More than 100,000 Americans of all ages, incomes, and backgrounds are already using Bank On Yourself to grow a nest-egg they can predict and count on, even when stocks, real estate, and other investments tumble.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

T. Harv Eker, author, N. Y. Times #1 best seller, Secrets of the Millionaire Mind
"If you’re looking for more of the same conventional financial advice, this isn’t the book for you. But if you’re prepared to take back control of your financial life once and for all, Bank On Yourself is a ground-breaking method that can put you on the fast track to reaching your goals and dreams."

Mark Victor Hansen, co-author, Chicken Soup for the Soul series
"This book reveals a unique, powerful and time-tested method that can guarantee your financial security and peace of mind now and in the years to come."

Library Journal

In this current economic downturn, investors have been looking for more secure ways to invest. Here, consultant Yellen outlines how to use a particular type of whole life insurance policy as a personal bank. The concept has much in common with the infinite banking method developed by Nelson Nash and relies on a thorough understanding of the intricacies of life insurance policies and when they become taxable. The methodology behind the Bank on Yourself® (BOY) system has been proven sound and effective, but it requires a long-term commitment from the investor and an investment adviser who knows about setting up a dividend-paying life insurance and what companies offer it. Most of this book is dedicated to stories and testimonials of how it has worked for individuals, but it provides very little information on the best way to start the program. When Yellen does provide information, it is generally linked to her web site. Overall, her book comes off as a pitch for the program rather than a balanced explanation on how to use life insurance as a potential investment strategy. For some interested readers.

    Spend and Grow Wealthy!

    At long last, a book about money management that is easy to read and makes so much sense, that you will be thinking, "Why haven't I heard about this before!" Pamela Yellen not only covers this fascinating subject with story-telling magic, she explains the basics and the advantages of "Banking On Yourself" so that anyone can see how this concept will provide them with lifetime financial benefits.

    My wife and I both have BOY plans in place, and we have been using our plans to finance major purchases for our new home. So far, we have financed our lawn tractor and custom-built out-building for storing it, our irrigation well, and several capital investments in my own business. We will soon be financing our next vehicle ourselves and paying ourselves back with interest, enabling us to get the full purchase price and interest back over the payback period, which we determine, not some finance company!

    The best thing about our BOY plan is the financial peace of mind we now have knowing that our plan is rock-solid, guaranteed to increase our wealth each and every year, and we know with certainty how much equity we will have in our plan five, ten, twenty years from now. And as Pamela teaches in her book, the more purchases we finance ourselves, the more equity we will have down the road!

    Thanks to Bank On Yourself, we can "spend and grow wealthy" without worrying about what happens in the stock or real estate markets!

    Clever plan--not always the right answer

    First off, I'm not sure why the author things CFPs would discourage plans like these--if they make money, I want my clients to use them because then they can continue to pay me :-) It kind of sounds like Mrs. Yellen is trying ot stir up conspiracy theory to make you think this is a lot more valuable than it is.

    Here's the plan: you get a whole life insurance policy with a PUA rider (Paid-Up Additions) and invest (in yourself basically) up to the MEC limit. These investments will return dividends, which you reinvest in the policy. Now when you get to the MEC limit (during the capitalization period of about 5-6 years), you can take out loans on your policy (interest on which is tax deductible) and pay (yourself) back over time.

    This is a pretty good plan for people who are risk averse. It will probably beat your average savings account interest (especially nowadays) and the tax deductions are a nice perk. The whole process is reminiscent of books likeSurviving the Second Great Depression and How to Take Advantage of the People Who Are Trying to Take Advantage of You--clever ways to take advantage of the system.

    I wouldn't normally follow advice from people who buys time shares, but this seems like a decent gander.
