Annuity Maximization

Annuity maximization is a leveraging technique in which annuity assets are used to purchase life insurance. The goal is to provide a greater death benefit for beneficiaries. Though annuities may be an excellent tax-deferred growth vehicle, they are not generally designed to transfer wealth. Life insurance may be an ideal wealth transfer solution for your clients.

Business Insurance: Buy-Sell

Whether your clients own a large company or a small family-operated business, the success of any business depends on smart strategy and planning.

Business Insurance: Executive Bonus

An executive bonus arrangement can be a powerful, yet simple way to provide a valuable benefit for company owners and key employees. It can help reduce turnover of key employees that could result in significant financial losses.

Business Insurance: Key Person

Most companies have a person(s) whose skills are vital to the success of the business. A key person may be an owner, partner, or employee without whom the business would suffer serious consequences.

College Funding

The primary purpose of life insurance is to provide a death benefit to beneficiaries. It can be designed to meet your clients’ changing needs with features such as flexible death benefit and flexible premiums. Death benefit protection can make life insurance an attractive choice for establishing a self-completing plan to help fund a college education. Permanent life insurance that can accumulate cash value may be used to help pay for college costs.

Legacy Building

Legacy Building is a strategy that uses permanent life insurance to offer death benefit protection and efficiently pass on assets to beneficiaries. Typically, the strategy starts with funds the client already plans to pass along to family. These funds are used to purchase a life insurance policy, which may immediately increase the amount in the form of the death benefit.

Longevity Planning

Longevity Planning is a strategy that helps your clients prepare for a long, healthy retirement, while also providing for loved ones in case of death. The desire to travel, a new home, new hobbies, and gifting assets are all desires that might be beyond your client’s current plan for income replacement in their later years. An unexpected illness might also make a long retirement more costly.

Pension Maximization

The typical defined benefit pension plan may pose several challenges for your clients—mostly, a potentially lower monthly income during retirement, as well as a lack of flexibility to change the beneficiary or the election option. The pension maximization strategy can help your clients gain death benefit protection while making the most out of a pension plan.

Smart Money

Smart money is money your clients want to control and be able to access during times of need. While there are several options for where to keep this smart money, one that’s often overlooked is permanent life insurance. It can provide the opportunity to build cash value for financial needs down the road, while also providing death benefit protection to help a family continue, or to pass down a legacy.
