  1. I have read the information and watched the video and still am not really sure how this works. What I mean is this is an insurance policy that you take out and then are able to draw from that if I understand this correctly. My question then is you have a monthly premium to make on this policy, correct? If you then draw from this policy in the form of a loan that needs to be paid back, then you are paying two payments per month or however you decide to repay the loan you have taken plus interest to yourself. If you are paying a monthly premium and a loan payment how does this make any money? I have a loan payment to pay back on one of my policies that continues to have a monthly premium payment. What am I missing in this new concept? Could you please explain?

    Thank you

    • One way to think of this is if you were funding any traditional retirement plan, like a 401k or IRA, and you decide to buy a car, do you stop funding your retirement account so that you can pay back the loan on your car?

      Of course you wouldn’t. if fact, if buying a car and incurring monthly loan payment means you have to stop funding your retirement plan, you can’t afford to buy that car.

      I explain how all of this works in my best-selling book on pages 100 – 103, and in chapters 5 & 6.

    • Yes, you will continue to make your monthly premium. You will also have to repay the loan back with interest over what ever period of time you would like. Remember, you don’t have to repay the policy loan, but when you die, the outstanding loan and the interest you owe on that loan will be subtracted from your death benefit when paid out to your beneficiaries.

      The policy continues to grow when you take a policy loan because the money is not actually being removed from your account. The insurance carrier is loaning you money from the company not from your account. For example if you have $100,000 in a savings account and take out $50,000 to buy a car your savings account now has $50,000 earning 0.1% interest instead of the full $100,000 earning 0.1% interest. With cash value life insurance from a mutual insurance company you could have $100,000 in cash value growing at 5%, when you take a loan of $50,000 from the insurance policy, your cash value balance is not reduced like your savings account would be. This is because it’s a loan from the insurance company and your future death benefit is the collateral if you choose to not repay it. Therefore, your cash value account continues to earn compounding interest on the full $100,000.

      I hope this helps clear things up for you.


  2. If you listen to Pamela’s interview she mentions that within 30 days you can even pull some of your cash value out of the policy to use as you see fit and the only question the insurance company will ask is, “How much?” I read Pamela’s book, filled out the analysis form, she recommended a BOY Professional, I liked what they had to say, got a policy, and once it was set up we were able to pull our money out, re-decorated the upstairs of home and am now paying ourselves back increasing our cash value even more. We are living proof this is the real deal!!

  3. Pamela, I want to thank you for being so open and forthright in your interview. It can be hard to admit some of the things you did, but makes the end result and your passion about BOY that much more real. To a much smaller scale, I feel like I have experienced a similar story – trying to “do the right thing” by my savings and investing and watching a lot of it disappear because others were doing the wrong thing. When I discovered BOY I thought this thing must be too good to be true, but it really is what it says it is and it has worked exactly as described for me (thanks to my Adviser). Since it doesn’t claim to be any kind of get-rich-quick scheme, it can actually deliver what ends up being a miracle for many folks.

    I am looking forward to hearing more about Bank on Yourself Nation!

  4. Hi Pamela,

    The interview was helpful. It answered the question of why you can’t make any recommendations and, why the specifics of the financial plan construct will necessarily be very different for all of us.

    I was contacted by Bruce (financial planner) virtually the day following my online request. My wife and I will be having an in-depth discussion after I’ve had a chance to skim (at least!) your book. If this works out well I plan to share with our children.



  5. The information you provide on the S&P 500 is incorrect. The S&P has shown a growth from 2000 to 2014 of 16.9%. Your advertisement information is incorrect and misleading.

    • Sheesh! The dates cover March 24, 2000 to February 3, 2014, and we show a 14% total increase. Are you really going to make a federal case over a couple percentage points difference, due to the specific dates used?

      And you want us to get all excited about an annual return of just over 1% – BEFORE account for inflation, fees and taxes?!?

  6. Pamela,
    I hear your add on the FOX radio and as soon as I hear it I could think of only one vehicle that could match your claims. I was not surprise when I went to your site and it was dividend paying whole life. I am 70 years old and 20 years ago I bought a $1,000,000 policy from a mutual company.
    We are now receiving a 6% tax free yearly return on our cash values. During the past years we withdrew from the policy and invested in coastal real estate increasing our net worth by over $500,000. Because of the death benefit we were able to take the max from my pensions. The funds have been protected from market turn downs ,disability, and law suits. As you said this is not a new idea,but most life insurance agents do not understand there own product. Best financial decision we have made. I would encourage any one to do business with you.

  7. This sounds just like the “702 j ” retirement plan inacted by president Regan… A life insurance plan that never looses no matter what happens to the market that u can borrow from and still gain.. Please email me back and let me know if it is the same or similar.. Very curious ..

  8. Hello ms. Yellen. If I’m trying to quickly pay off and old student loans, totaling about 75,000, how much would I have to start out with, and how soon could I borrow the money to pay off loans so I can stop all this interest pay..?
