Broadcast Excerpts
 
Penny:
The Life insurance industry is just about the last industry anyone expected would have become a victim of high tech. But it has. And thankfully to consumer advantage. The very idea of paying for life insurance, or any type of insurance for that matter, is unappealing to most of us, but one insurance company out of Maple Glen, Pennsylvania, says that they can provide AAA rated insurance at a fraction of the cost of traditional insurance companies. How?

Mark:

But how can a company provide true advice when the traditional advice process is commission based? Bardes Consulting says they know how. Our Doug Eberhart investigates.
