How paid full insurance works [!19659004] Paid full insurance means that you no longer have to pay premiums on the insurance. The death benefit will remain in effect. In addition, the insurance will normally continue to earn dividends if it is a dividend that pays the entire life policy.
Reaching paid status gives peace of mind knowing that you can keep your life insurance and not have to pay any future premiums.
You can continue to take out a loan against a paid help policy. You can also withdraw all non-guaranteed cash values from a paid policy. Your paid full life policy will also continue to enjoy all the tax benefits available to the entire life policy that have not achieved payment status. <! – ->
Reached status [!19659004] The entire life span has a premium payment period. This is the number of years that the insurance owner must pay premiums before he gets paid . The entire life policy will specify this period in the agreement and the insurance company cannot change this period after the issuance of the insurance. When the insurance owner pays premiums for the entire number of years specified in the agreement, the insurance is paid and does not require any additional premiums to be in force.
Regular premium payment periods are:
- To 100 years of age
- ] To 120 years
- To 65 years
- 10 years
- 20 years
Longer premium payment periods have lower annual premiums for the same death amount. For example, you might be looking at a $ 1 million life policy that requires a premium of $ 15,000 per year if paid status occurs at age 100, but insurance with the same death benefit that reaches paid status after just 10 years may have an annual premium claim. at $ 45,000. <! – ->

The amount for the reduction of the death benefit depends on the age of the insurance and the amount of cash repurchase value that it currently has.
Can I withdraw a paid policy?

If you do this, the insurance company will send you a check for the cash value of the entire life insurance on the day you requested the insurance. You may want to think twice before earning such a policy, as this decision is permanent and the policy paid does not require any future premiums.
Will my payment policy pay the same death benefit my unpaid policy?
Assuming the death benefit payable is the same, yes your beneficiary will receive the death benefit from a paid policy just as he / she would receive a death benefit from an unpaid insurance policy. Achieving paid status does not change the way the insurance company handles a claim / pays a death benefit.
