Subject: foreign life insurance

Dani Kollin says he was told that a foreign life insurance policy cannot be 
used for any cryonics organization here. That is not correct. 

In some countries, e.g. England, the law does not allow a corporation to be 
beneficiary. However, this can be gotten around by using a "deed of trust."

We don't have information on all countries, but as long as the life insurance 
company is willing to accept Cryonics Institute as beneficiary, and absent 
any special problems, we will accept a foreign life insurance policy as 
funding for our contract.
