Insurance policies that you do and don’t need

Season 2 Episode 28

Insurance policies that you do and don’t need

This episode of Edelman Financial Engines’ Everyday Wealth™ is, as Jean describes it, “everything you ever needed to know about insurance but didn’t know enough to ask.” Jean is joined by wealth planner Isabel Barrow and insurance expert Rob Bain from Edelman Financial Engines, to break down which policies you should have, like long-term care, life insurance and disability. And which ones you probably don’t need. They also cover lesser-known policies, like umbrella insurance, and bust a few myths along the way.

 

This show is pre-recorded, and any callers are prescreened.

Ms. Chatzky receives cash compensation for acting as hosts of the Everyday Wealth radio show and podcast and for related activities and therefore has an incentive to endorse Edelman Financial Engines and its planners.  That compensation is a fixed sum paid on an annual basis; and reimbursement for certain expenses.  The amount paid each year does not vary, is not based on show content or any results-dependent factors (e.g., popularity of the show).
