Texas Life Insurance Policy Types

You have a choice of 3 varieties of life insurance policies which can be found in Texas. These choices include:

  • Term Life Insurance
  • Whole Life Insurance
  • Universal Life Insurance

One common feature you find with both the Term and Universal Life insurance policies is that you can get the policies for different terms of time such as anywhere from 5, 15, or 25 years for example.

Term life and Whole life insurance policies are pretty straightforward and the policy exists in one format for the life of the policy. Universal Life insurance, on the other hand gives you more latitude in how you set up the policy to suit your individual needs.

If, for example, you decided to structure your Universal Life policy with your full life span in mind, you have the option of either paying a set premium which offers you a guaranteed death benefit, or opting to design your policy benefits based on the growth of the cash value accumulation instead of the guaranteed benefits.

How to Apply

It’s real easy to do because you can apply right over the phone or request an insurance agency to send you an application.  The majority of life insurance policies do require you to take a short medical exam, but this will be at their expense, not yours.

The one thing you have to remember thought that if you are a Texas resident, or applying for a policy as a non-resident, then you, the owner of the policy, will have to sign the application in person.

If you on business or just visiting Texas form Alabama and you decide you want to apply for a life insurance policy in Texas, then you will have to use the Texas application forms.

Getting Started

We would advise you to get at least several quotes from at least 2 separate agencies before you submit a application to an agent. The reason is that some life insurance agents only represent certain life insurance companies or even only a single company which limits your choices. Shopping around is the best way to get most choices and the best deal.

We suggest you use an independent agent in Texas who can give you a full health assessment and help you choose from a variety of life insurance carriers.

We are one of these independent agencies, licensed with over 30 life insurance companies, so when you come to us for help, you’ll know the quotes we provide you are the absolute lowest prices available.  For more information or to get started with an application for Texas life insurance, sign up for some quotes using our instant quote form on the right or call us at 877-996-9383.
