Life insurance is so much more than a monthly premium payment you pay to provide a guarantee that your family will receive a lump sum of money should you pass away during the policy period. With life insurance, you can design a comprehensive plan that can act as an investment vehicle AND legacy play for your family and future generations.
In this article, we are going to discuss the reasons why you should consider adding a max funded life insurance policy to your retirement portfolio.
Tax rates were over 90% after WWII and over 70% throughout the 70’s. The highest marginal rate is 37% today. With TRILLIONS of dollars being thrown into the economy, with debts well into the $20 TRILLIONS of dollars. Do you believe tax rates will GO UP in the future?
If so, you need to pay taxes TODAY on the seed (small portion) and create a harvest (big portion) that comes out TAX FREE in the future. Most people LOSE their BIG DEDUCTIONS in retirement, which is why taxes alone are typically HIGHER in retirement.
With a Max Funded Life Insurance policy you can set up plans to avoid paying taxes.
Access to cash is one of the MOST IMPORTANT attributes when you look at where you are putting your money. Imagine you are paying extra towards your MORTGAGE (like most people try - and do and it could be a great strategy, but definitely comes with downfalls) and that’s all your doing for savings.
After a few years of doing this, what happens if you lose your job like we have seen $20 million people do during the COVID-19? You can’t run out and get that money from your mortgage.
What if a couple months later when you continue to fall behind on the mortgage, the bank FORECLOSES on your home? What if that extra savings didn’t go to your home, but to a Max Funded Life Insurance account that would give you access to continue to fund bills until you can get your job back on track?
With a Max Funded Life Insurance policy you can create liquidity opportunities.
It’s very important to have a portion of your portfolio that is safe and secure. The foundation needs to be safe and secure, so when events like COVID-19 come along, it’ll have no short term affect on your financial situation because you know a portion of your money is 100% totally secure giving you peace of mind.
How much of your portfolio should you have secure? However much you want! I personally want a ton of my money in safe positions. With the market always volatile, what if you could get SOME of the MARKET UPSIDE with a GUARANTEE you CAN’T LOSE on the DOWNSIDE?
With a Max Funded Life Insurance policy you can create a secure place to invest your money.
4. Rate of Return
When saving money, you definitely need to give yourself opportunity to earn more than a bank account. Savings are paying well less than 1%, which isn’t even close to keeping up with inflation. Even though your bank account is safe, you could say it is losing money due to inflation.
The Max Funded Life Insurance policies will typically earn 4-7% with TAX ADVANTAGES. That means you would have to earn over 7-9% to net what the Life Insurance is doing.
The other difference? Compounded Growth. When you grow your money with no loss, you get the benefit of compounding growth. If you earn 50% one year and then lose 75% the next, you WIPE OUT all PRIOR GAIN, and then LOSE the TIME it took to get the gain. Compounded Growth is KEY
.With a Max Funded Life Insurance policy you can create a growth opportunities far exceeding a savings account.
5. Death Benefit
This is an added BONUS. If you have a family, this will be very attractive to you. Due to the TAMRA, DEFRA, and TEFRA tax laws, the GOVERNMENT is making you have a life insurance benefit attached to the Max Funded Life Insurance to get the TAX FREE growth.
That’s not a bad thing though, that’s actually a GREAT THING if you love your family. If you live long enough, the LIVING BENEFITS of Tax Free Income, Liquidity, Safety, and Rates of Return will benefit YOU, but if you DIE TOO SOON, the account blossoms for your FAMILY.
With a Max Funded Life Insurance policy you can will receive a death benefit.
