A 20 year term life insurance policy is a life insurance policy that lasts for 20 years. Term policies offer level premiums, which means you will lock in your premiums for 20 years once you qualify and are approved for the policy.
You have a few different options when choosing a 20 year term policy.

Should I get a 30 or 20 year term life insurance policy?
20 year vs 30 year
That is a difficult question that only you can answer. What you need to look at is your budget and determine whether a 20 year or 30 year policy is right for you. A 30 year policy will cost more than a 20 year policy, especially as you get older. We think you should lock in a term policy for as long as your budget allows, especially while you are young and healthy because you never know what life has in store. Take a look at the quote for a 35 year old male, below. If you lock in a rate when you are young, the price difference is not that much, but the longer you wait, the larger the gap in price. This gap in price would be significantly more if you ran quotes for a 50 year old.
