The complications begin with a very simple question: What's the premium for Universal Life? It could be almost anything.
Then what's the cash value? That depends on the premium.
It is the relationship between the premium and cash value that determines the product characteristics of Universal Life.

TW - Maybe we just point out the cash value
You Generally pay a planned premium designed to keep the policy in force for life, and accumulate cash value, based upon the interest and expense and mortality charges you assume. It is important that these assumptions be realistic because if they are not, you may have to pay more to keep the policy from decreasing or lapsing. On the other hand, if your experience is better then the assumptions, than you may be able in the future to skip a premium, to pay less, or to have the plan paid up at an early date.
You do not have to pay the planned premium, but if you pay less, the benefit may be more like term insurance, which is only in force for a limited time and builds no cash value. On the other hand, if you pay more, and your assumptions are realistic, it is possible to pay up the policy at an early date. Basic Types of Policies

The main concern was that an unsophisticated buyer purchased a policy and did not know what the coverages, benefits and limitations were.
