Can Life Insurance be Interesting?

The reader might assume that the subject of life insurance is neither very controversial nor interesting. Such a conclusion would be in great error.

1982 - Introduction to Life Insurance -  Mark Dorfman, Academic Textbook

Insurance has historically been something of a Rodney Dangerfield of the law.

If lawyers and teachers cannot embrace insurance as an appealing subject, it should come as no surprise that most laypersons think of insurance as boring.

Unlike a term policy, which can end after a specified number of years, permanent life insurance will continue to the policy’s maturity age so long as premiums are paid.

(Note that this isn’t exactly accurate for UL <Universal Life>, where policies can continue as long as the cash value is sufficient to pay the policy charges. We may want to make that distinction.)  <<< ----BonkNote: ACLI Wording>>>

"The policy does not lapse if a premium is not paid; rather, it lapses if the fund balance becomes too small to pay the next month's cost of  insurance." --Ben H. Mitchell
