Only in a whole life insurance policy, you can have access to the cash values without draining the tank. Basically you’re able to continuously earn compound interest and access that money to make an investment that will potentially earn you a higher rate of return.
One of the most misunderstood concepts of life insurance policies is the so-called 4% guaranteed rate of interest.
As a result of it a lot of times people get a life insurance policy but don’t see what they are told – the guaranteed 4% rate of return.
The 4% isn’t a guaranteed interest rate of return, but rather a discount rate.
