  • Byron Udell defends life insurance companies under investigation for allegedly defrauding military families
    September 22 2010

  • You may have read about a hot topic in the life insurance industry – Several life insurance companies are under investigation for allegedly defrauding military families of millions. In fact, New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo is launching a fraud investigation into the life insurance industry for "practices that appear to have denied grieving military families and others of millions in life-insurance cash". The attorney general's office says it appears some insurers tell families of fallen military personnel that policy payouts will be placed in an interest-bearing account. But the bulk of the interest benefits the insurers, and the cash is not placed in banks insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). In this podcast, Byron Udell, founder and CEO of AccuQuote, talks about this common and even useful practice.
