What types of insurance are there?

There are two main kinds of life insurance: term insurance - which is pure insurance, without an investing component - and cash-value insurance, or what salespeople like to call "permanent insurance." Cash-value insurance - such as whole life, universal life and variable life - is basically just a term insurance policy with an investment component stitched on. The investment component is known as the cash value.
