Furthermore, no shrinkage, no "for ~les, "no anxiety having to sell the South 40 for $100 an acre when it's worth $225. The key.., liquidiW. The foolproof product that will provide the money to pay the cost of seffJing an estate at the time of death is life insurence. Many substitutes have guaranteed not to shrink, ravel at the seams or fade out to provide cash to settle an estate but nothing compares with life insurance. There is no estate; therefore, no cost of estate settlement until death occurs. When it does, life insurance becomes money bought on installment to solve this problem.
