SELECTED COMPREHENSION PASSAGES

By insuring your life the companies are getting money, your hard earned one for using it in the present; and what you get in return : an assurance that, God forbid, if you die somehow other than naturally, your nominee would get this and that financial benefits. It is quite another matter that it is, believe it or not, not very easy to get your claim settled without impediments of the official viruses.
