However, early withdrawal has severe penalties as well as tax consequences.Privatized Banking plans can be set up for the individual employee, through a participating employer.

Either will work.
How secure are the companies that you deal with?
We deal with mutual life insurance companies that have been in existence for over a hundred years. These companies have a track record of paying dividends to all whole life policy holders consistently for over 100 years as well. Unlike banks, who only have to have enough cash reserves to cover 1/10 of their deposits ($1 for every $10), mutual life insurance companies must match dollar for dollar all the money invested in their policies thus making these companies more sound than most banks.
I’ve heard that once you start a policy, you are hooked into payments for life. True or False?
False. Mutual whole life policies grow faster with payments for life. They do not have to be structured that way. Several people opt for the paid up in 4 or 5 year plan. This is why we will custom craft a policy for you and your budget. We want this program to be successful for you.
Is it true that premiums increase as you get older?
With term insurance, premiums increase as the insured gets older. Term insurance doesn’t gain in cash value either. For these reasons, we use only mutual whole life policies. These policies have a fixed payment structure. You’ll know before you sign up what the terms are and how much the payments will be. Once the contract is set, it cannot be changed by the insurance company.
