Investopedia explains 'Renewable Term'


In the context of a life insurance contract, having a renewable term clause would be beneficial, as future health circumstances are unpredictable. Although the initial premiums are likely to be higher than those of a life insurance contract without a renewable term clause (the insurance company must be compensated for this increase in risk), buying this type of insurance is often in the beneficiary's best interest.
