20-Year Level Term Life Insurance provides affordable, temporary life insurance protection. The premium payment is guaranteed to stay level for the first 20 years. It will not increase or decrease during this time.
Like all term life insurance policies, 20-Year Level Term Insurance offers pure insurance protection and may be ideal when you need life insurance to protect your family or your business but dollars are scarce. It does not build cash value like a permanent or whole life policy, and it is not eligible for dividends.
20-Year Level Term Life Insurance means
- Life insurance protection that may be an ideal way to provide a substantial amount of coverage for an extended period of time.
- Guaranteed level premiums for the first 20 years.
- A guaranteed death benefit, generally free from federal income tax.
- An Original Age Term Conversion privilege available to the tenth policy anniversary.
- An Attained Age Term Conversion privilege available until age 30 or the 10th policy anniversary, whichever is later.

20-Year Term Life Insurance in Action“We had always meant to buy life insurance, but just never got around to it. When we finally did, we knew we had done the right thing, but figured it would be a long time before we needed it. Then Jim died. Without the term insurance our daughter would not be attending college or would at least have huge student loans to pay off. Now she can start her adult life debt-free.” — Fran Schneider, Valley Forge, PA *This is a hypothetical example
