Term Life Insurance
A life insurance policy that provides coverage only for a certain period of time. A term life insurance policy provides a benefit upon the death of the policyholder, but ceases to provide this benefit if he/she is still alive when the policy expires. Upon expiration, the policyholder may decide to renew the policy or let it lapse. If the policy lapses, the policyholder is not reimbursed for the premiums paid over the life of the policy. A term life insurance policy does not include some of the other benefits of a whole life policy, such as a savings component.
