Traditional life insurance, also called first to die life insurance, is insurance on the life of a single individual. If that individual were to pass away while the policy is in effect then the benefactor would receive the face value of the policy. A very simple transaction and second to die life insurance is only slightly different. Instead of insuring one person, the policy insures the life of two. This detail means that if one person dies then there is no payout. Only after both people have passed away will there be a payout to the beneficiaries.
