But, life insurance can be much more than that; in fact, life insurance can be a way to build up a personal fund that you may use yourself BEFORE you die.
Buying life insurance can be very confusing because, today, you have so many choices. If you’ve ever thought about “What is the best type of life insurance to own,” the simple and best answer is “The type of life insurance that is in force on the day your heirs need it!” That may sound like some salesperson’s quick retort, but it is really The Truth!
