Term life insurance

Term life insurance from Equitable Life provides temporary, flexible and affordable protection for you, your family and/or your business.

How it works

Unlike permanent insurance which lasts a lifetime, Term life insurance typically provides coverage which expires at a specific age or year.  Premiums are guaranteed for a given period of time, usually 10, 20 or 30 years, depending on the plan selected. At the end of that period, the policy either renews at a higher premium for the next payment period or it terminates. Most term plans can be switched to permanent protection1 to cover your long term needs.

Choose the right plan for you

Equitable Life has a variety of plans to meet your unique needs and financial obligations, including:

  • 10 year Term offers coverage at the lowest initial cost with premiums renewing every 10 years to age 85.
  • 20 year Term is affordable coverage for a longer initial premium payment period with premiums renewing every 20 years to age 85.
  • Term 30/65 offers the lowest overall cost for 30 years of coverage.  Premiums are payable to the later of 30 years or age 65, with no premium increases.

Customizing a plan just for you
