Life Insurance

Life insurance is essential for different reasons. At Avanti Insurance Services, we suggest getting life insurance to protect your loved ones if anything happened to you. Here's what you need to know about life insurance coverage for Colorado residents.

As your needs change, so should your life insurance policy. Primary types of life insurance are:

  • Term life
  • Whole life
  • Universal life
  • Final Expense

The simplest and least expensive type of life insurance is term life insurance. In the event of your death, the beneficiary will receive your assets. Term life insurance allows your family to continue paying the bills and other expenses.

Whole life insurance, unlike term life insurance, build cash value. This cash value builds over time. If a whole life insurance policy is surrendered, the policy owner receives the amount of the accumulated funds. These insurance policies have a fixed premium. These premiums can only increase if the policyholder maintains an active insurance policy.

Universal life insurance is another type of life insurance policy that is available. This type of life insurance gives policy owners more control over their premiums. Universal life insurance is more flexible than other insurance options. This type of insurance provides the beneficiary of the policy a death benefit and provides permanent protection for the dependents on the policy.

Final Expense insurance is a small whole life insurance policy that usually has minimal if any underwriting and is very easy to qualify for.  The beneficiaries of a final expense life insurance policy can use the death benefit for any purpose.  The death benefit is usually between $5,000 to $50,000.


An Annuity is a financial product that pays out a fixed stream of payments and are primarily used as an income stream for retirees.  Annuities can be structured to give flexibility and, for those with a tax-deferred status, gives control over when taxes are paid by deferring taxes until withdrawal.


Guaranteed rates on a Fixed Annuity means you know what your rate of return will be for a given period of time.  For retirees, this may be a better alternative than putting money into the stock market.
