The 2-minute Guide to Life Insurance

Why do people get life insurance?

There are a lot of reasons why someone might purchase life insurance. Most people first consider it when they have children. They want to know that even if they pass away, the people depending on them financially will be taken care of.

How does life insurance work?

A life insurance policy is an agreement between you (the “policyholder”) and the insurance company (the “insurance provider”), that says that if a specific person passes away (the “insured”), while the monthly payments (the “premiums”) are paid-up, they will make a lump sum payment (the “death benefit” also referred to as the “coverage amount”) to the person or persons of your choosing (the “beneficiary”).

What if I buy a policy today and pass away tomorrow – how much of the coverage amount will be paid?

100%. So long as the event leading to your mortality is covered by your policy, and the premiums are paid. End of story.

What kinds of insurance policies provide coverage for your life?

There are a number of types of insurance policies that provide a death benefit.

Accidental Death Insurance

When you’re 25 - 44 the single greatest risk to your life is accidental death[1]. This kind of insurance is built specifically for that. It tends to be affordable and, because it is guaranteed issue and the insurance provider doesn’t need to take your health into consideration, it can be purchased extremely quickly.

Fabric Instant is insurance for accidental death. Plans start at $6.00* per month. Covered in under 2 minutes.

*prices may vary by state

Term Life Insurance

Term life insurance provides a death benefit that covers both accidental death and death caused by illnesses. It is often medically underwritten and requires a physical exam. Term life insurance tends to get more expensive to purchase as you age.

Fabric Premium is a 20-year term life insurance policy that you can upgrade to from Fabric Instant. It replaces your Fabric Instant policy and covers you for death caused by accidents and illnesses.

Whole Life Insurance

Whole life insurance is a product that offers coverage for the entire life of the policyholder. Its premiums include a mix of insurance and investment components, the latter of which builds accumulated cash value that can be borrowed against or withdrawn before you pass away. Whole life insurance policies are more expensive and complex. Certain fees and expenses will reduce the cash value.

You may convert Fabric Premium to whole life insurance if you wish.

What does it cost?

Fabric Instant starts at $6/mo for $100,000 in coverage, $15/mo for $250,000 in coverage and $30/mo for $500,000 in coverage*.
