Life Insurance Riders
A life insurance rider, also known as an endorsement, is an addition to a life insurance policy that usually expands or limits the benefits payable under the contract. Life insurance riders allow you to have more flexibility and personalization in your life insurance policy.
Waiver of Premium Term Life Insurance
Most term and permanent life insurance policies offer an optional feature called "waiver of premium." This typically states that in the event you become totally disabled for a period of six months or longer, the insurance company will pay your life insurance premium until you are no longer disabled. This feature is optional (available at an extra cost) and must be chosen at the time of your life insurance application.
Return of Premium Term Life Insurance
Get a full refund of your money! Return of premium term life insurance (ROP) is a feature that offers a guaranteed refund of the life insurance premiums at the end of the term period, assuming the insured is still living.
