~ Starting balance in IUL and S&P of $10,000~ Monthly contribution $1,000 to IUL and S&PI bypassed this earlier, but now that you've repeated it, I have to ask...Do you realize how much this is??? Now absurd it sounds?$1000/mo is $12,000/yr.2013 - 1965 is 48 years. Total contribution is $576,000. Oh, plus the initial $10,000. $586,000.Back of envelope figuring: Rule of 72 says 7.2% growth doubles every 10 years. Average S&P growth is close to 7.2%, so let's go with that. So we double about 5 times. Average balance is half of $586K or $293K. Double that 5 times = 32 times. 32 * $293K = about NINE MILLION dollars.When figured accurately, the 1/1/2003 value of S&P500 B&H is $6,200,000.SIX MILLION DOLLARS.That's only back-of-envelope figuring. Details to come.
