TERM LIFE INSURANCE
Term life insurance is a cost-effective way of providing financial protection for your family for a specific period of time. It provides "pure" insurance protection but does not have the cash value feature typically found in permanent life insurance policies.
As your financial conditions change, you'll have the option of converting your term policy to permanent or return of premium insurance without furnishing any additional evidence of your insurability.*
* Subject to guidelines in each policy
We offer annually renewable term products as well as products that guarantee a level premium for 20 or 30 years!
RETURN OF PREMIUM LIFE INSURANCE
The 20- and 30-Year Return of Premium policies were created to give you life insurance, with a guaranteed level premium and the option to get a return of premium back at the end of the term period—tax free.
Our 20-Year Return of Premium policy is also available with simplified underwriting. Simplified underwriting requires answers to only four underwriting question with no routine medical exams, blood tests or physician statements required.
- Guaranteed level premiums
- Guaranteed level death benefit
Two options at the end of the term period:
* Return of premium (cash value) at the end of the 20th or 30th year is equal to 20 or 30 times the initial annual base policy premium, regardless of how premium is paid. Any additional premiums paid for riders, benefits, or ratings will not be returned at the end of the term period.
- Guaranteed return of premium option* or
- Reduced Paid Up Endowment to age 95 option with no additional premium required
PERMANENT LIFE INSURANCE
Permanent life insurance, unlike term life insurance, does not expire and combines a death benefit with a savings portion. This savings portion builds a cash value which you can borrow funds from, or in some instances, withdraw the cash value to help meet future goals. The two main types of permanent life insurance are whole life and universal life insurance policies.
Permanent life insurance policies enjoy favorable tax treatment, based on current tax laws. The growth of cash value is generally on a tax-deferred basis, meaning that you pay no taxes on any earnings in the policy, so long as the policy remains active.

A whole life insurance policy from Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance provides families the opportunity to accumulate cash on a tax-deferred basis.* This policy can earn dividends in addition to the policy's guaranteed cash values.** Meanwhile, the death benefit provided by the policy is guaranteed not to be less than the initial amount of insurance purchased.

FIND THE PROGRAM FOR YOU AND RETIRE COMFORTABLY
The cash generated by a whole life insurance policy (accumulated on a tax-deferred basis*) can be used to help provide additional funds in order for you to enjoy a comfortable retirement or it can be set-aside for special occasions or financial emergencies.
* Based on current tax laws
** Dividends are not guaranteed
Our Whole Life policy is also available with simplified underwriting. Simplified underwriting requires answers to only four underwriting question with no routine medical exams, blood tests or physician statements required.
SINGLE PREMIUM WHOLE LIFE
The Single Premium Whole Life policy is a wise and safe way to set aside a substantial amount of cash from an investment that has matured, an inheritance gift or the sale of a valuable asset. The policy requires only one premium payment that will provide life insurance and accumulate cash on a tax-deferred basis.*
CASH ACCESS, WITHOUT THE WAIT
In addition to a tax-free death benefit and tax-deferred financial growth*, an advantage of the Single Premium policy is that policyholders have access to their cash from the first day their policy is in force. Should an emergency arise, loans may be obtained against the cash value of the policy at a contractually guaranteed interest rate.
For example, a Single Premium policy with a one-time premium payment of $10,000 could accumulate enough cash to help pay for a child or grandchild to go to college (if the policy is issued at an early age). If maintained until age 65, it could then help provide the child with a comfortable retirement, too.**
* Based on current tax laws
** If this policy is a modified endowment contract (MEC), loans will be subject to income taxation. Distributions prior to age 59 ½ also are subject to a 10% IRS penalty. Please contact your tax advisor.
BENEFITS AND RIDERS
A benefit or rider is an attachment to an insurance policy that modifies the policy's coverage or terms. You may add benefits or riders to your existing policies or new policies purchased for added protection at a very reasonable cost.
GIVE THE GIFT OF SECURITY WITH A CHILD RIDER
Sure, it might not sound like the flashiest gift around, but life insurance is a gift children will never outgrow. It is a gift of security and the start of a solid financial future. Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance's Child Rider allows you to add life insurance protection for your children to your life insurance policy at a very reasonable cost.
Many people take life insurance for granted, but the reality is, not everyone qualifies for it. But you can change that—with a Child Rider from Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance, when your child reaches age 25, the face amount of the rider can then be converted* to a permanent life insurance policy of the child's own, without physical examination or proof of insurability. Which means you can lock in the future insurability of your child, today.
* The child must convert this policy on or within 30 days of their 25th birthday.
WAIVER OF PREMIUM
Though we hope it never does, an unexpected disability could prevent you from working and making payments on your bills. Our Waiver of Premium Rider is an inexpensive way to help insure that payments continue to be made on your life insurance if you become disabled for a period of six months or more.
For a small additional fee, our Waiver of Premium Rider is available on virtually every life insurance policy Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance offers. When certified as being totally disabled, we will waive all payments on your life insurance during the period of time you are disabled, without any penalty.
ACCELERATED DEATH BENEFIT FOR TERMINAL ILLNESS
Included at no additional premium charge with many of our life insurance policies, is the terminal illness accelerated benefit rider. In the unfortunate circumstance of being diagnosed with a terminal illness (defined as being diagnosed with a life expectancy of 12 months or less) your policy can provide access to the death benefit of up to $1,000,000, discounted at interest for one year. This rider provides a living benefit for a terminally ill client to make decisions based on their wishes and not be overly burdened with financial woes.
* Per current IRS regulations, benefit amounts may be taxable. See your tax advisor.
