Universal Life Insurance

A flexible, permanent type of policy in which your insurer deposits your premium payments into an interest-bearing account, and it continues to grow. You may borrow against these funds if necessary, cash them in, invest them, or use their accumulated value to cover a payment if you ever need to.
