The owner has the option to reduce or even stop making payments without the risk of the policy lapsing, for as long as the policy builds cash value. Universal Life Insurance policies can last a very long time (for example: 100 years onwards) depending on the policy itself as opposed to that of a Term life Insurance wherein it will lapse after a short period of time (for example : 10 years onwards).
