Life insurance companies make good money on these policies. There are generally incentives to life insurance agents to sell them. Insurers profit from people who buy these plans young and then drop them early.

Permanent Life Insurance

The only reason to buy permanent life insurance is that you are going to hold this insurance for life.

By holding the "permanent life insurance for life," we mean for life. There are usually up-front charges which considerably impact the savings component. Eventually, the savings will begin to pay off, but it can take 10 to 20 years for things to begin moving your way.

So what are you really getting? Well, it works like this: part of your monthly payment pays for the actual life insurance (This will normally be close to the amount you'd pay for term life insurance ). The rest of your payment (minus management charges; which are a fee over and above the cost of premium) is applied to the savings component. Therefore, in order to actually build savings, your premiums are higher than term life insurance by the amount of your savings contribution, plus fees to the life insurance company to 'manage' your money.

Rules to borrow against a permanent life insurance plan can be very complicated, can cost interest, and what if you don't want to pay it back? It's supposed to be "your money" afte...
