The Tony Steuer Podcast with Barry Flagg, Michael Brohawn and Bill Comfort: A Conversation On Managing Life insurance

Jan 18, 2024

In this episode, I spoke with Barry Flagg, Founder of Veralytic, Michael Browhawn, founder of Your Life Insurance Solutions and Bill Comfort, Owner of Comfort Long Term Care about managing life insurance policies.  We discussed in-force life insurance illustrations and  and how an advisor can transition from being a sales person to being a trusted advisor.

“When looking at a life insurance policy, you’ve got to understand three things: what’s being charged inside the policy and is it fair, what is the performance required to meet your expectations and is it reasonable, and are those performance expectations consistent with your risk profile. Cost, performance and risk - consumers have to understand that”. - Barry Flagg

“When looking at a life insurance policy, break it down to the characteristics of different types of policies and then focus in on the premium flexibility (is it required or is it flexible), the investment risk which goes hand in hand with cash value (is there a need for cash value), the death benefit guarantee, and then focus on the cost.” - Michael Brohawn

“If you’re buying long term care insurance or have an interest in having a benefit like that, you have to work with someone who represents all of the different options, otherwise you will not get a fair comparison. It’s making sure that you’re exposed to being educated from a non-biased place as much as possible, knowing what all of the options are.” - Bill Comfort
