When it comes to protecting your family,
invest in Term Life Insurance

Term Life Insurance is the least expensive form of life insurance available. It provides 100% protection in the event of your death with no investment features to drive up the cost. It is called term because it protects your beneficiary(s) during a fixed number of years (typically the years you need life insurance the most).

LifeEssentials Level Term Individual Life is an underwritten product that enables you to select your term period, amount of coverage, and optional riders (available at an additional cost):

  • Available to individuals 18 - 64
  • Choose from initial term periods of 10, 15, 20, 25, or 30 years
  • Choose from coverage amounts of $25,000, $50,000, $75,000 or $100,000
  • Optional Waiver of Premium and Accidental Death riders available for purchase
  • 30-day Free-Look Period in which you may cancel the coverage and all premiums will be refunded

Protect yourself and your savings


If something were to happen to you – such as an accident or critical illness, do you have the protection you need for your health as well as your financial security?

Your health insurance works to pay for just that – your health. Unfortunately, out-of-pocket expenses and uncovered living costs can take a financial toll when you’re unable to work.

You may wish to consider one of these three affordable plans from USAble Life, which pay lump sum cash when you qualify with a covered incident:

  • Critical Illness coverage
  • Accident Insurance
  • Hospital Confinement coverage
