If you already have auto insurance on another vehicle, most insurance companies will cover you up to a month while you work on insuring the new vehicle. On the other hand, if you do not already have auto insurance, you had best not be driving the new vehicle until you get insurance. If auto insurance companies find that you've been driving without insurance they will raise your rates when you DO get around to it, and they'll put you into a high-risk group.

How long does it take to cash out a life insurance policy?

Define your question better. Think person's question is self explanatory: Evidently they have an "universal life" style policy and they want to cash it in for the "cash value" You first have to submit the correct forms for your Insurance company and might have to get it notorized if you do not have original paperwork: once the paper work is RECEIVED by them it should take 7-10 days for them to process it. and add a couple days for check to get sent to you: I would ask the individual insurance company as some companies only send them out the 1st and 15th and say it is due to the interest being credited at those dates.

What type of policy is not permanent life insurance?

Of the various types of life insurance that exist, "term" life insurance is not permanent. This is because it remains in force only as long as premiums are paid. In contrast, "whole life insurance" is frequently also referred to as "permanent insurance" That is because it accumulates cash value, which is sort of a saving account built into the policy. Therefore, once cash value reached a certain amount, in theory, no further premiums have to be paid because the policy can be maintained based upon the cash value.

Are life insurance premiums deductible on year end taxes?

No. That's why the proceeds aren't taxed as income. Answer Correct...premiums are taxable. Death benefits are generally not taxed as income. Also if it is permanent life insurance policy and has some cash value built up and you take that cash out, the amount of cash less the premiums paid into the policy ("your gain") is taxable. Additional comment: Actually, if you take your cash value out as a loan, you do not have to pay taxes on "gains" as long as the life insurance is in place, hopefully until you die.
