LIFE INSURANCE Life insurance is an important, and often neglected, piece of a sound legacy plan. However, it's critical to take a measured and proactive approach to your life insurance. Your life insurance contract needs to be managed and reviewed annually. These are not “set it and forget it” assets. Most people are sold contracts by insurance agents who rarely review them – they make their commission and walk away. Some high net worth individuals will resort to ‘self-insuring’ — without fully grasping the different structures of using life insurance as a cash flow tool.
