Life Insurance

Life insurance should be a part of your overall financial plan, but how much do you need and what policy is right for you? We can help.

The primary purpose of life insurance is to provide capital to your dependents after you die. The money is an important financial resource. It can help cover funeral costs, pay the mortgage, provide funds to run the household and ensure that your dependents aren’t burdened with debt.

Erie Family Life’s line of competitive life insurance products* can provide financial security for you and your family. Our agency can help you every step of the way.

Types of Life Insurance

There are two basic types of life insurance:  temporary and permanent.

  • Temporary needs include home mortgages, short-term debt reduction,
    family income and educational expenses that can last from as little as one year
    to 30 years.


    Term insurance provides affordable coverage for a specified number
    of years. It is the most cost-effective way to cover costs for loved ones left
    behind. There are a variety of plans ranging from an annual renewable term (1-year
    plan) to a level term plan that could last 10, 15, 20 or 30 years.



  • Permanent needs include those that last for your entire life, or
    potentially for periods of 15 years or more. Unlike term, permanent life insurance
    builds a cash value that increases the longer the policy is in force. Permanent
    needs may include final expenses and funds to cover estate taxes and retirement
    savings protection.




    Whole life and universal life plans are ideally suited for meeting these goals. With permanent
    life insurance policy from Erie Family Life, you’ll have guaranteed protection for
    your entire life.

The proper coverage can make all the difference when it comes to the loved ones you leave
behind. We will help you every step of the way.
