Help Provide Financial Protection for Your Future With Life Insurance

Protection for What Matters Most

Life Insurance

Life insurance is an essential part of a complete financial plan. Whether you need the temporary protection of term, or a more permanent solution like universal life, your independent life insurance professional appointed with Columbus Life can help you make the right choice. The type of life insurance you should choose depends on your life stage, where you are in your life, how long you will need coverage and whether you want the opportunity to build money inside your life insurance policy — called cash value. Life insurance also includes specialized riders that may be combined with your policy to help provide benefits while you are still living, and protection for your estate when you die.

Universal Life Insurance

Universal life insurance can offer the best of two worlds — a fixed amount of coverage with a tax-deferred, cash accumulation account based on current interest rates. Indexed universal life, a specific type of universal life insurance, builds cash value inside your policy through indexed interest credits, and can provide protection from downside market index risk through a minimum interest rate guarantee1.

Indexed Explorer Plus® Flexible Premium Universal Life Insurance

Indexed Explorer Plus Indexed Universal Life Insurance can provide life insurance protection for the future and help build cash value to use during your lifetime.

Voyager Universal Life® Insurance

Voyager Universal Life from Columbus Life includes a lifetime no-lapse guarantee that ensures your life insurance protection, as long as the premiums are paid.

Explorer Plus® Universal Life Insurance

Explorer Plus Universal Life Insurance helps protect those you care about while building potential income for yourself with a no-lapse guarantee option to give you flexibility.

Expedition SIULTM Survivorship Indexed Universal Life Insurance

Expedition SIUL™ provides coverage for two people with cash value accumulation potential, downside protection from market fluctuation and a flexible design that can be customized for wealth transfer and business planning needs.

Indexed Universal Life: When Flexibility and Growth Potential Matter

Term Life Insurance

There may be times when you need financial protection for only a limited time. Term life insurance can provide maximum protection and costs less than a permanent plan of insurance. Term life insurance can also be converted to a more permanent life insurance plan at a later time up to age 70 or when the term ends .

Nautical Term Life Insurance provides full life insurance coverage for a specific time period. Policies available with terms of 10, 15, 20 or 30 years.


The Life Plus Accelerated Death Benefit Rider gives you the flexibility to access part of your policy's death benefit while you're still living. This money can then be used to help pay medical bills, mortgage and home maintenance costs, or even the trip of a lifetime.
