Why Choose Term Life Insurance?
Term life insurance is the most basic type of life insurance available. It pays out a specified amount (death benefit) to your spouse, children or estate (beneficiaries). The insurance company pays the death benefit either as a non-taxable lump sum or as an annuity over several years.
Term policies come in several types, but the most popular is “level term.” Simply put, it means that your premiums will not increase over the life of the policy.
The other 2 types of term insurance available are known as “decreasing term” and “increasing term” life insurance.
Decreasing term insurance means that your death benefits will decrease at certain times throughout the policy. It can be used to cover your mortgage or to reflect the decreasing need of an expensive policy as you age. This is a good option to cover your mortgage or the kid’s college tuition as they reach that age.
An increasing term life insurance is a smart option for a young family starting out on a limited budget. People tend to earn more and also incur more expenses as they age. This means they will need more coverage as they progress towards middle age. An increasing term policy will see both death benefits and premiums increase at designated time intervals. We would typically not recommend this for 46 year olds. It’s a product more suited to people in their 20’s or 30’s.
Riders on Life Insurance for 46 Year Olds
You might also want to learn more about life insurance riders such as a “Return of Premium” rider which guarantees to return all the premiums you have paid into the policy should you survive to the end of the policy period.
People who take advantage of the return of premium rider tend to do so because they want that chunk of change back at the end of their term life policy 20 to 30 years down the road.
Saving Money on Term Life Insurance at 46
The first step to saving money on your term life insurance is to figure out exactly how much insurance you need. Being under-insured can cause problems for your surviving family. Having too much insurance runs the risk of paying an unnecessary amount each month for something you might not use. Use our life insurance needs calculator to figure out how much you family has to insure.
The primary perk of using an independent agent is you get someone who will shop the market for you. Rather than spend the time to call a dozen different places, give a bunch of strangers your personal information, and get probably conflicting advice, you can talk to one person who can find the top 3 or 5 companies that may be a good fit for you and compare them for you impartially.
Great independent agents will go back and shop the market for you a second time if the first company you apply with comes back with a cost that seems too high based on experience. (We have done this for clients around the country since 2009.)

Permanent Life Insurance for 46 Year Olds
Although term life insurance is suitable for many families it might not be the best life insurance for your unique situation.
The other life insurance option is “Permanent Life Insurance” policy. This type of life insurance includes other life insurance policies such as Universal Life, Indexed Universal Life, or Whole Life.
The difference between the two types of life insurance is that a permanent insurance policy provides not just death benefits, it also has a cash value accumulation feature which grows through the life of the policy. Permanent insurance protects your money from taxes, but you can also use to maximize your 401(k).

No Exam Life Insurance for 46 Year Olds
There are plenty of life insurance companies which now provide the added convenience of No Exam Life Insurance. You might be approved in as little as a couple of days or you can get a policy as quick as 15 minutes. If you hate needles and want a policy in a hurry then this might be the route to go.
The catch is that the company which offers no exam policies isn’t usually the absolute lowest price. The good news is their price range is just about dead average compared to similar products in other companies. They only offer it on policies of $500,000 or less and the person who the insurance covers must be under 60 years of age.
Finding Reasonable Life Insurance for 46 Year Olds
Over 850 companies in the United States offer life insurance. Every company will offer different rates based on age, biological sex, health, and amount of coverage. So you always have options. Like we mentioned earlier, instead of looking at all of these companies yourself, an independent agent will shop them for you. You save yourself time by getting the best few options impartially presented to you without any work.
If you take nothing else away from this, remember that an independent agent is the fastest way to find the strongest coverage at the most affordable rates for your family.
