If the economy turns for the worst premiums could be increased where as if the economy is good premiums could decrease.Variable Life Insurance- this form is one of the most popular. It gives the policy holder the most control on where they want their funds invested and at what risk. The other added benefit to this form is that if the holder receives a higher return, beneficiaries would receive the amount at face value, in addition to the extra return. |
