Understanding Insurance Dividends – Episode 063


Join bestselling author, Kim Butler and Todd Strobel as they discuss dividend-paying whole life insurance: what are they, where they come from, and what they can be used for. Figure out whether or not you can change your dividend policy, and what the most common strategy for dividends is.

If you’re looking to learn about your insurance policy, ask for an “inforce” illustration or ledger from your insurance company. Then feel free to send it over to Kim and she’ll be happy to explain it to you, in plain english. She’ll tell you whether it’s universal life or whole life, the internal rate of return, strategies for how to save the policy if it’s starting to have problems, etc.

As always, we appreciate your questions, concerns and comments! Send us an email at welcome@prosperitythinkers.com.
