What is BTID

Upon reading about different investment article, I believe by now you have encountered the word BTID. BTID means, Buy Term and Invest the difference. This is a common philosophy in investing as opposed to getting whole life insurance or VUL.

What is Term Life Insurance?

According to investopedia.com

A policy with a set duration limit on the coverage period. Once the policy is expired, it is up to the policy owner to decide whether to renew the term life insurance policy or to let the coverage end. This type of insurance policy contrasts with permanent life insurance, in which duration extends until the policy owner reaches 100 years of age (i.e. death).

These types of policies provide a stated benefit upon the death of the policy owner, provided that the death occurs within a specific time period. However, the policy does not provide any returns beyond the stated benefit, unlike permanent life insurance policies, which have a savings component that can be used for wealth accumulation.

As an example if you buy a term life insurance that covers from January 30, 2012 with a Php 1,000,000 insurance coverage,  you will then be protected by insurance for a year up until to January 29, 2013. After those dates what you have paid will not be recovered since it’s a payment for your protection for that year.
