More of a reason to buy rather than a product. This policy
protects a business which would suffer a loss in the event

no cash value feature.

but for those who you leave behind.
Life rates are based on may
factors: age and health status being the most important.

The best time to buy is when the
insured is young.
As we age, premiums increase -
if illness or disease occurs, affordable life insurance
may be unobtainable.
