No! there are so many online postings from ex-employees telling about the lies they were trained to tell. My story is as a customer. Recently I tried to claim on my insurance… policy with AIL and had some problems, I was going to cancel my policy after finding some unethical loopholes but it seemed every staff member I talked to was willing to say whatever I wanted to hear so I didn't cancel the policy. I had called around to ensure my claim was valid and of all the numbers I tried from Canada and the US and all the people I talked to from varying levels of management I was told I *should* be able to claim no problem. Some even offered personal stories from others who had claimed for the same thing. However, after doing all the running around (getting forms to doctors etc.) I was told my claim was not valid and that everyone I talked to should have told me so. Silly me for believing the lies - I hope this warning can help others not to make my same mistake!!
That really depends on who you ask. I would say leave enough for funeral, pay about half of your kids college, pay off your mortgagr and 2 years of your income. Your funeral s…hould be whole life, the rest shoul be term life. Adjust every 5 years as needed. Also need to find the right balance of insurance and savings. That is important.

Answer One of the still remaining, best aspects of Life insurance, (the investment aspect of which has been generally agreed to be poor at best) is that the… insurance industry has gotten congress to retain that payouts of life insurance to a beneficiary are NOT TAXABLE. That is also why one should always have their insurance policy payable to a specific beneficiary...it passes very quickly, directly to them, out side of the estate and being outside the estate, is exempt from income estate/inheritance and transfer taxes. (If you make yourself or your estate the beneficiary, you would lose the last advantage,as it would become part of the estate). citations: Amounts received under a “life insurance contract” , that are paid by reason of the insured's death aren't included in the gross income of the recipient (i.e., beneficiary) ( Code Sec. 101(a) ) (unless the policy was transferred for value). The exclusion applies to lump sum payments made at the time of the insured's death, and to amounts paid later to the extent the payment doesn't exceed the amount payable at death. ( Reg § 1.101-1(a)(1)
Generally not. They would have to have enough income to have to pay taxes ...which would disqualify them from receiving welfare!.
Yes, State Income Taxes are deductible against Federal income; not the amount you owe the state, but the amount you actually paid through withholding, prior year credits, paym…ents with the prior year state return, and/or estimated payments, during the calendar year for which you are filing Form 1040. You must file a 1040 Schedule A, Itemized Deductions in order to claim either state income tax or state sales tax on your return. Your total itemized deductions need to be greater than your Standard Deduction to be of benefit to you. If you file a Form 1040, and itemize deductions on Schedule A, you have the option of claiming either state and local income taxes or state and local sales taxes. (You can't claim both.) If you saved your receipts throughout the year, you can add up the total amount of sales taxes you actually paid and claim that amount. If you didn't save all your receipts, you can still choose to claim state and local sales taxes. You can even use the Sales Tax Deduction Calculator to figure how much state sales taxes you can claim if you decide to go that route. Using the Sales Tax Deduction Calculator To figure the amount of optional general sales tax you are eligible to claim, just answer a few online questions and the system does the rest. First select the year you are filing taxes for. Then, using your ZIP Code and just a few entries from your draft Form 1040, the Sales Tax Deduction Calculator will automatically figure the amount of state and local sales tax you can claim. You will see the results from your entries immediately on your computer screen. Even if state and local sales tax rates changed during the year (e.g., due to changes in state and local rates or because you moved your personal residence), the Sales Tax Deduction Calculator can handle it. Your entries are anonymous and the information is collected solely to allow you to determine your total allowable deduction. All entries are erased when you exit or start over.
The death benefit on a life insurance policy is not taxable for federal income tax purposes. However, the death benefit becomes included in the estate calculations of the de…ceased. So, depending on the estate tax laws in affect at the time of death, there may be estate taxes on the death benefit proceeds of the life insurance policy (but not income taxes). Here's an example. If you are the beneficiary of a death benefit of $500k from your parent and your parent has no other assets, then there would likely be no taxes on the proceeds. If you are the beneficiary of a death benefit of $500k from your parent and your parent has more assets than the Federal estate tax exclusions in effect at time of death, then perhaps the $500k will have estate taxes due as part of the estate. This is because the addition of the policy proceeds to whatever else comprosed the estate may take the estate value over the limit such that taxes will be payable on it. This was a simple example, and there are certainly many other possibilities and scenarios.
