Is a whole life insurance policy through Knights of Columbus a wise financial investment?

I'm considering this life insurance. Is it a sound financial move?

I like it, you can borrow a significant ammount of the cash value from the bank of you. Intrest paid adds to the value of the policy. You own it. I saw it as a safety net and the rates are very competitive. Don't see how you could go wrong.

Whole life is generally not a great investment unless you have maxed out your 401(k) or IRA, especially if you are under 40. Look at term life insurance rates.

Whole life insurance is rarely a good investment for anyone. It is life insurance, not an investment. Get life insurance, then get an IRA or 401K for your investments.


Answer by  Rubberchicken (819)

Any decision about a cash-value life policy needs to be weighed in respect to your overall investment portfolio, age, and tax bracket. For example, one may want to consider fully-funding a 401(k) or Roth IRA before using post-tax dollars to pay for a whole life policy.
