Whole Life Insurance offers lifetime protection along with guaranteed features such as level premium, level death benefit, and cash surrender value. Generally speaking, Whole Life Insurance products can be classified as "Participating" and "Non-participating".
"Participating" means the policy participates in the insurance company's profit in the form of dividends (vested) which when credited to the policy at the end of the policy year enables the cash value to grow and increases the death benefit. This type of policy is considered by most as the top-of-the-line life insurance product.
"Non-participating" means the policy does not participate in the company's profit. However, it offers most of the features of a Whole Life Insurance.
