Life Insurance Introduction

  1. Life insurance is a multifaceted financial planning product that features the following unique tax advantages:
  2. Life insurance death benefits are income tax free.
  3. Assets accumulated inside of a life insurance contract grow tax-deferred.

The assets accumulated inside of a properly structured life insurance contract can be accessed tax free as a living benefit.

Life insurance contracts have historically been available in the following three formats:

Whole Life or Universal Life

Premiums can be calculated to carry a life insurance death benefit for the insured’s entire lifetime. The policy investment activity is limited to insurance company direction and is a part of the general fund of the insurance company. In addition, some companies will enhance the investment activity with dividends.

Whole life contracts principal disadvantage is higher cost of insurance charges, no investment direction and little flexibility.

Choose the strongest company with best crediting rate because insurance is designed to be guaranteed to age 100.

Variable Universal Life

Replaces the investment activity of the general fund of the insurance company with self-directed subaccounts.

Principal disadvantage is that investment activity is subject to market risks. Many new contracts have devised safety net premiums to compensate for the risk of the markets. Works best with a universal life chassis to reduce costs of insurance.

Choose a company that maximizes the choice of sub accounts and provides opportunities across all asset classes.

Tax-advantaged distributions are an important feature. To maximize distributions contracts must provide low cost loans and low cost future fees.

Return of Premium Term

Similar structure to traditional term, but at the end of the policy’s term the owner receives the full amount of all premiums paid into the policy. These policies typically require higher premiums than traditional term policies, but there is value in receiving a return of your premium.
