Hi Jacque,
You are looking for the present value of this investment, so...
Interest = principal x rate x time
I = 120,000 x .02 x 1 [which is what it's worth at year 1]
i= $24,000
Good luck,
Donnie 
nope !  math

No insurance company works with simple interest over 30 years
let the equivalent current salary be x
x(1.02)^30 = 120 000
x = 120000/1.02^30 = $66, 248.51

u r right
it's compound interest, not simple.
