About Death and Total Permanent Disability Insurance

I think it's a long term life insurance policy and it dosent have a specified date when the insurer would recieve his or her benefit ,I think it actually exist for long and the insurer only get the premium benefit when he or she is dead ,that's part of it's feautures
