A typical policy can either be I effect for a specific time period or it can be fixed for the duration of your lifetime. Term insurance comes in “terms” of 25 years and well suited for a mortgage or financial safety net for surviving beneficiaries. Keep in mind that if you survive longer than the policy term, there won’t be a payout.

A nice plus is that the premiums will often reduce over time as equity builds while you continue paying, which is not the case with term life insurance.
