Secure Life

Whole Life Insurance Series

A smart insurance solution for your whole life

Whole Life policies provide a death benefit for your lifetime while also building cash value and earning dividends. Coverage ranges from $5,000 to $5 million.

  • Secure Basic Whole Life: Paying fixed premiums to age 100 makes this the most budget-friendly way to own whole life insurance. Or, opt to pay fixed premiums to age 65, during your working years, for a lifetime of coverage.

  • Secure 10-Pay or 20-Pay Life: Pay the premiums over a 10- or 20-year period, maximizing cash value growth and locking in long-term benefits.

  • Secure Cash Advantage Whole Life:  Accelerates cash value and dividend accumulation for retirement, education or other significant events.
  • Secure Single Premium Whole Life: Pay the policy’s entire premium upfront. This plan may be a good fit for charitable giving or special needs planning.

  • Secure Cash Advantage Single Premium Whole Life (SPWL): Pay a one-time premium for the entire policy. Built for those who are more concerned with higher cash value. In many cases, these have cash surrender values equal to the initial premium at the end of the first year.
