Surviving spouse life-insurance scam

Nobody really enjoys buying insurance so I don’t think the “pain areas” are something we can escape from. However, it is a necessity unless we want to make matters far worse in case bad things happen to what we are protecting by owning insurance policies. The best way to deal with pain areas are 1) make sure you have the right product for your situation 2) make sure you are not overpaying for coverage.

Is it the right product or did the agent sell me something they wanted me to buy? Do I need to add additional coverage? You might need a new life policy because of recent events. Is it too little or too much coverage? Are my deductibles still acceptable to me? Did anything change in the coverage that the agent never mentioned? Also, is the agent maintaining contact with you via email, texts or an occasional phone call? You want your agent to be accessible 24/7. Hope this helps.

What is an IUL you may ask? One of the latest inventions of the insurance industry. It stands for Indexed Universal Life. A policy which can be dangerously misrepresented. I have disdained this product since it came out, no matter how many slick presentation schemes that brokerages come up with to recruit me to sell this monster. Having said that, I wasn't surprised recently when a well known social media guru told me they lost $15,000 in a policy and got out of it.
Let's tackle a rough subject. HEALTH INSURANCE. With Obamacare imploding, even wealthy people are choosing not to pay the outrageous premiums. Notice how the media completely ignores what everyone was promised when the Demonics forced the grand bill into law. Because of this, the old fashioned "Indemnity" plans are coming back.
We insurance agents get preyed upon by every insurance marketing organization known to man. All of them wanting new agents to move their products with the zeal of a traveling evangelist. This is great because this is America and competition makes everything better right? Right.
