    I will be 60 years in August. I have a daughter who finally found a job. It does not include health insurance or pension. And many jobs today might give you some health insurance. But pensions are out of the question. So what I feel I will do is take out another life insurance policy. I will name her as beneficiary so that after I am gone she will have money to put away for her pension. Also, I understand that life insurance is a tax free item.
