Whole life insurance is the guaranteed life insurance product. It has long been he top choice for individuals seeking the guarantee of having life insurance coverage for their entire life. But not all whole life policies are successfully accomplishing this goal. Why?
Because a number of policies are using non-guaranteed features to accomplish certain goals, and some policyholders aren’t aware of where their guarantees end and non-guarantees begin. This could cause a problem if non-guaranteed assumptions fail to hit their targets. If you own one of these policies, you’ll want to take notice of this. Taking action now could save you a lot of money and frustration.

3 thoughts on “Why Are Whole Life Insurance Policies Failing?”
Would you consider making a video about how the amount one receives in dividends is affected by base premium vs. PUA premium?
Also, about how the insurance company determines the rate at which the cash value of a whole life policy will grow over time? I don't understand how they do the net present value calculation and if it's purely math (therefore the same for every company assuming every other variable is held equal) or if each insurance company can determine the method for calculating it arbitrarily. Or is it something else?
Dave ramsey says any life insurance product other than term life is a scam and that you should never buy anything other than a term life.
Good info. Thanks!
