SBLI's Term Life Insurance is reasonably straightforward. You choose how much protection you want and how long you want it. SBLI offers lower premiums, so it's an excellent option for those on a budget, and you can choose term lengths from 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30-years.
Term Life Insurance savings can help with death expenses, mortgage expenses, college tuition, and more. SBLI offers three kinds of Term Life insurance: Guaranteed Level Premium Term Life Insurance, One Year Non-Renewable Term Life insurance, and Yearly Renewable Term Life insurance.

SBLI's Whole Life insurance is perfect for people who want 100% guaranteed life protection. Anyone ages 15-days to 80-years qualifies for Whole Life insurance. All Whole Life policies last until age 121 and offer tax-free cash value accumulation. Coverage ranges from $25,000 to $30 million, and premiums remain stable.
Listed below are some reasons why you might want to consider SBLI Whole Life Insurance:
*Coverage is guaranteed never to expire if premiums and loan interest are paid on time
There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to insurance policies. That's why SBLI offers a variety of life insurance riders.
You can choose from the following life insurance riders:
Keep in mind that not all riders are available for all products and there will be certain conditions that need to be met. Additionally, an Accelerated Death Benefit Rider is included automatically at no cost to you; however, additional riders require additional costs.
In addition to its term and whole life insurance, SBLI has its Cherish Life final expense insurance (which may also be referred to as burial insurance). This coverage is helpful as it helps your loved ones pay for things like outstanding medical bills, credit card debt, or funeral costs. Coverage amounts are anywhere from $2,000 to $35,000 — a decent amount for this type of policy.
All SBLI clients have access to a LegacyShield subscription at no cost. This platform allows you to store all your essential documents, consolidate your financial accounts on one convenient dashboard, and create documents for your estate plan (i.e., your will, power of attorney, HIPAA authorization, and advance directives).
When it comes to end-of-life planning, it can be overwhelming to conglomerate all your accounts and important documents. We appreciate SBLI offering LegacyShield to all its clients for free.
It's not uncommon not to know how much life insurance coverage you'll need. To help put you in the right ballpark, we recommend checking out SBLI's Life Insurance Calculator. This is a valuable tool and can help you determine how much coverage you'll need and for how long.
All you need to do is enter your age, annual income, savings and investments, spouse/partner status, number of children, income replacement, mortgage debt (if you have any), other debt obligations, and whether you have an existing life insurance policy.
Once you input all this information, SBLI will suggest a coverage amount and term length.
This is not unusual for the industry, but smokers can expect their rates to be much higher than those who don't smoke.
SBLI does allow you to enter in some personal information and get an estimate for your policy. However, this is just an estimate and to get more detailed information on your policy, rates, etc., you'll need to speak with an agent.
Working with an agent is not uncommon, but more and more companies allow consumers to purchase coverage entirely online.
