What does whole life insurance mean?

Whole life insurance, as the name implies, is insurance which provides coverage for the policyholder's entire lifetime. Whole life policies can be divided into two categories: participating and non-participating. Both policies provide level premiums, lifetime protection and a guaranteed cash value-but participating whole life plans pay an annual dividend. The annual dividend is NOT guaranteed, and in most instances is linked to long-term interest rates as well as the insurance company's performance. If you have an existing participating whole life policy which was purchased in a high interest environment, it is a good idea to request an updated policy illustration-the projected values may have changed dramatically. Most participating whole life policies have multiple dividend options.
