Variable whole life insurance

Variable whole life insurance is insurance with an investment element, in which a fixed amount of the insurance premium is invested in stocks or bonds by the insurance company, and the surrender value received by the policyholder increases or decreases depending on the investment results.

There are three types of variable life insurance: whole life, fixed term, and annuity.
