Peace of Mind for you and your Loved Ones

McKinneyOlson Insurance provides life insurance to individuals in Sioux Falls, Brandon, Tea, Harrisburg, Hartford, Dell Rapids, and surrounding areas.

Individual Life Insurance

Many individuals consider life insurance to be the cornerstone of a sound financial plan. And while no one likes to think about passing on, Life Insurance can relieve you of the financial worry your loved ones may face in the event of your passing. 

Your beneficiaries will be able to use your Life Insurance policy to help pay for anything from expensive funeral costs and estate taxes to making up for lost income or funding your child’s education. It can even be used to continue payments on your mortgage to help ensure that the family home stays in the family.

At McKinneyOlson Insurance, we know that choosing a Life Insurance plan is a big decision with many important factors to consider. Our knowledgeable team of insurance professionals is committed to walking you through the process and providing you with the best insurance solution to give you and your family the peace of mind you deserve. 

Types of Individual Life Insurance

McKinneyOlson Insurance offers several different coverage options for your consideration: term life, whole life, universal life, and variable life insurance.

Term Life – This is typically the simplest and least expensive insurance option. Term life insurance provides coverage at a fixed rate for a specified period of time. It is a benefit policy that is used primarily to cover financial responsibilities of the insured, with the benefit to be paid only if the insured were to die during the specified term. Most term life policies can be converted to a more permanent insurance solution such as whole life, variable life, or universal life insurance.   

There are two types of term life insurance: 

  • Annual Renewable Term is purchased for a period of one year, with the death benefit to be paid only if the insured were to die during that one-year term, along with the option to renew after the term period.
  • Level Term Life guarantees a fixed premium for a given period of time, usually in terms of 10, 15, 20, or 30 years. Your premium is based on your age and coverage options, with longer terms being more expensive.?

Whole Life – As the most common type of permanent insurance, a whole life policy guarantees a death benefit for the lifetime of the insured as well as a cash value account for savings. Your premium remains constant throughout the duration of the policy while payments over and above your premium are credited to your savings, which earn a fixed rate of interest. 

Universal Life – Universal life policies are designed to be more flexible than other permanent Life Insurance. You are still guaranteed a death benefit for the duration of the policy as well as savings that accumulate cash value, but the flexibility of a Universal Life plan allows you to change certain aspects of your plan to accommodate life changes. 

Depending on your options, you have the flexibility to change the overall value of the death benefit as well as the time and amount in which you pay your premium. This gives you the option to focus on building your policy’s cash value, or pay a lower premium and focus on guaranteed protection. It is important to note that changes to your universal life policy can affect its guarantees and limits.

Variable Universal Life - With a variable universal life (VUL) Insurance policy, you get the same flexible benefits of Universal Life while being able to take advantage of potential economic growth in the stock market. Instead of creating a cash value for savings, the value of your VUL policy is invested in professionally managed funds that reflect the performance of the stock market. This also means that as the policy owner, you assume the risk and responsibility of monitoring your own investments.

Testimonials

It seems overall customer service has really waned in American businesses over the past decade. Everything has gone electronic and the personal touch is all but gone. NOT TRUE at McKinney Olson---- it is alive and well!

The Brandon Valley School District has been a client of McKinneyOlson Insurance for over 5 years. The level of service we have received has been second to none. We get a very apersonal touch that one would associate with a small agency but have the resources available to us of a larger agency. BV's relationship with McKinneyOlson is much more than client/vendor. It is a partnership in business. Thanks for all you do!

I have been with McKinneyOlson Insurance for a few years now and I am pleased with the different types of insurance that they offer. I don't need to shop around for car insurance, home insurance and life insurance. It's all under one roof. They all work really hard to insure that all of my insurance needs have been met.

I really appreciate talking to a real person who is in South Dakota. Some places you have to push so many buttons to get to a person, McKinneyOlson makes it easy.

Hi Steve, just a note to say how enjoyable it is to work with the Brandon office of McKinneyOlson. The customer service is outstanding. We've been so impressed with the way in which our roof claim was handled this year. An adjuster was at our home within a few days of contacting your office, and shortly thereafter we received a check from the insurance company. True to their word, within 2 weeks of turning in the receipts for our new roof, we received the final payment in full from Auto Owners Insurance. We were very well satisfied with the settlement. Our thanks to you and Linda for all that you do.
