This would be a supplement to a 401 K that I've built up over the past 25 years.

Thoughts?

Add this or keep contributing to 401K (some balanced funds and bonds as well as international stocks) and a online trading accounts (US stocks mostly tech and younger companies). but then be vulnerable to market shifts and taxes down the road.
Just do your research on the company. I have a term policy through Genworth which was a highly rated company. They got butt****ed by their LTC policies and donít do shit with life anymore and all the features that would be nice are out the window.

Typically you can do better in mutual funds but itís not a terrible tool.
