To continue on with the discussion of potentially rising interest rates…
We actually get into what it might mean for life insurance companies and for your life insurance policy–whether it happens to be participating whole life or universal life.
Major discussions in this episode:
- How quickly can you expect your dividend (WL) and/or interest rate (UL) to increase if Greenspan's prediction of a whipsaw comes true?
- Will the life insurers who were “forced” to raise expenses in their UL contracts over the last couple of years, lower these price increases as interest rates rise? (given that most of them gave the excuse of having to deal with a “prolonged period of low interest rates” to raise their prices on existing policies)
