There aren’t many investment vehicles available that offer the tax advantages of properly structured, permanent life insurance. Unfortunately, many clients are not aware of those benefits when purchasing term insurance, and they may not know about alternative product solutions.
Within your existing book of clients, do you have any individuals who are hitting the contribution limits in their qualified plans?
If so, Index Universal Life (UL) may be a great concept to introduce to them in your next meeting, as it can provide a number of benefits that are comparable to a qualified plan.
Many of your clients will meet the contribution limits in their qualified plans; believe taxes are only going to increase; will not like exposure to loss of accumulated values due to downturns in the market, and will not like paying taxes on their distributions.
Once your clients provide you with a premium commitment, we will help you to assess their insurability, and prepare proposals that solve for a minimum death benefit and provide the most efficient cash value accumulation.
Ideally, Index UL policies should be funded for 10-15 years prior to taking policy distributions, but they can be customized to meet many different specifications depending on your clients’ age and preferred premium schedule.
Index UL can be an efficient solution for younger clients (ages 30-50) who are looking to further fund their retirement, prepare for a child or grandchild’s school tuition costs, or contribute discretionary income into a product with the tax favored features mentioned above.
We will help you identify clients within your existing database who would be good prospects for this strategy, and will create customized solutions to meet their needs. To learn more about the Index UL products that are now available, and to explore how they can drive new sales opportunities – call your Life Sales Rep today.
