Term vs Whole Life Insurance

by | | Other Cool Stuff

In this short video (3 min) I explain the difference between term and whole life insurance, and why ER doctors should buy term life insurance and avoid whole life insurance.



  • 99% of ER doctors should buy term life insurance, NOT whole life insurance
  • You BUY term insurance and are SOLD whole life insurance
  • If you’ve been sold whole life insurance, don’t beat yourself up about it. High income professionals (i.e. ER doctors) are targets for insurance salesmen, so it’s not uncommon for a doctor to own whole life insurance. If this is you, work with a fiduciary advisor to discuss your options.
