Term life insurance is a type of life insurance.
Disability insurance is not life insurance, it is completely different and is not provided by term life insurance coverage.
A form of insurance that pays your premiums for death and disability is mortgage payment protection insurance.
However, there may be a clause inside the life insurance policy called the "Disability Clause" that provides certain benefits will be paid in the event the insured becomes totally and permanently disabled from an accident incurred or sickness contacted.
In addition, there may be a provision for "Waiver of Premium" in the life insurance policy, which is an action by an insurance company canceling premium payments by an insured who has been disabled for at least six months. The life insurance policy remains in force, just as if the insured was still making premium payments.
But term life insurance is not disability coverage, it is pure life insurance protection.
Term life provides life insurance for a set period of time, usually 10, 15, 20 or 30 years.
If you die during the term, your death benefit is paid out to the beneficiary you chose when you bought tour policy.
If you outlive the term of your term life policy, your life insurance expires.
Term life insurance is the lowest priced life insurance and does not build cash value inside your policy, it is only life insurance, not an investment.
