Permanent life insurance protection is important for two reasons: 1) Your health may change in later years, which may prevent you from purchasing more life insurance or prevent you from renewing level term insurance after the guaranteed period is over; and 2) your child with disabilities may need a guaranteed source of money when he or she gets older and you are no longer alive.

 

If your health status has changed since you first purchased your term life insurance policy (or policies), and buying additional permanent insurance is prohibitive (either due to costs or insurability risk), you may be able to convert a portion of your present term life insurance policy to a permanent life insurance policy. You should check with your insurance agent and/or your life insurance company, to determine what conversion options are available to you.
