Bonus: When Serious Illness Hits You, You've Got Protection!


The BankingLikeTheRich system, which enables you to earn a profit paying bills, ALSO pays TAX-FREE FUNDS (also known as living and death benefits) to help offset the costs associated with either a terminal illness, chronic illness or critical illness.

70% of people over 65 will need assisted care.

Although the triggering mechanism is medical, once you become eligible you can spend the funds on ANYTHING you like ANYWHERE you like. So if you want to go to Panama to get treated using Stem Cell therapy -- yes you can. There is NO NEED TO SUBMIT receipts. You have complete freedom to spend your tax-free funds as you see fit! Remember, this is NOT a government program! In fact, if you want to spend your time partying like a rock star, then yes you can.

Let's Break It Down...
