re: Trying to buy my dream property, but government. - Lafayette Saint
Maybe I've painted an irrational picture of the neighbors. Seems to be all you guys are grabbing onto here. I spent 30 minutes chatting with each of the two neighbors. They're country people who are proud of their great great grandfather's land. They were happy to come outside and chat with me and m...

re: Trying to buy my dream property, but government. - Lafayette Saint
I believe I've got legal access, as there is a roadway that leads there but that LCG won't grant me an address on it. Is it possible that those two things can be different?...

Trying to buy my dream property, but government. - Lafayette Saint
Alright guys I'm beating my head against a wall here. Maybe the infinite wisdom of Tigerdroppings can assist. TLDR: Lafayette Zoning and Development won't grant me an address because the property doesn't have a certified road that runs in front of it, rather a "glorified driveway" that leads to ...

re: IUL Life Insurance used as retirement - Lafayette Saint
[quote]Just make sure your agent isn't selling you too much life insurance. Buy the bulk of your life insurance on a term chassis. Heavy on the cash funding and light on the COI. I always design my supplemental retirement plans with the most premium the regulators will let my clients stuff in there....

re: IUL Life Insurance used as retirement - Lafayette Saint
[quote]What are you buying it for?[/quote] Strictly an investment opportunity. The wife's company doesn't offer a 401K, and my agent feels that this investment is better than a roth or traditional IRA. [quote]Ask your agent to run a 10 year look back illustration to see what it would be worth ...

[quote]Lastly, how long do you HAVE to fund it and what happens if you momentarily stop? That's the big kicker. It's a decent product in 40 years IF you fund it for 40 years, but how many people make it that long?[/quote] He showed me clients that had stopped contributing, and as long as the cash...

re: IUL Life Insurance used as retirement - Lafayette Saint
[quote]Find out what the fees are[/quote] So they max out a 6%, and they also deduct the "cost" of life insurance per month. So for me, being 28 and healthy as an ox, the "cost" of a 150,000 policy might be $20-$30/month. That cost is reduced from my "bucket" monthly. ...

re: IUL Life Insurance used as retirement - Lafayette Saint
[quote]for it to pay as much as 12.5%, I would guess the overall performance of that index would be much higher than 12.5%. By giving you that downside protection, it seems to me they must drastically limit the upside potential. I don't see the fine print, so take that thought for what it's worth.[/...

IUL Life Insurance used as retirement - Lafayette Saint
OK. Bear with me here, as I cant claim to fully understand everything I was pitched today. I took great interest in a particular product that was pitched to me today: an Indexed Universal Life policy that was going to be setup to act moreso like a retirement account than a life insurance policy. ...

re: Naming my kid.. - Lafayette Saint
There enlies the problem. Neither of us have read the book, and I can't fathom the conversation that ensues after a Twain fan learns their names. We disagree on whether or not that will occur in life, though. Nothing like letting the objective, realistic, super sincere folks on tigerdroppings ai...
