TAKING care of the pennies so the pounds took care of themselves was a discipline I’m sure most mothers knocked slowly into each of our heads. My mother was no different. On a regular basis, I run the cost of my life insurance through a comparison to ensure I’m paying the least for my cover that I should be, or that I am maximising the cover for the premium I’m paying. Most households have their mortgage and cost of living insured against, but disturbingly, 8.5 million breadwinners in the UK have no life insurance at all leaving the UK under insured by £263bn. I can’t imagine the desperation of a family having lost a loved one and breadwinner who can’t afford to pay off their mortgage and are then faced with repossession and eviction. Life insurance dates back as far as 100BC when Roman soldiers put money into a pot to pool risk to protect surviving families in the event of death. It took a few wrong turns with the unscrupulous insuring someone they … [Read more...] about Tax free life insurance or 55% tax?

By Suzanne Barlyn (Reuters) - Big U.S. life insurers are bracing for elevated payouts to owners of long-term care policies, which cover expenses like assisted living for infirmed and elderly customers. Insurers that have long-term care businesses likely set aside more funds for claims on older policies during the third quarter, analysts said. Unum Group <UNM.N> said on Wednesday that it had boosted long-term care reserves by $593 million, after taxes, partly reflecting its expectation that claims would remain elevated going forward. MetLife Inc <MET.N> and Genworth Financial Inc <GNW.N> are among those scheduled to report next week. Canada's Manulife Financial Corp <MFC.TO> is due to report on Nov. 7. The pattern will continue for long-term care insurers through 2019, with many boosting reserves by at least ten percent, Fitch Ratings said in a recent report.

POLITICS 07/12/2018 01:00 pm ET Neither of the two groups likely to spend the most will reveal their donors before the Senate votes on Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation. By Kevin Robillard President Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill a Supreme Court vacancy has set up a multimillion-dollar television advertising war — but viewers and voters are unlikely to know who paid for most of the ads before a potential Senate vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation, and might never know. The two groups expected to spend the most on the fight are the Judicial Crisis Network, which is linked to the Federalist Society, a group for conservative lawyers, and Demand Justice, a new liberal group led by a former spokesman for President Barack Obama’s Justice Department. Neither plans on disclosing its donors before a vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination. The opacity comes as public polling indicates voters are worried about the role money … [Read more...] about Millions Of Dollars In Supreme Court Ads Are Coming And We Won’t Know Who Paid For Them
