What you may not know is how simple it can be to purchase life insurance coverage. Then, should the unexpected happen, the financial resources your family needs will be there.

Here is some basic information about the types of life insurance plans your PFG agent offers:

Term Life Insurance pays a death benefit if the insured person dies within the term of the policy. Plans may be “simplified issue” or “fully underwritten”. Simplified issue means that you don’t have to get a physical or have lab work done to apply for coverage. Your answers to a few health questions determine your eligibility. Fully underwritten plans require the completion of a physical and lab work before coverage may be issued. By going through the underwriting process, including a medical exam, you can qualify for additional premium discounts for providing evidence of good health.
