When it comes to life insurance, it pays to quit smoking -- but do you realize just how much you could save?
Some products that are marketed as insurance are best avoided.
California and other states suspect that life insurance companies haven't done enough to verify when policyholders have died and track down beneficiaries.
40 of the nation's largest life insurance companies have not tried to find policy beneficiaries, commissioner says.
Insurance companies don't track when policyholders have died, although they could, instead leaving it to beneficiaries to file a claim. Some states are challenging that practice.
Many people would cut back on life insurance after financial setback, a poll finds. Others wouldn't dream of cutting any insurance.
It might seem harsh, but lying about being a smoker is insurance fraud and that is not something taken lightly.
