A Universal Life Insurance policy can be a valuable addition to your life insurance program if it is property designed and properly funded.



Have you ever purchased a universal life insurance policy and cancelled it because the policy didn't perform as you had expected?

In our country, we stop selling universal life insurance policies. Universal life insurance cost lower compared to other insurances. If I have that kind of insurance, I will not cancel it. It is an added financial protection for me, in the case something bad will happened.

Universal life insurance is a type of permanent life insurance. It is also used to combine 2 important aspects of financial planning and as a savings element. It provides more flexibility than whole life insurance.

And, pray tell, what would those "2 important aspects" be?

Universal life insurance is no more "permanent" than a person's ability to pay premiums. And the unfortunate thing about Universal Life insurance premiums is that the monthly Cost of Insurance rate goes up every year, without fail. Which simply means that UL policies have the flexibility to result in completely unaffordable premiums in the future . . .something most agents who sell the product either do not know, or if they do know, they conceal this fact from their clients.

Universal Life insurance can work for those willing to pay much more than the initial premium recommended by the agent who plugs a few numbers into some illustration software program.

The words "permanent" and "temporary" as applied to life insurance are misnomers perpetuated by insurance companies and agents.



There is cash value life insurance, in several flavors, and there is term life insurance, also in several flavors but with no cash value, and term contracts typically do not last to age 121, like newer cash value contracts.



Both types of contracts are only as "permanent" as the owner's ability and willingness to pay premiums. Do some people need to continue their life insurance after age 90 or 95? Yes, and if that's true, then term life insurance will not be the best solution. And neither will any form of Universal Life either, unless a person has the ability and desire to manage the policy properly from Day One.
