Is life insurance a bad investment? Don't I lose all my cash value when I die? Shouldn't I just make a bundle and invest it instead? What about my spouse or my kids - do they need life insurance? Can I borrow money from (or is it against?) a life insurance policy? My insurance advisor told me one thing about insurance, but my financial planner gave me different advice, and an expert on TV said something else entirely. What do I do now? Help!
Every day, people like you and me run into questions like these - and no good answers. The truth about life insurance is that myths, misunderstandings, and even outright lies cause a lot of uncertainty around what it is, how it works, who needs it and when, and - most importantly - the great benefits it can bring to your life.

They've seen what works and what fails. They've lived through every success and failure the industry can throw at them. And they're fed up with seeing smart, well-meaning people fall for costly half-truths and mix-ups because they just can't find the right information.
