A major difference between a whole-of-life insurance policy and a term-life policy is:

1.a whole-of-life policy is long-term, whereas a term policy is only for a term of one year.

2.a term policy has an investment component, specified only for the term.

3.only a whole-of-life policy has an investment part.

4.term policies only pay bonuses at the end of the term, unlike the wholeâ “of-life policy, which pays them out immediately as they are accumulated.
