Is It Life Insurance Or Not?

Is It Life Insurance Or Not?

I had a potential customer get upset with me the other day because I couldn’t provide him a 30 year term life insurance policy. It wasn’t because he had medical history that precluded a life insurance approval, but rather his job. Pretty innocuous really. He works as an accountant, but his office is in Timbuktu (really) in Mali. Because Timbuktu is home to a faction of Al Quaeda and ge...
War Zone Disability Income Insurance!

War Zone Disability Income Insurance!

You’ve hear me talk about war zone or dangerous area life insurance for civilian contractors in numerous posts and you may have inadvertently not connected the disability income feature or product that is also available. Just like the military there are far more wounded than killed, often doing something that in the rest of the world would be safe, driving from one place to another. With the...
NCIS Afghanistan Question!

NCIS Afghanistan Question!

So I got a call yesterday from someone in the TV business working on an NCIS like show and they wanted to know, if it were real life which it probably is, could I get those guys life insurance to go into Afghanistan and do some of the things they do. I guess everyone watches television but I don’t much. I have seen a few of the NCIS shows where they go into Afghanistan to kill someone, or to...
Does Your Life Insurance Cover Acts Of War And Terrorism?

Does Your Life Insurance Cover Acts Of War And Terrorism?

If there is anything I’m not in this business, it’s the proverbial ambulance chaser. So forgive me as I write this but keep in mind that I am not here to scare you into buying life insurance you don’t need, but rather to give you the good news that, in most cases, you already have what you need in this dangerous world. Since the 60’s, with the exception of small, burial typ...
Life Insurance AntiMissionarianism!

Life Insurance AntiMissionarianism!

I remember when I learned to spell antidisestablishmentariansim. 6th grade. I was way proud of myself even though I had no clue what it meant. I think that came in about the 10th grade and by then, even though I knew what it meant, I didn’t care. So now I make up words, mostly for the blogs, and sometimes just to get looks. All of that is to say that my most recent word, at least according t...
Define Those Two Kinds of Life Insurance Por Favor!

Define Those Two Kinds of Life Insurance Por Favor!

I get asked a lot of a particular condition is high risk or impaired risk and it just occurred to me that those people perceive themselves to be high risk because no insurance companies want to carry the policy on them. Please forgive me and understand that I know my blog posts are a little blurred right now as I try to get used to some new meds. All of you with bipolar raise your hand if you agre...
When You Climb Higher Than Most SkyDivers Jump From!!

When You Climb Higher Than Most SkyDivers Jump From!!

Since the first half of the twentieth century, about 7,000 people have attempted to climb the tallest peak in the world, and almost 300 of them have perished doing so.  In the high elevations of the Himalayas, death befalls climbers due to a number of different causes including altitude sickness, falls, avalanches and rope accidents.  The slopes of Mount Everest have proved deadly for many decad...
What’s Clear About That?

What’s Clear About That?

It probably never was simple or clear even when it was just US based contractors simply running around Iraq and Afghanistan rebuilding infrastructure and buildings that our armed forces had methodically dismantled. Now, and maybe back then, there are people serving companies in every conceivable dangerous place and war zone in every conceivable dangerous job including anti terrorism consulting (?)...
War Zone Life Insurance Buyer Beware!!

War Zone Life Insurance Buyer Beware!!

I only bring this up because a former client of mine, convinced that I had misinformed him, dropped his Lloyds of London Accidental Death and Dismemberment insurance covering him for all acts of war and terrorism. He works as technical support in a forward operating base in Afghanistan and was paying something in the $200 a month range for $500,000 worth of coverage. His wife did her due diligence...
Acts Of War Or Terrorism Life Insurance!

Acts Of War Or Terrorism Life Insurance!

I don’t like to play on people’s fears when helping with life insurance, but let’s be practical. If you are a missionary, business person or civilian contractor with ties to the US and you’re working in areas of the world where bad people are playing the wreaking havoc game and being American targets gets them the most points, life insurance that speaks directly to acts of...
