Life insurance protects your financial future and provides the resources your family or business may need to pay immediate and continuing expenses when you die. However, choosing a life insurance product can be complicated.

ACLI has prepared this guide to help you understand the types of life insurance and know what questions to ask when you're buying life insurance. You'll be in a better position to make a selection best suited to your financial needs and those of your family.
