There is one big difference between universal life insurance and variable life insurance.
With variable universal life insurance, you do not have a set schedule and amount for your premium payments. You are allowed to pay as much or as little as you wish whenever you want as long as your account stays above a specified amount. So, if you don't have the money for a variable universal life insurance payment one month, you can skip that month's payment and make a larger payment toward your account next month.
With universal life insurance, you do not have the same month-to-month flexibility. You will have a set payment that you need to make by a set time each month.
