What is Permanent Individual Life Insurance?

In addition, the amounts of most individual life insurance policies are considered entirely within the framework that allows you to pay insurance premiums or withdraw or borrow money against the policy once you have accumulated enough funds for this, and comprehensive life insurance premiums are usually much higher than temporary life insurance premiums.

If someone buys a full life insurance policy with an annual premium of EGP 5,000, it means that they will pay an annual premium of EGP 5,000 for the remainder of their life.

Keep in mind that life insurance policies for individuals have certain restrictions such as suicide clauses and other restrictions, but ultimately this insurance policy dictates that your insurance premiums will eventually return to their beneficiaries for compensation in case of death.
