Whole Life Insurance

What is whole life insurance?

Whole life insurance is a type of permanent life insurance. Unlike a term life policy, which provides protection for a period of time, whole life insurance provides coverage for life. As long as premiums are paid, your loved ones are guaranteed2 to receive a death benefit. It also contains a growing cash value that’s available to help you cover unexpected costs.

With whole life insurance, your premiums remain the same throughout your lifetime. You should also expect to pay a higher premium than you would for a term life policy.

Transamerica does not provide online quotes for whole life insurance. You will need to contact an agent to get some pricing options.

Whole life insurance policies from Transamerica

Transamerica offers several types of whole life policies so you can decide which one best suits your needs. These policies include:

  • Individual whole life insurance
  • Group whole life insurance

Is whole life insurance taxable?

Death benefits paid from a whole life insurance policy are free from federal income tax. Although inheritances are generally subject to estate taxes, ownership of whole life insurance may be set up in a way to not pay estate tax as well as a great way to leave money to your beneficiaries that is free from federal income tax.

Does whole life insurance have cash value?

One of the features of whole life insurance is the tax-deferred cash value that builds up over time. The longer you have the policy and pay premiums, the more your cash value builds up. Your cash value may be accessed at any time as a loan3. This loan will need to be repaid in full to keep the full death benefit amount on your policy.
