    If it's a simple whole life policy or other sort of non-indexed policy where the cash component grows due to your premiums and interest I'd probably just set up a generic "asset" Account.  I'd probably use the generic asset Account for other cash value policies that contain an "investment" element, though I suppose an "investment" Account could also be used, though insurance isn't generally viewed as an investment in the conventional sense.

    It looks like Quicken just added "other investment" as an account option in the release I updated yesterday. I think I will use that. Thank you.
