You know you need life insurance. But how much? Which kind? And for how long? Mike and Patrick share their opinions on how to address the financial risks associated with death and whether life insurance can also be an investment.

Examples provided are hypothetical illustrations only, actual investor results will vary. Life insurance policies have exclusions and/or limitations. The cost and availability of life insurance depend on factors such as age, health and the type and amount of insurance purchased. As with most financial decisions, there are expenses associated with the purchase of life insurance. Policies commonly have mortality and expense charges. In addition if a policy is surrendered prematurely, there may be surrender charges and income tax implications. Guarantees are based on the claims paying ability of the insurance company.
