ABSTRACT
An editorial is presented providing advice about term life insurance in comparison to permanent insurance. Term life insurance is temporary, which does not cover needs that extend past life expectancy or life as with permanent insurance. Consumers should consider term life insurance if they have inadequate cash flow, switching to permanent insurance later. Some life insurance policies have time limits for the conversion from term to permanent policies.
