Life Insurance in Iowa

Insuring Iowans Across the State

Performance Insurance is proud to offer Life Insurance to both individuals and businesses. Our preference is to sell pure life insurance, which is another word for term. This is as basic, simple and understandable as life insurance gets; the premium represents only the cost of the insurance.

Term Life Insurance  Universal Life Insurance  How Do I Purchase Life Insurance?

Term Life Insurance

As previously mentioned, Term Life Insurance is the simplest form of insurance. It is also the least expensive. This makes term life ideal if you need insurance coverage for a specific amount of time and have a limited budget. Term life is frequently offered by employers as part of an employee benefits package (often at a multiple of annual salary, such as 1x, 1.5x, 2x), but the amount of coverage may not be adequate to cover a family's future needs.

Universal Life Insurance

Universal Life Insurance is a type of permanent policy that provides a high degree of flexibility in premiums and income options. It also builds a cash value over time.

  • Accumulates a cash value which can be accessed
  • Permanent; does not expire like Term Life Insurance
  • Flexible payment options and payouts
  • Can be used to transfer wealth to loved ones
