I have brush but no teeth. What’s your advise?

That you spell it advice

like

It’s spelled advise in British English.

OP: Since you get contributions from your employer so it makes sense to open it. Also even if you go back you can withdraw it with some penalty

Indexed Universal Life Insurance (IUL) - Anyone have one of these ? Never heard of this until the other day when a financial planner mentioned it. He said it’s a better vehicle than 401K. I took what he said with a grain of salt because he was trying to acquire customers, but I haven’t heard anyone talk about it here. At a quick glance it seems pretty solid. Anyone have experience ? Pros/Cons ? Something to add on including the standard 401K, Roth, HSA, etc ?
