"They are very unethical and not wise with money. 99.9% of cases they want you to buy whole life. Spent 1 billion on LearnVest vaporware. Spent 1 billion on new building. Employees stay because no ware else to go. They push us planners to lie and go against the commonsense approach of by term and invest the difference. They and the sunsidaries hide breaches. Executive payouts are extremely high. They need to be investigated by the FTC, SEC, OCR, etc."

"Sold me a cash building policy. Once I learned how the policy worked I was extremely upset. I was told I was going to be building a retirement savings with this policy. Turns out, if I passed away, my wife would get the insurance benefit but the company would keep my savings. I can't believe I was sold that policy. The agent sold me a product that paid him a higher commission instead of doing the right thing for my family and I."

"I bought a whole life plan from an advisor at NM and Mass Mutual. I didn't know which was better so I bought both - this was about 8 years ago and I have added 4 NM policies as it's performance is beating the MassMutual Policy. NM is a fantastic company"

"It seems rather odd that you can't redo a nicotine test. We were looking at our polices and tried to get the lower non smoking cost. My husband didn't pass the saliva test, when asked was told that he could not repeat it and as a matter of a fact would not even accept a blood test from a MD for nicotine hmmmm makes one sit back and wonder... Are you afraid of being found out..."

"Northwestern charges 8% interest on policy loans Current short term market rates are under 1% and these loans are fully collateralized by the policy. This means NO RISK and huge profits for the company. The company should be ashamed. They have been sued - but this should be a violation of usury laws its such an blatant display of greed."

"Northwestern Mutual has been charging 8% interest on policy loans for over 30 years, even though they promised to charge me interest rates based on economic conditions. They are ripping off clients like me who trusted them. I learned at that a class action was brought by someone for charging this outrageously high rate. It is about time. "

"Northwestern Mutual, Milwaukee, Wisconsin is the premier life company in the world. The bottom line is they only hire agents that have the capability of getting in front of large volumne insurance purchasers who are responsible and understand the value of insurance. I have had my policies since age 27 (now 65) and NML has always exceeded the benefits of their policies. It has been the bedrock of my investment assets and has exceeded returns in other investments in gold, oil, real estate and stock endeavors with the recommendations from quality professional people in those categories. NML is one of corporate America's stars in delivering what they say they will."

"Very professional reps, not pushy"
Commented on 2008-06-18 13:43:39 EST
"As a licensed and practicing insurance professional, NML (now known as NMFN) is the single most solid life insurance carrier in the nation. Their dividend payouts over the years are equal to none. Yes, their life policies are more expensive than others out there, but the returns in the long run make it worth the investment. BTW, although I'm in the business, I am not contracted to sell with NML, so this review is in no way biased that way. "
