Those are my intentions, as well.. I want my vehicle to last me 20 years, but I'm unsure if this is the one I want to be in for the next 10-15 years.

[quote]What's his selling point? I'm unfamiliar with that.[/quote]
Basically they're offering 10,15 and 20 year plans, instead of having to make payments until your 65.
That money then grows exponentially by the time you'd need it, and 90% can be withdrawn without penalty.

What do y'all think about whole life insurance as another vehicle to build retirement?
A buddy of mine at Northwestern Mutual is trying to sell me on it. Seems too good to be true, is there some hidden catch?
