How well do you understand life insurance? If you don’t know as much as you should, an unscrupulous agent who meets with you might convince you to purchase a product that could cost you hundreds or even thousands of wasted dollars. Today we’ll dive into the basics of life insurance, including, how insurances are priced, how term and permanent policies are different (and the same), and why most people shouldn’t look at insurance as an investment. Even if you know some general “rules of thumb” about insurance, there’s a good possibility that you should be able to round out your product knowledge in a deeper way.
Speaking of unscrupulous, during our headlines segment we dive into a new alleged scam. How do you spot a financial “professional” who’s really asking you to invest in a product that doesn’t exist (or one that’s not suitable)? We’ll talk about clues to sniff out bad actors and also discuss the particulars of the investments that were used so that you know more about the upsides and downsides of the “weapons” this particular scammer used.
It’s a fun Wednesday deep dive for us! Hope you enjoy it!
