Can you tell me what are the features for these insurance policies?
1) Limited pyament whole life insurance
2) Regular prenium investment-linked policies
3) Anticipated Endowment Insurance
I will only give a brief explanation here. Please search Google for a more detailed explanation.
A limited payment whole life policy requires you to pay premium for a certain number of years and be insured for the whole of life. If you pay premium for a shorter period, the annual premium is higher.
A regular premium investment linked policy requires you to pay a regular premium over many years. The premium is invested in an investment fund. You will get the value of the invested units.
An anticipated endowment policy pays the maturity benefit in installments during the term. For example, if you insure for 50,000 over 20 years under an anticipated endowment policy, the $50,000 is paid to you in installments over the 20 years. The annual premium for an anticipated endowment policy is much higher than an ordinary endowment policy.
A life insurance policy may take away as much as two years of your premium to pay commission to the agent. This is too much to be taken away. If you pay a premium of $300 a month, two years of premium amount to $7,200. This is the money taken away from you to pay the agent.
I advise people not to buy all of these types of insurance policies, including critical illness policy, which pays high commission. It is all right to buy term insurance policy (where the premium is low) or a single premium policy, where the commisison is less than 3%.
All the best.
