Paragon Life Insurance Company wants to show employers how they can use life insurance to provide supplemental savings programs for highly paid employees.[@@]

The company, a unit of MetLife Inc., New York, has posted a new, free guide to group variable universal life insurance on the Web at http://www.metlifeiseasier.com/paragonlife

A properly designed GVUL program can provide permanent life insurance for highly paid employees while helping them save more income than they normally can contribute to ordinary retirement plans, MetLife says.
