial tool. Here are some of the benefits of an universal life insurance policy:

Non-taxable death benefits-fewer taxes mean more benefits go to your beneficiaries.
Direct payment of benefits-in order to bypass probate taxes, you can arrange for benefits to be paid directly to your beneficiaries.
Tax-deferred growth-part of your premium payment will be applied to the value of the policy. This amount will earn interest that will accumulate on a tax-deferred basis.
Flexible premiums-you can adjust your premium payment amount to fit your needs.
Adjustable death benefit-death benefit may be adjusted without having to purchase a new policy.
Group Term Life:

This policy offers death benefits for a specified amount of time with a guaranteed premium amount. Here are some additional benefits of a group term life insurance policy:

Time specific to meet your needs-you can purchase additional protection for your family with a term life policy that lasts 10, 15, 20 or even 30 years.
Competative premiums-guaranteed premium rates affordable high limit coverage.
Guaranteed acceptance- for employees and their families.
