E-mail Print PDF
Life insurance, often misunderstood, is essentially a safety net for life’s unforeseen events. It’s a contract where you pay regular premiums to an insurance company, and in return, they provide financial support to your family if you pass away.

Imagine you are a farmer. You have been working the land for years, cultivating crops, and raising livestock. You have grown accustomed to the rhythms of the seasons, the unpredictable weather patterns, and the vagaries of the market. You have learned to adapt to the changing circumstances and to make the most of what you have.

Fixed-indexed annuities can be considered the equivalent of crop...
