Gene Kits and Insurance

September 4, 2018

Have you tried any of those direct-to-consumer gene testing kits yet? They reveal your genetic makeup like 20% Asian or 45% Scandinavian. But they may also reveal some things you’d rather were kept secret. On this edition of MoneyWise, Rob West and Steve Moore discuss how home gene testing kits can become an obstacle to getting some kinds of insurance. 

Next, they answer your questions at (800) 525-7000 and questions@moneywise.org about the following:

  • If you think your mom's tithing might be playing a part in her financial difficulty,what should you do?  
  • If you and your spouse are in the process of purchasing your first home and your only option for a down payment is to draw funds from your 401(k), is that a good idea?
  • Do biblical financial principles for individuals also apply to churches?
