No frills life Insurance – Why to avoid it
th Jan 2017 |
No frills life insurance is often seen advertised on TV and made available online. While these policies may seem attractive based on their simplicity, but they offer no flexibility and you actually pay more for less.
Traditional term insurance on the other hand is cheaper, offers greater greater flexibility and provides important added features, at no extra cost.
