#2 What role does life insurance currently play in your client’s overall financial plan?
#3 Is the client charitably inclined? Leverage their gifts with life insurance.
#4 Is the client taking minimum distributions they don’t need?
#5 Consider what happens if another advisors sells your client life insurance.
