Term to Perm Insurance

Is it common practice to get term insurance and then as you get closer to the end of your term to convert some or all of it to permanent? Are there pros/cons of doing this? If recommended what do you need to look for on your term insurance when you get it so you have this option.

Re: What is your most memorable 1 week vacation?

DFrank, night time there must be incredible - can't imagine the night sky you'd see. What the name of the rig your towing? Is it Australian? Thanks. Yes, the night skies in south-central Utah are amazing. Natural Bridges National Monument, which is nearby, was the first International Dark Sky Park....

Brokerage Sub Portofolios/Accounts?

My uncle wants to help his two grandsons about investing.

He'd like to have a main account but be able to track the two boys progress individually like two sub portfolios? Do online brokerages, e-trade, etc... offer that ability? Or is he stuck with having to open two different accounts?

Thanks!

Re: Could I retire…. next week?

Dennis,

Others can offer better advice than me, but I wanted to extend my sympathies for your loss. I can't put into words the pain you are probably going through but will offer this quote by A.A. Milne.

How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.

Re: [Visiting] Oahu

You guys/gals are awesome, in case no one has told you yet. Several restaurant reservations now made. I will post them when I get a chance. I think we are going to rent a car for our last 3 or 4 days there, man parking looks like it is crazy expensive ($35 a day). We will probably try and book a Pea...

Monthly/Quarterly/Annually? investing

How much should one have before making purchases of a MF or ETF, say like VTSM. Is a 3-4 hundred a month too small and should save up and wait to buy bigger chunks?

Thanks,
Rogers

Re: What do different classes of a fund mean?

Edited original to show its an ROTH IRA. Yeah 2.14% just seems high to me. According to AmeriPrise site, Vanguard funds are available through them, I wonder if his planner would allow a transfer to that fund.

Re: What do different classes of a fund mean?

So if I get him to transfer out of that fund, he'd take a 1% hit on the transfer? I assume that his planner would then start to charge him for services as he pays nothing right now but all he has is a roth anyways...

Re: Taxable investing [Portfolio Help]

Thank you all for the replies!
The ETF for TSM seems to have the same ER has the Admiral TSM.
If I opened a Vanguard Brokerage account, I'd avoid the 9.99 commission from e-trade I think.

For i-bonds, are those just individual savings bonds that you can only get through treasury direct?
