When it comes to life insurance, you have two basic choices: Some form of cash value life insurance (including universal life) and term life insurance.
Cash value, or whole life, as a “bundled” policy, requires you to buy both your death benefit and a cash value feature.
For the cash savings, the money is controlled by the insurance company and reverts to the life insurance company, not the estate of policy holder. It's in the contract. A little "s" is inserted between the CV in the contract = cash surrender value.
It's your money...and while you may borrow it--at up to 8% interest--why not claim it yourself. But never cancel any policy until you have a new one in place.

Live Your Life Insurance
Many people think they have just the right life insurance. Many say, I'm good when asked what they have and why. The reason is because they can't explain what they have, They just know they have some. This is a very bad situation. An old policy is probably not cost effective. A new policy may be the wrong product for your age or budget. How long will you have to pay preiums? What is the dividend arrangement. How much interest do you earn? All really serious questions. So, saying I'm good means, I really don't know what I have and why.

There's no faster way to clear a room than to talk about life insurance. How can something so necessary for families be so scorned and avoided? Without proper income protection--and that is what life insurance is--families can face financial devastation.
Just ask the many widows and widowers left to raise a family after the loss of a loved one...with 50 per cent of the household income gone and the bills still there. Getting life insurance is proof of your vows to honor and protect your spouse and your family.

Affordable Care Act a boon for some small businesses
May 10, 2014 8:03 PM
By Bill Toland / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Bob Goldstein, a certified public accountant, knows his math — but he still couldn’t believe the numbers.
At his small accounting firm last year, health insurance for him, his wife and his handful of employees was costing $8,574 a month — or $102,888 for a full year of Highmark premiums.
That was before the Affordable Care Act took full effect. Now, premiums for his employees are costing $1,841 a month, or a bit more than $22,000 a year.
Annual savings? Nearly $81,000.
“Anybody who has less than 50 people would be crazy not to look at” individual insurance plans for employees purchased through, or alongside, the new health insurance marketplace, the Point Breeze CPA said.
Much has been made about how the Affordable Care Act will affect small businesses. A February report from the federal government said more would see premiums increase, rather than decrease, under the new pricing and ratings systems put in place by the ACA.
All new small-group policies are now treated like individual policies, and each employee — and covered family member — is rated and priced separately based on age, gender, place of residence and smoking habits. Those individual premiums are added up, and the small business pays the bill

Even the most casual observer of the risk and insurance industries can easily see the “fingerprints” of government on the process and results. Legislation, litigation and regulation are much of the process. The change that is the ACA is just one large example. Even the most casual observer of government can easily see the “fingerprints” of politics and grassroots on the process and hence the outcomes.
In the past two decades, Brian Feldman has lived and worked at the intersection of healthcare, grassroots and politics. As a founder of the Edison Group and now as a Senior Partner with Allison Partners – Brian will provide us with insight into the past, present, and future of the art of politics and the people and groups that determine the outcome.
