Sales Idea – Is IUL too expensive?

Is Indexed Universal Life Insurance too expensive? To answer that question you should consider a few things. How long will the policy be in force before I access the cash value? Some of the expenses are both fixed and front-loaded. This means the longer the policy is in force and the more the accumulation value increases, the lower the expenses will be as a percentage of the overall cash value. Also, what are the expenses for? A portion of the expenses pay for a death benefit which is an incredibly valuable asset that the client owns from the first day of the policy being in force. Remember this is a life insurance policy and the benefits of the policy are unique to life insurance. Finally, consider a larger expense that is absent from a life insurance policy…taxes. The money grows tax-deferred, is accessed tax-free and pays a tax free death benefit.

Relieve your Clients’ Policy Loan Burden

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before…

During a client review you discover that your client has a life insurance policy that has accumulated cash value. However, you also see that loans have been taken from the policy to pay premiums or for funds for your client. Because the policy may not be performing as expected, the interest rate on the loan is a bit high and mortality costs have decreased…the policy is in danger of lapsing.
