Insuranceopedia Explains Life Insurance Contract

Typically, in order to agree to a life insurance contract, life insurance companies must have the promise of the policyholder to pay a certain amount of money in the form of premium payments. In most cases, the higher a person wants their life insurance benefit to be, the more they will have to pay in premiums. Life insurance payouts can often be quite substantial.
