A life insurance pays a contractually agreed sum to the beneficiaries in the event of the insured person’s death. There are two types of whole life insurance: whole life insurance with a constant sum insured and with a decreasing sum insured.

Constant sum insured:

  • Advantage: premium remains the same throughout the duration of the contract
  • Disadvantage: no savings due to reduced premiums towards the end of the contract period

Decreasing sum insured:

  • Advantage: premium reflects the risk covered
  • Disadvantage: high premiums/costs at the beginning of the insurance period


  • Residential property: If the family owns a house, there could be financial problems when the main earner passes away.
  • Protecting the family: In the event of death, the family receives the agreed sum insured.
  • Protecting the cohabiting partner: Social security benefits are generally only paid out to married couples.
  • Self-employed individuals: life insurance makes sure that the business is safe and can be continued if one of the proprietors passes away.
