It’s hard to say because it depends on your own circumstances and financial goals.
Generally, Term Life Insurance offers the greatest coverage for the lowest initial premium and is a great solution for individuals with a temporary need or a very limited budget.
Permanent Life Insurance might make more sense for individuals looking for lifelong protection, or if the option of accumulating tax-deferred cash values is attractive to you. Permanent Insurance is primarily used in Estate Planning.
Or you can choose to buy both! A combination of both term and permanent insurance is often the right answer.
