Be careful about paying for term life insurance after the initial term of the policy ends.

Term after the term

Be careful about paying for term life insurance after the initial term of the policy ends. A 20 year term life policy typically has a 20 year guaranteed cost. The cost of the policy starts going up every year after the initial term period, starting gradually. After a few years the yearly cost increase is not gradual.

All life insurance plans should be reviewed every few years to determine appropriateness. Also Your needs may have changed.
