When purchasing life insurance one has a choice, depending on one's needs. Two of these are term life or universal life. The amount of a premium depends on the purchaser's age and the face value of the policy. The older a person is, the higher the premium will be.
Some people purchase term life insurance because the premiums are less. However, this insurance just goes for a certain length of time (term) and then must be re-negotiated regarding premiums and coverage. Naturally, when a person taking out insurance is older the premiums can be a great deal higher.
Monthly premiums are invested when one has universal life insurance. With this policy, when the value of the amount invested reaches the face value of the policy premiums are no longer paid. Premiums are higher on this type of policy but eventually one can stop paying them.
