OK; I admit it. I held life insurance license for almost a decade. But, don’t hold that against me.

With any universal life insurance policy (and certainly all variable life policies), fluctuating rates of return, the actual timing of the premium payments, and potential internal policy changes by the insurance company, all contribute to results that will probably differ substantially from the original illustration. So, be sure to monitor them periodically.

The Rule

As a professor of health economics, I know the 5 – 100 Rule states that as a result of accounting for these elements, all initial projections of cash value beyond 5 years, will necessarily be 100 percent incorrect when compared to actuality.

Assessment

A prudent physician policy owner should therefore keep on top of any changes and react accordingly.  If a policy owner ignores his/her policy for even 5 years, any adverse changes could be so drastic as to make rectifying them very costly.
