You may want to contact your life insurance agent or if you don't have one, your life insurance company directly and they will assign you an agent.
Usually a conversion of a term policy into a permanent policy is nothing more than filling out a single page to make the requested change to your life insurance coverage.
For a lot of people this is a great deal because you no longer have to prove your health to remain insured after your term expires on your term life insurance policy. So, if your health is bad, conversion to a permanent life insurance policy may be a good idea.
Your term life insurance policy should have a clause that outlines the details of your Conversion Process.
If you purchased the life insurance policy through an agent, contact them and let them know you want to convert your term coverage into a permanent policy. They will then tell you if your life insurance policy is convertible, and if so what that conversion will buy for you in a whole life insurance policy.
You should be aware that your life insurance coverage amount will be much lower, and if you want to keep the face value amount of life insurance, that your premiums will become much more expensive.
Whole life insurance policies are more expensive than term life policies are because of their cash accumulation feature, and the higher risk to the insurer - they don't have to pay out a death benefit on many term life policies, but have to pay out on nearly every whole life one.
Decide where your budget allows, and what minimum life insurance coverage amount you want to keep.
