Insurance Products from Assurity Life Insurance Company
Assurity Life understands that individuals and families have different needs and as such, the company has made certain that their life insurance products are sufficient to meet those needs.
Whether a prospective client needs temporary coverage to replace income when the worst thing happens or lifetime coverage that also builds cash value and can be accessed when needed, Assurity has a solution available in its insurance portfolio of products.
Term Life Insurance
A Term life insurance policy provides guaranteed life insurance benefits over a selected period of time. Assurity’s LifeScape Term policies are available for applicants age 18 to 74 and can be purchased for policy terms of 10, 15, 20, or 30 years.
These term life options offer ideal solutions for individuals who want affordable life insurance protection during times when the need outweighs the budget, such as marriage, a new home, or welcoming a child into the family.
Assurity’s LifeScape Term policy can easily be converted to permanent life insurance during the conversion period, which begins on the policy’s issue date and concludes one year prior to the end of the level term period for the 10-year plan, or two years prior to the end of the level term period for the 15-, 20-, and 30-year plans.
When converting to one of Assurity’s permanent policies, the policyholder will not be required to prove insurability which is a critical privilege if the policyholder has health issues.

Whole Life Insurance
The primary difference between whole life insurance and term insurance is that whole life provides coverage that lasts a lifetime, with a cash accumulation component that can be accessed for any reason via policy loans or withdrawals.
Assurity’s LifeScape Whole Life is available as a single premium whole life or fully underwritten whole life policy that can be paid monthly.
The fully underwritten whole life insurance policy from Assurity comes with guaranteed premiums, a guaranteed death benefit, and guaranteed cash value accumulation. The policyholder can also earn dividends from the company because LifeScape Whole Life is a participating policy,
Whole life insurance remains a popular choice for individuals and families because of three primary benefits:
- The insurance company cannot cancel the policy for any reason other than non-payment of premium.
- The periodic premium cannot be increased by the insurer for any reason.
- The policy cash value account will earn a minimum rate of interest that is stated in the policy contract.
Universal Life Insurance
Assurity’s Universal Life policy is permanent life insurance that offers flexible premium and death benefit options and costs much less than whole life insurance.
The Assurity universal life policy also comes with a five year no lapse coverage guarantee so that your policy will not lapse during that time (provided that you pay your premiums according to the schedule). The policy is available for applicants age 18 to 85 and the LifeScape Universal Life policy from Assurity pays a minimum guaranteed interest rate of 3%.
The policyholder can access the funds in the cash account for any reason by taking non-taxable policy loans or partial or total surrender for cash,
