What you need to know about Life Insurance

Does Life Insurance have a co-ordination of benefits clause?

No, They will ask on the application though if you have other coverage to prevent over insurance and to make sure there is insurable interest. So, if you need more coverage, buy it!!!!  It may or may not be advantages to cancel prior coverage.  It might have lower premiums as you were younger when you bought it and your health might have been better, etc.  It’s no problem to have two or more policies, one from employer, etc.

my mother wants to cash in her life insurance, she has approx 9,000, is it better to cash out or take out a loan?

Generally it’s better to take a loan.  That way you still have the policy in force.   You don’t have to pay back a loan.  The company might bill you for the interest though.  Does she need the whole 9K now or would it be better to borrow say $1k/year?

if she takes a loan does she need to pay it back, if she takes cash does she have to pay taxes?

Depends on how much she has paid into the policy.   Anything less than $9K – there would be tax on the difference.  That’s why a loan might be better.  What’s her tax bracket?   $1k/year would be lower taxes than 9K at one time.

her income is approx (social security  only) $7,644/yr, which ss is not suppose be taxable.

  1. Hi Steve

    great website and great information on here.

    We did notice that you haven’t listed a resource for people who have diabetes, and turn to to find life insurance.

    Here’s an agency that was founded by people with Diabetes, and is the only agency out there who ONLY works with people who have Diabetes.

    I’m sure alot of your readers could benefit from this website.

    All the best!!!
