Has anyone ever borrowed against their life insurance?

I was just wondering how it works. I'm in a finacial pinch. I've been off work for a couple months due to medical issues and could really use the money.

  • You can borrow against the cash value of a WL or UL policy, IF it has cash value. If you don't pay it back, then it would be deducted from the death benefit that gets paid to the beneficiary. Or, worst case scenario, it would leave your policy being worth nothing, "imploding" on itself. There is interest charged on the loan.
