This type of insurance offered by an employer or large-scale entity (i.e. association or labor organization) to its workers or members. Group life insurance is typically offered as a piece of a larger employer or membership benefit package.
This policy guarantees payment of a death benefit during a specified term. Once the term expires, the policyholder can either renew for another term, convert to permanent coverage, or allow the policy to terminate. Term life insurance policies provide a stated benefit upon the death of the insured, provided that the death occurs within a specific period.
