Clients and prospects increasingly understand the need to supplement their retirement through their own savings efforts – as Social Security and company sponsored pension plans may not provide sufficient income for their retirement goals.
Qualified plans such as 401(k)s are an excellent way to save for retirement, but they are limited and are only available if provided by an employer. Traditional IRAs and Roth IRAs also offer additional saving opportunities, but individuals must meet specific income and contribution limits in order to use these qualified accounts. As a result, clients and prospects need help finding additional solutions that will help them fill the retirement income gap.
Your clients recognize that they need to save as much money as possible, as soon as possible, in order to secure their financial futures. Fortunately, you are well equipped to help clients address their retirement income needs by relying on the knowledge and expertise available to you.
Life insurance, properly structured, can be a valuable tool for clients to supplement their retirement planning efforts.
During their working years, death benefits provide cash when it is needed most – but these funds can be used to decrease debts and replace income so that loved ones can maintain their standard of living.
At retirement, your clients can access policy cash values via tax favored withdrawals and loans. In addition to these benefits, clients can also choose to add a long term care rider that will provide valuable benefits should they have a qualifying long term care expense.
