Subject:  To invest in VUL or not? Date:  9/24/2000  6:13 PM

An acquaintance with Northwestern Mutual Life has been pushing my husband to invest in a VUL - variable universal life policy. We're both 40 - and he works for a Fortune 500 company with a good matching plan, pension, etc.. He already has a $1 million life ins. policy (term) - $93.00/month.

Is it worth it, (he suggests investing $2,000/monthly) - for tax benefits alone?? Do you think this amount of money would be better spent paying off our home or investing elsewhere? Please advise. What are the pros/cons of this investment vehicle?? Thank you!!
