Life Insurance Products
Banner sells term life policies usually for a period of 10, 15, 20 or 30 years. It should be noted that coverage for term life products ceases upon expiry of the policy. The premiums however remain constant for the entire length of the term and can be renewed upon expiry at higher rates. Another benefit is that these policies can be converted to universal life policies within the first 20 years of the policy or before the 70th birthday of the investor. Some of the term life policies being offered to consumers are Op Term 10, Op Term 15, Op Term 20, Op Term 25, Op Term 30, Life Value Term 20 and Life Value Term 30.
Universal life policies provide people with a more permanent plan and is expected to last for life as long as payments are made regularly. With this type of policy, the investor can either pay higher premiums for life time coverage or lower premiums with shorter coverage guarantees. Short Pay Guarantees is a feature unique to Banner Life where the investor gets to choose the number of years he would like to keep paying premiums in return for a lifetime of coverage. This enables the investor to make higher premium payments for a period of 10 or 15 years in exchange for lifetime coverage without additional payments.
Banner Life is also popular for providing one of the most competitive diabetic insurance policies. With 8 per cent of the American population being diagnosed with diabetes, the need for a comprehensive diabetic insurance is crucial. Add to that the fact 2 million new cases of diabetes being registered each year in the US alone reinforces the benefits of purchasing a diabetic insurance policy from Banner.
