How My Life Insurance Pays Me

Hello, my name is Sara Barrington.  I am 22 years old. I graduated college last spring and took some time over the summer to travel.  Last week I accepted a job offer within my field. I’m super excited to finally have a real job! Not just because I have bills to pay and a new car I want to buy, but because now I can afford to put more money into my Permanent Life Insurance policy.  

Crazy, I know.  I’m 22, why am I paying into Life Insurance right now? Well thankfully, my dad and his insurance agent Dave, taught me about how I can make money with my Life Insurance policy.  It’s really simple, and the younger you are, the more money you can make!

Strategic Self Banking Using Life Insurance

When I was 18, my dad sat me down and showed me the Life Insurance policy he took out on me when I was a eight.  He showed me how this policy was going to help pay for my college education. It did too, more than half of my four-year education came from the cash value in my policy that had accumulated throughout my childhood!  

He showed me how he’d use a portion of his Christmas bonus each year to purchase more whole life insurance which resulted in larger dividends being paid out year after year.

And these life insurance dividends would then purchase even more paid-up insurance, which helped increase my cash value and death benefit.

But you see, my dad wasn’t buying the Insurance because he thought I was going to die soon and wanted to give me a huge funeral. It was the opposite. He wanted me to live and gave me my own strategic banking policy to fund my life!

Making Money from Life Insurance

Now that college is over and I’m living and working in the real world, I want to start saving to buy a house someday.  I’d like to have a huge beautiful wedding. My dad taught me how I can do this by building up my cash value in a permanent life insurance policy. 

You see, each year, instead of cashing out the dividends for my own personal use, I use them to buy paid-up additions, which grows my death benefit and helps me accumulate even more cash value next year.  

By the time I’m 30, I’ll have over $300,000 in cash value accumulated that I can use for whatever I choose. After the initial funding period, my premium is now only $1,150 a year. In the next eight years I will have paid only $9,200 in premiums, but accrued more than $125,000 of money!
