The Perils of Whole Life Policies
Whole Life Policies
Whole life insurance policies are often unsuitable for the individuals who are pushed into buying them. In an ideal world, whole life policies were created to maximize the prospect of high interest rates and increasing stock prices which, again ideally, would decrease premiums and elevate the policy’s cash value. If you purchased a whole life policy in California and were over the age of 60 when you purchased and are experiencing problems with your policy, call Evans Law Firm today at 415-441-8669. The consultation is free, and cases of this type are taken on a contingency basis, meaning we only collect money if you do too.
It is important to keep in mind that we do not live in an ideal world. In reality,whole life policies often do not live up the expectations that purchasers had when they signed on, and they can drain bank accounts quickly. Often, cash value dwindles as the stock market does not perform as hoped for (or as promised), and the policy’s accumulated value cannot meet the rising premiums in later years. Consequently, cash flow decreases or disappears, and investors are sometimes left with virtually nothing after they believed their policy could serve as a retirement nest egg.. Instead, maintaining the policy becomes an unexpected financial drain. These “not as promised” and “not as advertised” disadvantages with whole life policies happen often, and you may be one of the people affected by this issue.
Whole life policies may not be the proper choice for you and your financial situation. If you purchased a whole life policy in California and were over the age of 60 when you purchased and are experiencing problems with your policy, call Evans Law Firm today at 415-441-8669. The consultation is free, and cases of this type are taken on a contingency basis, meaning we only collect money if you do too. Don’t be taken advantage of by insurance companies and agents who sold you an unsuitable policy.
