The Income Stream Death Benefit – Part Two

Presented by Brian Leising

I’d like to help you close more life insurance sales by showing how an income stream death benefit can help your clients save money and better understand how their coverage works. We will explore the problem in part one, present a money-saving solution in part two and simplify everything in part three.

What’s the solution?

  1. Conduct a needs analysis with everyone you see, discuss paying off debts and funeral expenses, funds for college and income replacement.
  2. Instead of a lump sum for their income replacement needs, use an income stream death benefit to clearly show how life insurance fulfills a client’s needs. Several insurance companies offer clients the exact income amount and time period they need to replace lost income. Better yet, clients receive a discount when choosing an income stream rather than purchasing a lump sum. For example, assuming a male age 35 receiving the best available rate class, $1,000,000 of 30 year term would cost $814 per year. If the need was actually to provide $50,000 per year for 20 years (still a $1,000,000 pay-out) the client could pay as little as $647.75 per year using an income stream death benefit option. That’s about a 20% savings in annual premiums amounting to a total of nearly $5000 over the life of the 30 year term policy.
