Fixed rate, premiums and insurance coverage for policyholders and insurance companies in traditional life insurance have increased certain risks. For this reason, we consider studying variable life insurance. The biggest difference between the two insurance is that whether the actual death benefit of volatility is changeable. This paper studied the change of the premium when the premium changes in proportion to the death benefit and when it is fixed. And, it put forward a way to pay the death benefit, named “pay off increasing amount insurance”. Finally, this paper simulated the mean and variance of the death benefit using Monte Carlo method, and also compared the advantage and disadvantages of each approach.
