Reader:
I was introduced by my colleague to your blog and only started to read it last night. Many useful tips indeed and I really regret not reading it earlier.

I am single and 47 this year. I bought an ILP from Prudential for an assured sum of $100,000when I was 27 for an annual premium of $2,000 for death, PD and CI. My surrender value now is about $40,000.

Shall I follow your blog advice to terminate it and purchase a term policy till 62?

Currently almost half of my annual premiums is used to cover the cost and will escalate once I enter into my 50s

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


What is the purpose of insurance?

(Alamak, paid $2,000 a year for 21 years and now can get back only about $40,000?)
Since you have read my blog on the subject, you know why we should not mix insurance with investment…
