Personal Life Insurance
Corporate Owned Life Insurance (COLI)
Over 68% of Fortune 1000 companies utilize life insurance as part of their Supplemental Executive Retirement Plans (SERPs). These can be structured as tax advantaged deferred compensation plans with zero contribution limits. While owned by the company, the policy is an asset on the books, and premiums may be a deductable expense. If the company chooses to pay the taxes on premiums paid, the owner may take tax advantaged distributions from the policy.

Many partnerships have legal requirements for partners to have life insurance policies on each other. In the event of a tragic and unexpected passing, the surviving heirs are many times bequeathed the passing partner’s interest in the business. The buy/sell agreement life insurance policies give the surviving partners access to immediate cash, tax free, to buy the passing partners shares from their family.

Personal Life Insurance
Today’s life insurance has so many benefits. Once someone understands all that can be done with life insurance, the question ususally isn’t “should I buy”….it’s “how much can I buy?”. Death benefits designed to protect your family are received tax free. Cash value in the policy grows tax deferred, and you can access that cash for any reason in the form of tax advantaged distributions. Some policies cash value tracks an index allowing you to participate in market gains and protection from market losses. Other policies offer the ability to access the death benefit in the event of a qualifying illness or injury to help pay medical bills during trying times. Today, life insurance is not just about the death benefit…it’s about the living benefits.
