Why do I need an actuary to review my policy?
Life insurance and annuity products can offer clients great value. Unfortunately many life insurance and annuity agents try to sell clients products that maximize the agent’s commissions at the expense of the client’s best interests. This often means that these policies are not sold or managed in the best financial interests of the policy owner.
The truth of the matter is that most agents get paid 80% to 100% of the first year premium on these permanent policies, but 50% of these of these policies are cancelled within 10 years-often at a great loss (as a result of high cancellation fees) to the policy owner because the agent sold them a product that didn’t meet their needs.
Many annuities often have the same problem with high commissions and large back-end cancellation fees. Unfortunately most individuals purchase these complex products without having any independent analysis of whether they are getting a good deal or a bad one. You wouldn’t think of advising your clients to invest hundreds of thousands or millions on a home without having a qualified individual appraise its market value would you? Why would you do so with an annuity or life insurance investment that can carry serious financial consequences?
