Just a few years ago there were only a couple insurance companies that added true living benefit life insurance within both their term and permanent life insurance products. Now, nearly ten different major insurers offer living benefit life insurance as a standard feature on select life insurance products. Recently another insurance company, one that is 140 years old, joined the growing list of insurers offering living benefit life insurance. This is great news! Even more, this particular insurer has additional benefits for all policy owners that are above and beyond what other insurers offer.Read More →

Whole life insurance is a permanent insurance; which means it will continue to insure you for your life time as long as you pay the premium. The premium never increases and the benefit never decreases. Like all insurance policies, the best time to purchase whole life insurance is when you are young and healthy. Doing so will lock in a low insurance rate for your entire life. It will also allow the policy the time it needs to compound your cash value without taxation into a serious nest egg.Read More →
Every life insurance we know of that also offers living benefits will have some conditions that require a loss of two or more activities of daily living to receive benefits for chronic illness. (There is no such requirment for critical illness) Every Long-term Care policy we know of includes these loss of activities of daily living as a condition for benefit. It is important that consumers understand the concept of activities of daily living so that they understand the benefits of long-term care insurance and long-term care riders within some life insurance policies.
Because of the advent of living benefit life insurance, consumers no longer need to purchase two separate policies to protect themselves and their families. In some cases, the long-term care benefits within a life insurance policy do not require a higher premium than the old life insurance, no other cases the premium is nominal.
This means that we can now own a life insurance policy that also acts as a long-term care policy without paying extra! This substantial cost savings means more families can protect themselves from life events that can destroy their next-egg and severely disrupt their quality of life.Read More →
