DW teaches elementary school and I was amazed that they still peddle this stuff to kids. Must be a nice kickback to the school.

I think you might be confusing one thing with another....

Yes, a life insurance policy has to pay out higher than 'cash value' or it is not life insurance... this is not what was said earlier...

What was said earlier is that they have to pay out more than the premiums paid in... since premiums paid in does not equal cash value... well...

The policy IS higher than the cash value... it is just that the cash value is low... and much lower than premiums paid...
