I read you comments and the posts you suggested to explain Variable Universal Life,thanks. I too have been approached by WMA-- who by the way is launching an ISP that will "rival AOL in a year"-- very Amway. I'm not a fan of the universal policies, but I had not heard that these vehicles are a tax shelter. I can't get a straight answer from the rep and I know I'm being SOLD on the VUL and the ISP. I'm not asking you to comment on WMA. My question is can you beat the tax man well enough with a VUL to come out better than an IRA or a good buy and hold strategy?
