Permanent Life Insurance 770 aka Tax-Free Retirement?
« on: September 24, 2014, 07:56:02 PM »
Is this thing legit? I applied for a job at a place that does this and it seems to good to be true. Basically it's "better than a 401k or an IRA because you never lose your money."

Need more details.  Is this a deferred compensation plan?   This may be what's called "COLI" or "BOLI"

When they have to disguise what it is..."770 plan"..."Tax Free Retirement"..."be your own bank" then you know it sucks!

I was wondering why I haven't heard of it from here. So I wonder how they earn their money. Basically they're selling life insurance.

Yeah, they have super high fees and you get screwed hard for about a decade.  Run.  Run fast.

I'm glad I ran from the job.
